A gestational sac: At 5 weeks but no reason to do us that early unless the doc is worried that something is abnormal, better to do one at 7 weeks as by then can see the htbeat.

Full bladder: Expect to be asked to arrive with a full bladder. You will lie on an exam table. Gel will be applied to your lower abdomen and then the ultrasound probe will be applied to the gel covered area to carry out the scan. Most uncomfortable part might be holding in the urine! enjoy the show! ask questions!
