    Nuchal Scan veterans?

    Hi Girls! I am going in for my ultrascreen on Friday (nuchal) and wanted to know if I should expect an internal u/s or external? I haven't had an external one yet but thought maybe I would this time since I'll be 12w5d?

    Hi Erin,
    Mine was external. Just note that the week before I had a scan internally and it was much clearer than the external. But I think it's been a while for you so you will LOVE what you see!!!

    What happened with the insurance for Tay Sachs? I hope you fight them on it - that's ridiculous!!!

    Have fun seeing your beautiful baby bean!!!

    Yay! I am happy it'll be external. I have to go to another office and to be honest I am just tired of spreading my legs for every Tom, **** and Harry (omg, lol, pardon the pun!!!! )

    Flea, I am just going on with the Tay Sachs, God forbid we are carriers. I don't even care if it's covered, but from the response of Floyd (yes, Floyd) I am sure that it is. What a moron!

    I know this is late...you've probably been through it..I was the lucky one who had it internal. Baby and I weren't cooperating enough (baby was too far back and I had air in my bowels)

    Hopefully I'm the only one that reverted back to transvaginals!
