    Hi Rachel

    nothing to worry about   it is just an ultrasound of your pelvis.  I have had quite a few!  They may want to do a trans vaginal also which involves a probe inside your vagina but you don't have to have that one if you prefer not to!

    Good luck x

    Rachel, that would be an ultrasound of your pelvis, I would think external. They probably want your bladder to be full so they can get a better look.

    Hi, yes that's external. I am having one tomorrow (on abdomen) too and dreading waiting with 2pints of water in my tummy . I tend to go to toilet a lot in these days. I don't know how I will cope with it. Good luck tomorrow
