Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body.

Having my first vaginal ultrasound with my first child will it hurt will they show me my baby? What do they do during it

New baby: To evaluate the baby they will want to put a probe in the vagina. This should not be more uncomfortable than any routine pelvic exam by a doctor. If the baby is large enough to see I would expect they would share the image with you. Usually mothers get a copy of a picture of the ultrasound. There is no risk to the baby as they use only sound waves. ...Read more

What can I expect for my first vaginal ultrasound? What will they do? Is it more uncomfortable or painful? How can I relax

Not painful.: It should not hurt, unless there is a painful problem already. The most discomfort comes from having the full bladder necessary for the procedure. The device is a little larger than a tampon, and feels the same. Just as when inserting a tampon, relaxing the vaginal muscles makes it painless. See more here, http://www. Insideradiology. Com.
