And my husband, we never got to sit next to each other in the consulting room, my husband was across the room from me, and I was sat next to the consultant, and we were laughing and joking with him about, you know, the home delivery, and everything was going to be, 'Are you still on for the home delivery?' 'Yes, if that's okay with you,' kind of thing, like you do.A small amount of ultrasound gel is put on the skin of the lower abdomen, with the ultrasound probe then scanning through this gel.The gel helps improve contact between the probe and your skin. It involves scanning with the ultrasound probe lying in the vagina.Not only that but Clearblue Digital Pregnancy tests can be used up to 4 days before your expected period * and the unmistakably clear 'Pregnant' or 'Not Pregnant' results in words make them easier to read than traditional line tests, which can be hard to interpret (studies have shown that 1 in 4 women can misread line test results) Strips are typically very small, can be fragile and are rather difficult to use.You need to collect a urine sample, often with no collection device provided, and then dip the small test strip into your sample. And so, yeah we got to, carried on with the pregnancy, kept seeing the consultant, kept sitting in the waiting room outside, because there was a terribly long waiting time sometimes, depending on what time you had the appointment.
Consisting of two separate parts, cassettes require you to drop urine on to a 'sample well' with a fiddly plastic pipette – making them feel like a confusing science experiment.
Anyway we went in for the meeting with the consultant on this particular time, and we'd got to, I was 30 weeks pregnant by then. I'd had the scan in the scanning room, I can't remember what they call it now, it's silly, it's gone from my head.
And I, my husband and I both ran our own business at the time so we were desperate to get back and do some work, and things were going really well, so..
However, in the early pregnancy, the developing embryo is very small (at 6 weeks gestation, the baby is only 5-9mm long) and a transvaginal ultrasound may be required to get a better image of the baby.
Transvaginal ultrasound is safe and commonly performed during all stages of pregnancy, including the first trimester. Transabdominal ultrasound involves scanning through your lower abdomen.
