Had my first scan today and now lower abdomen aches. Did anyone else experience this?

I did last week at my scan, I was 13 weeks and sonic ripper struggled to get measurements to do nulchal. She got me to move a few times, go to thd loo, go fit a walk etc the scan in total took about 45 mins so guessed it was just from such a long time. Never had it before fingers crossed x

No, I didn't experience this - was the sonographer particularly rough?!

Was it an internal scan?

I had a sore abdomen after my 20 week scan because she was so rough and dug the machine in too hard and its been quite a sensitive area throughout my pregnancy. It didn't ache for very long but was still a bit uncomfortable the next morning.

It was an external scan. I think I might have been quite tense as I was nervous. Sort of aches like when you have a really full bladder!!

After my12 week scan I felt achy for a few days. Since then I've had stretching pains for about a week or so, so not sure whether the initial aches were from the scan or just the start of the stretching. Either way they've stopped now, less than 2 weeks on, and all that stretching has produced the beginning of a teeny bump!

I had a bit of a sore belly after 20 week scan in lower abdomen. Went away the next day, was definitely where sonographer had been pressing down.
