We like to do a vaginal scan as this gives us better visualization of your developing baby and where the pregnancy is developing in your uterus.You will be able to see the difference in the clarity of the scan across your tummy compared to a vaginal scan on our wall-mounted monitors.The sonographer will leave the room after the scan to review the images and to discuss them with the Radiologist.You will be given your expected due date on the day and will be able to take away images of the scan on our USB stick.This is an ultrasound scan that is performed early in the pregnancy.
You will be asked to lie on the table and to expose your tummy and a towel will be tucked into your pants to limit spread of the gel onto your clothes.
After your scan the sonographer will leave the room to discuss the images with the radiologist or obstetrician who may require more images to be performed.
This is normal practice and nothing to be alarmed about.
Occasionally there is some discomfort from probe pressure on a full bladder or from the vaginal probe manipulation. You will be able to get your expected due date of your baby on the day.
You will be made aware if there is anything of concern on the day.
