I've had that ultrasound too. I came in with a full bladder, and they did an ultrasound of my pelvis. The full bladder is to raise your organs so they can see them better. Then they had me go pee and they did a transvaginal ultrasound. They do need to do that with an empty bladder. They put a little camera in your vagina and look around. It's like a pelvic exam--uncomfortable, but nothing compared to what you've been through. I hope they can find something and help you feel better! Hugs!
