Internal scan at 20 wks?

Hello there
I had a scan today at just over 16 weeks and the consultant said that when I come at 20 weeks for anomaly scan they will do an internal scan as well to see something to do with how easy the birth will be? Or I could well have got that bit wrong as there was so much to take in? Is this usual practice and what are they actually looking for/at?
Thank you!

Hi DD,

Glad your scan went well, and everything is fine.
I have internal scan every time i go for normal scan as they would like to keep an eye on the lenth of the cervix, i do not know if this is the case with you but it sounds like they are taking good care of you.

Good luck

Hello lovely!

I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to see that today's scan was all good! Such great news!

I don't really know about the internal scan at 20 weeks - certainly didn't have one with either of mine! And I haven't heard from friends that they had one at that stage either.

Best bet is to phone your midwife tomorrow and ask her to explain!

I live in the U.S. but my office is going to do an internal and external at my 20 week appt. I asked why and they said it was to get a good measurement of my cervix and is very normal to do.

Thanks ladies!
Dream2bmum and Eli - I think maybe that is why they are doing it - I seem to remember him saying something about the cervix, it's probably because of my m/c history too to be on safe side. I am seeing miscarriage consultant tomorrow so will ask her about it. I don't know if i have a midwife as such so don't really have anyone else to ask!

Saw consultant yesterday and asked about this - you were totally right, it's to measure length of cervix which can give an indication of whether you are more likely to be premature. Apparetnly shorter cervix can mean there is more of a chance of this. Its becoming more routine now at 20 weeks but lots of women won't have it because they don't like the idea of an internal scan. Me - I'm an old pal of dildo-cam so it doesn't bother me!
Thanks for everyone's help
