does this effect your ultrasound?

i had a pelvic ultrasound a lil over a month ago and i had to drink lots and lots of water. i was wondering if you was pregnant would all the water effect seeing the baby or hearing a heartbeat in the ultrasound?

  • most of the time when your not fal enough along they ask you to have a full bladder b/c it acts like a "window" into your uterus. once you get further along they ask you to have an empty bladder...and no it doesnt effect hearing the heartbeat...

  • They want you to drink water beforehand because it helps them see the baby better. However, if it is a transvaginal ultrasound, they will ask you to empty your bladder first.
