I've got an early scan booked when I'll be 8+1.
if you had an early scan, when was it and was it trans- abdominal or trans-vaginal? It doesn't bother me either way as I've had several of both, just curious is all.

I had a scan at 7+6 and had the standard trans-abdominal scan. Took them a little while to find baby bean but once they did heart was beating away!
I was fully expecting to have a trans-vaginal scan but apparently after 6-7 weeks trans-abdominal scans are usually all that is needed :)
Good luck with yours!

I e had scans at 6, 7 and 8 weeks. All abdominal x

I had a scan at 7 weeks which they dated as 6, and it was abdominal, you could see everything perfectly well.

I had a scan at the epu at 7+3 and she wasn't happy with the abdominal scan picture so to get a better view she also did a transvaginal. Hope it goes well lovely x

My scan was at 5+5 by my dates and was abdominal but when they couldn't see anything went for trans-vaginal where they saw just fluid and were worried I had an ectopic. Thankfully it wasn't and I was dated back by two weeks but then at dating scan when I was 12+5 by epau dates I was actually 14+3 with EDD exactly matching my LMP! No idea where he was at that first scan, but it was no great surprise to me when he arrived at 41+6!

All internal until 12 week scan so I think 5 internally xx

Mine was at 7 weeks and no *** cam required, heartbeat popped up straight away too.

I had a scan at 7+5 which was abdominal. She also did if vaginally to see if the picture was clearer but it wasn't, apparently my uterus is tipped at a funny angle.

I was 8 weeks by measurement at my scan and it was trans abdominal and super easy to find the baby and heartbeat!

I went for my first scan at 7+1, all external, I was FULL of water (like they say to do in the letter), no idea whether that helped, but we got everything we needed quickly and easily. Is yours soon? Good luck!

I've has internal scans at 5,6 & 7 weeks and all were internal

I was 7+4 and she found the heartbeat with an external scan but did an internal for us to see things better. My uterus was retroverted so it made it harder to see thiga externally.

8+3 here and was abdominal xx
17/11/2013 at 09:36
I was 8 weeks according to my dates, and 8+1 according to scan at EPU - it was abdominal and didn't take them too long to find the little blob with his heartbeat. x
