I have an ultrasound booked in for next monday. I am around 15 or 16 weeks and am just wondering if it will be an internal one or an external one. I am kinda thinking it will be external (am really hoping). I am a bit odd and really dont think I can deal with an internal one. I forgot to ask the doctor when he reffered me so I figured I would ask here. At what stage do they stop giving internals?

Ultrasound - Internal or External?

They are usually external. But if they request to do an internal u can always refuse.

I've only ever had one internal
ultrasound and that was because they needed to get a closer look at my twins' problems.
My other pregnancies have never had an internal.

I thought they only did internals when bub is too small to see via an external? So about 5 weeks or so.
I'm sure they'll do an external

I had internals for first 12 weeks because I had a really retro vetted uterus. My ob does them in her office and I'm really comfortable with her

Sweet! No internal! I feel much better. Was having a little freak out at the idea for a minute.

Only time I have had internals has been less than 8/9 weeks when bub was too small to see externally. I think you are pretty safe

I had an ultrasound at 7 weeks and it was external, they were able to see what they needed

I have internals because I have to get my short cervix watched plus I have a retroverted uterus, but that usually bounces into the right position after 12 weeks or so!
