Hi I'm having an early scan on 22nd December. I'll be 7 weeks then. I've read through some posts here and noticed that this needs to be done internally sometimes? Does anyone know exactly what happens?? Thanks Mischa :wv

I had a scan at 7 weeks and it was a normal one... picked up everything fine. Although I'm sure there are other people here that have had internals after that stage....

i have had 4 internal scan over the course of the pregnancies. it's nothing to worry about. tbh the wand looks a bit like a dildo ! they put a condom on it and then lots of gel and insert it into your vagina. i felt a v v slight discomfort when it was going in and then once inside there is no discomfort. hth.

I had a scan at 7 weeks and it was internal. It was not painful or anything of the kind... It was just uncomfortable However I was just so excited to see my little bean that I didn't care. We had been ttc for 2 and half years and was due in for a lap and dye when found out I was pregnant.

My scan was at the EPU in Waterford. We got one picture, just looked like a little bean literally. We were chuffed coming home! I framed it and hid it in my wardrobe. The midwife even joked that he looked like DH. Hope all goes well for you and that you'll get a cute little pic to keep.
