    I went for mine yesterday. I'm from Melbourne so I don't know if it's different in different states. I went to hospital and I had to have a full bladder to do the ultrasound. Bubs was too small to find so we did an internal ultrasound. The lady showed me what she found and showed us the yolk sac and the baby and the heartbeat. Didn't get any pictures. Then a report is going back to my doctor and then it's up to your doctor for your next scan. Whether they want to do another one in a few weeks or wait till twelve weeks.

    I had mine at 7w, but I assume it would be the same.

    We got an X-ray of the scans to keep, which we could pick up from the u/s place about 3 hrs after the scan was done.

    I'm in Sydney btw, if that makes a difference

    congrats! i had mine as had no idea where we were at because of a recent m/c. turns out i was 6w5d on the day. they had to do a transvaginal one as they couldn't see much the normal way. but there it was with a strong heartbeat, we were so relieved!

    but don't freak out if you go and they can't see much or a heartbeat yet, it may just be too early.

    we were given a couple of pictures then and there - not that you can really see anything, its just a blob!

    good luck!

    My early scans are always done by OBs and they usually give me pictures to take home. yes they do look like little blobs but they all go into an album!!

    I only want pics for my mum, it's how I'm going to tell her but I haven't really thought about what you actually get when I go! Even the report would be enough. I'm also very scared of the d!ld0 cam as I've read in other posts :O

    With DS they sent the pictures of the scan to my doctors and when I went in to see her for a check up she gave them to me.

    With this pregnancy, I got them 10 minutes after my scan! I was pleasantly surprised!

    Im in QLD.

    The internal ultrasound isn't that bad. There's discomfort but nothing compared to a pap smear.

    I hope I get the pics straight away!!! FX I'm just thinking about the mixed peculiar feeling-in a room with DP at such a happy, intimate time hearing our child's heartbeat and seeing it for the first time....meanwhile I'm getting an internal. I'm just such a private person, I'm trying to quell my anxiety about my feelings
