Can anyone tell me if the NT scan is transvaginal or abdominal? Just want to know what to expect today
Should be abdominal. Unless for any reason they are having a hard time seeing baby they may try trans-vaginal but not likely. Good luck!
They did both for mine. First abdominal and then transvaginal to look at the cervix.
I have one Monday. I really hope it's just abdominal. I've never had a transvaginal and I really don't want one now!
Good question, I didn't even think about it being transvag.
They only do it internally if you're before 12 weeks pregnant, because baby is too small to get a good shot through your belly at that stage. You should be OK for an abdominal one...
Last time I had both- abdominal and then he did transvag because I have fibroids that were making it hard to see everything he needed to see. This time, the dr. was able to just do abdominal. MUCH prefer abdominal only.
I am 13 weeks so hopefully the transvaginal won't be necessary. Thinking about an internal ultrasound gives me the creeps!!
Thanks everyone, it was abdominal although I had to pull my pants down a little because they wanted to get the wand really low. Everything looked good with baby, chances are as low as possible for Down's and trisomy so that was a relief! DH couldn't come in the room because somewhere in the referral they forgot to tell me that kids under the age of 10 can't be in the room. That was disappointing. The baby was moving and grooving and even put his/her hand up to their forehead in a "drama queen" type move. Uh oh I might have my hands full!
So they gave you the results right away? I was hoping they would say something one way or the other while I was in there instead of making me wait for the doctor. I guess I need to call and find out the policy on their bringing children because I planned on bringing my 4 year old so she could see the baby.
**So I called the place I am getting the ultrasound and they said they will allow my daughter and husband to come back after they get their initial measurement. YAY!!**
Jesicah- Yay for allowing your DD and DH back! I had my blood drawn for the scan two weeks ago so they put the NT number in to the computer and got a print out of the results. The OB met with me right afterwards to tell me the good news.
I haven't had the blood work yet so I probably won't get any results. The doctors office I go to is a branch and they only do ultrasounds at the main office. So I probably won't even see my doctor after the ultrasound.
So cute!!! TFS.
Aww great pictures!:)
Awesome pictures, I love the little "drama queen" move! So cute!!!
Very cute pics
Beautiful baby you're growing!
