    OK, so the consensus is no need to hold my pee... especially since I, too, am peeing rather frequently.

    I cannot think of any reason why you'd need a transvaginal scan at 20 weeks. Those are used to see small things, and I didn't even have one at the dating scan during any of my pregnancies. Maybe if you have a cyst or something? But not for the baby.

    And my other love: writing
  • Due to being under staffed the only day they could fit me in is the day before I hit 21 weeks according to my lmp, thing is my last US dated baby a day earlier ( I know it's a day, but I still wonder if I should push to get a different day) I see my midwive in two days I'll just have to wait and see what she thinks. Normally I wouldn't think a day off would be a big deal but she bolded the cut off date like it was extra important, and she hadn't received my ultrasound results at the time she ordered my AS. 

    they told me I did NOT have to have a full bladder for the AS.

  • Mine is scheduled for Thursday and I'm getting nervous!  I didn't have any of the genetic testing done so I feel like I have a lot to worry about.  I'm sure the week will drag on like molasses.

  • We're going on Saturday morning. Is the ultrasound sound machine of higher quality than the ones used before? Some pics look 3D. I'm nervous and excited at the same time!
  • Am I supposed to eat something beforehand? Sounds like some of you ate sugar. My doctor didn't say anything.

  • @jennas312 the discussion of sugar came up as my LO was stubborn for his/her NT scan and I wanted to make sure that he/she is active enough to "show the goods" so I dont get stuck not knowing.

  • @NYCProf Every place is different, so some will have machines that can do 3D and others won't.

    @jennas312 I wasn't told anything about eating or drinking something before the scan. And I didn't, and all was fine.

  • My anatomy scan is tomorrow morning and I'm now entering freak out mode.  My scan was almost moved up due to concerns over the type of abdominal pain I had for a couple of weeks, but since I wasn't bleeding my OB kept it as is.  18w tomorrow... still not feeling pregnant... still no movement (not overly concerned there).... still not gaining the weight back that I lost.  
  • Good luck tomorrow @Elyse1384!! I'm sure all is well. I can't wait to hear your update!

    Depends how sleepy your baby is typically. I only had a glass of juice and baby slept the whole time, we didn't get to see the sex of the baby (which is a blessing now because surprises are amazing) but if I had a second chance I would have woken baby up because it was very difficult for the tech to get the shots 
  • I have no idea if baby is sleepy or not lol

  • Good luck tomorrow, @Elyse1384!

    @jennas312, mine said to eat. I always drink something sugary beforehand to ensure an awake baby. This time I get to drink my glucola before, baby will be bouncing!
    Elyse1384
  • Mines in 4 weeks! I'll for sure eat something on the way there. Haven't decided if I'll just drink orange juice or Dr. Pepper. I don't want it moving TOO much!

  • Good luck tomorrow @Elyse1384

    With DD's anatomy scan, I hadn't eaten in a bit and she was so sleepy that they gave me juice and then literally had me jumping up and down to get the views they needed. This time around I had a bit of an iced latte - definitely did the trick! Little guy was quite the wiggle worm

  • Glad to hear all went well with your scans @TGmomtobe90 and @Elyse1384. Sorry about the cyst! I had a similar surprise at my AS when the tech said I have a uterine fibroid, which was never mentioned at my IVF clinic when I had a bajillion scans to prep for my FET. So either it popped up out of nowhere or they just never told me about it. My MFM isn't concerned about it though and said it won't affect my pregnancy at all.
