I'm not sure where to put this, but since my dh and I were TTC I thought it could go here..
Has anyone had a transvaginal ultrasound before? What were your experiences?
I had one yesterday, and I'm not sure what to think...
DH and I started TTC in early May. Not long after I really felt pregnant (super PMSy, ultra-fatigue, odd cramps, frequent urination, constipation, sore BBs, a little nausea). Even though I had no BFP on the tests, I was almost sure when I saw brown spotting the day AF was due. For two days afterwards nothing happened (no bleeding or spotting). Then I ended up heavily bleeding bright red and mucus for 3 days. I would have been about 13-15 DPO at the time.
Because most of the symptoms went away the moment I started bleeding and I had cramps thought I miscarried. I was heavy, but only lasted 3 days (my AFs are around 5-7).
When I saw the gyno (two weeks later), he was concerned that my uterus felt large and a bit "fibery." The bloodtests he ordered resulted in normal hormone levels and negative pregancy for HGC levels. I had an ultrasound yesterday. The tech (who was a wonderfully kind woman) told me if I was still pregnant it'd be too early. She said that things looked healthy and normal from the outer scan. Then she asked me if I had spotted. When I told her yes--she asked when. Then she did an internal scan.
Thank goodness I've read previous posts here about it so I knew what to expect... Otherwise, I'd feel like I had been probed during an alien invasion.
My tech spent a lot of time on my right side. She was gentle and the exam didn't hurt but I've been sore since then. She then did another scan using the external on my right side.
So, here's the thing that spooks me. She wouldn't tell me what's up. I've had an external sonogram in the past and I was told it was normal right away. This tech told me that the radiologist had to look at the scans first before the results are released. This won't happen til early next week. I know this is standard procedures for radiology, but I'm really scared.
If I was "normal" or if she had found a healthy baby, she would have said so, right?Edit: Update below
