    I had an internal the last pregnancy, I wasn't as early though. I didn't want to read and run. It's nothing to be too worried about, a bit uncomfortable but it's fine.

    I'm bleeding as well :( I had one when based on my lmp i would have been 6 weeks (friday) but they think i'm earlier than expected or i'm having an ectopic because they couldnt see anything.

    I had one in my last pregnancy where it didn't hurt (its quite big but they put lube on it) but this time they had a good look at my ovaries and it was a bit painful. Its worth it to know whats going on in there though :)

    If they can't see anything, theyll do blood tests to check/monitor your hcg levels.

    Hope you're ok xxx

    I had an internal scan a few times they're not too bad I don't think. And you will most probably just see a sac I'm surprised they're scanning you this early as its too early for a heartbeat so you will just have to go back anyway xx

    I had an internal scan last week, I was 5wks and 4 days. There was black circle with a little dot in it which was the beginning of the yolk sac. It is very early so don't be disheartened if you don't see anything. I had my scan that early to rule out ectopic x

    I thought when i went for my scan on friday that id have a difinitive answer of what was happening and i still don't and i still probably wont tomorrow. I agree, dont feel disheartened if they don't see anything and you have to bloods and then have them taken again 2 days later xxx

    In January I had a suspected ectopic I was 4-5 weeks and they just saw a sac they said to me they only scanned to see if it was in the right place or not. I think an early scan will cause more worry for you if they don't see anything. I do hope you see something though xxx

    I had 2 early scans. First one when I was 5 weeks 2 days to check from ectopic.
    I seen the sac an was happy that I wasn't having an ectopic..
    They brought me back 2 weeks later an I seen the little heart beat.
    I felt content after the second scan knowing that things where goin to plan as I was/still am worried of loosing my little bump..
    Hope ur scan goes well xx
