How safe is transvaginal ultrasound during pregnancy?

In brief: Pretty Safe

Assuming that the membranes are intact (water not broken), there should be no significant risks.
In the case of ruptured membranes the same precautions should be used as for an internal exam. Labial prep and sterile probe cover.
