Sara0405, I had a transv____al u/s done at 7w1d and the u/s tech actually had me empty my bladder before she started. I cannot tell you that for sure you should have an empty bladder, but I know that I had to. Good Luck!

no...you don't need to have a full bladder for transv____al, just for ones done externally on your stomach. good luck with your u/s!

Hi. I'm an Ultrasound tech and for v____al ultrasound usually we need u to empty ur bladder completely. For pelvic or abdominal u/s we need u to have a full bladder. Hope this settles it.

for a transv____al you don't need to have full bladder. For a normal u/s you do if you are in the 1st trimester (maybe for the first part of the 2nd tri too not sure). I do know however, that my doc and u/s tech wanted a full bladder at my 19w u/s, not b/c they need it to be full to view the baby (which is the reason they need a full bladder earlier on in a pregnancy), but they needed it to be full in order to look at the cervix.
