  • You can drink anything you want and they do have you pee before they do the ultrasound

  • Ok sweety... if you are 18wks don't worry about the bathroom thing. 1pm is along time to have to wait. Go to the bathroom, drink fluids and an hour before go ahead and drink a bottle of water and don't go pee!! You should be fine... but you can always call the receptionist and ask them and they will find out from the nurse what you can do! So Call the doc or go pee!! GL at your u/s today!! Very exciting time today so RELAX and enjoy your day!!

  • babyclark is right. this is a big day and you need to relax. don't worry about all of this it will be fine. when i had the ultrasound to find out what it was i was soooo upset cuz my hubby couldnot be there, and then when i found out she was a girl (thats what we wanted) i smiled the whole way to his job and when i got out of the car he saw my smile and got tears in his eyes he didn't even have to ask. it was still a great day for both of us. so i hope you get what your wishing for

  • I just found out what i was having & i didn't drink a thing. My doc said they "suggest" filling up your bladder because it acts like a magnifying glass... To get a better pic but if you ask me if your bladder is full when they push around on it then thats uncomfortable so i wouldn't worry! Have fun! I thought i was having a girl but i was wrong! Good luck!
