Hi,

I have always heard that a vaginal scan is necessary only during early pregnancy or when there is something to worry... yesterday I had my 20 weeks ultrasound and after the abdominal scan the sonographer also performed the vaginal scan. When I asked her if this is normal procedure or is it done because there's something worry, she told me that it's only a normal procedure that they follow and this was to make sure that my cervix has enough passage way for me to deliver the baby. After the exam she said that it's normal. Well, my little girl was very active and it was very difficult for them to take pictures :) Could it be because of this, that they chose to do a vaginal scan for me? Or could it be because I have post-placenta?Has anyone had this at 20 weeks as part of their regular ultrasound visit? Please help me out of this great confusion.. thanks a lot beforehand...
