hi was just wondering when you found out you were pregnant when did you see your doctor?
Transvaginal ultrasound is safe and commonly performed during all stages of pregnancy, including the first trimester. Transabdominal ultrasound involves scanning through your lower abdomen.
A small amount of ultrasound gel is put on the skin of the lower abdomen, with the ultrasound probe then scanning through this gel.
If the pregnancy is very early the gestation sac and fetus will not be big enough to see, so the transvaginal approach will give better pictures.
For transvaginal ultrasound you can have an empty bladder Dating scans are usually recommended if there is doubt about the validity of the last menstrual period.
