Today, I have to get an ultrasound at the hospital. In order to get a clear picture, I need to have a full bladder. I've been waiting my turn for 2 hours now, desperately needing to pee. There are still multiple patients ahead of me. FML

Omg! I did this same test twice. It is pure torture! One time I ended up pulling over halfway to the test and running to some bushes to pee because I couldn't hold it any longer.

They make you pee right before the ultrasound, it keeps the baby high up, pee if you want but good look getting a clear picture of your baby.

If I were OP I would've just gone ahead and peed. If I were there for two hours I'd be drinking a bottle of water so that way when it's my turn, I'd be ready instead of torturing myself.

60- my first thought was that it was a bladder US because nowhere does the FML mention it being for a baby. Plus, i dont think they require a full bladder for the baby US.

Dang it, i hate how you cant edit on the windows phone app. Anyway, just wanted to add that ive never been pregnant so i dont know the requirements for a baby US. just wanted to add that

I recently had to get an ultrasound too, and since I'm not pregnant, I had to have a full bladder too. You absolutely cannot go pee in the 2 hours before your appointment because your bladder won't be full enough. Unless your doctor tells you to drink the same amount as someone 30-50 lbs heavier than you, which mine did. My bladder was too full and I had to just pee "just a little" so she could see my uterus. :/

when i had my ultrasounds you needed a full bladder for the 9 week baby scan and an empty for the 20 week one. i cant remember what for the pre surgical one but i do remember having to be 'ahem' flushed out since it was abdominal surgery.

I had to do the same thing and the ultrasound person said my bladder was too full and I had to let some out but I just couldn't stop, was not the most fun experience.

60 she didn't say it was because she was pregnant. I had to get an ultra sound on my uterus and all that when I went on the pill, it could be for anything.

If she has to have a full bladder, she probably not pregnant. If so, they thankfully don't put it on your bladder, just below your belly button.

your bladder needs to be full for the 9 week scan (first scan in uk) well as far as i remember anyway. might be the other way around and its full for 20 week.

@78 as u see from the others it could be that she is pregnant; however as a guy i had to have this test done with a full bladder when they were checking for kidney stones/other bladder problems when i was younger.

An internal ultrasound isn't that bad .. And it's better than running the risk of having your bladder too full to pee:/ I'd rather go then hold it

internal ultrasounds are hellish. mind you i did have stitches in thst area at the time. personally i would rather deal with the full bladder. alao men get ultrasounds for stuff too. canit imagine they xan get an internal ultrasound, not without extreme discomfort anyway.
