Empty stomach not required. However the doctor may ask for a full bladder to get a clearer image.

Hey..Al the best and enjoy

Varsha

Lots of best wishes Shilpa, as suggested by other moms, no need to be empty stomach, if scan will be taken from stomach.
In some cases, if they opt to take scan from vagina, they will ask you to urinate first.
In scan room mostly you can also view the screen, if not than request the person doing the scan (sonographer) to show you too.
What is mostly visible at this scan is - fetus yolk sac, heartbeat and fetal pole. U can ask about the same to sonographer.
And you will get pics of your  scan too :)

Is it always necessary to have a vaginal ultrasound or stomach one is better?

Varsha

Puja in start of pregnancy, vaginal u/s are taken as stomach one don't show the clear pic of fetus. As baby develops that's after 8-10weeks they take stomach u/s.
Later in Pregnancy they can take again vaginal scan to see the cervic length.

Radha priya

no vaginal is nt necessary  at all... its actually  a special.. i gi through vaginal scan for tge doubt of cyst
