Attended for emergency early scan due to suspected ectopic pregnancy. My appointment was 2.40 and I was seen by a nurse straight away for blood pressure and urine sample. Had to wait another hour for my actual scan but this partially to allow my bladder to refill. The sonographer was very good, I was obviously very worried but they immediately located the embryo sac, but stated they couldn't see in it so I needed a vaginal scan. They sent me to empty my bladder before completing the scan- showed me the screen once they had located embryo and heartbeat. I was a little hesitant about potentially having my baby here but after this experience I am much more reassured.
