This is my story;
For my 20 wk they said to come in with a full bladder. they didnt specify anything else they just said full bladder. So i wake up that morning empty my bladder then drink one oooohhhh lets say 15 oz glass of water. by the time I get to the doc 1 hour later i start to feel that limit of bein able to hold it. Now I have never waited at this doctors office for more that 5 min. So I was like, "okay, cool I can do this." They get me into the room pretty quick as my bladder starts to yell at me, and tell me to undress and the Doc will be right in. Okay....... 10 minutes later......15 minutes later ("hunny can you go find a nurse and tell them they have a pregnant woman in here about to burst and that its very mean of them *bottem lip quivers* to keep me waiting like this, PLEASE." Nurse takes 2-3 horribly long minutes to asses the situation and find my doc. "She'll be right in Miss, she is stlll with another aptient. Im so sorry." Me: "......Okay....*insert tinkle wiggle here*" 5 min later Doc comes in, "Im so sorry to keep you waiting darlin, are you Okay?" "Yeeeeahhh" Doc, "do you think you just wanna let a little out so its not so bad?" me: "uh there is no such thing as lettin a lil out right now" Her, "Alright lets get this over with then." I lay down, Me: "oh my god" Doc puts jelly then the wand on my tummy. I can tell shes tryin not to push to hard but OH MY FREAGIN GOSH! "Yup thats your completley full bladder squishin the baby's head,......you know i dont know why they tell you to fill your bladder up, it dosnt ever help.....Hunny do you want to go empty your bladder? I dont see any reason why not to." Me; "oh my god yes please!"
Run to the bathroom, do the deed, and have a seamless ultrasound right after.
Ironically thats the day when I started having to run to the potty every 15 minutes.
Thanks stupid come with your bladder full rule.....
Just drink a glass of water before. You'll be fine.
