WOW. I have never, not one single time in my first or current pregnancy, been told to drink extra fluids before an ultrasound. In fact, I am asked to give a urine sample before each appointment, so I go in empty!!
I mean good lord, at this point, if I wait too long to pee, I begin cramping and can be uncomfortable-even get contractions-for the rest of the day!!

That's craaaazy.

I have a pretty small bladder anyway, and I tend to drink a lot of water in general. At my 12 week u/s, the tech had to send me off the the bathroom TWICE to pee - all she could see was this giant dark looming bladder on the screen crowding everything else out

By the way, I read a tip on another thread here that in order to get the baby to move around a lot so they can take measurements and you can tell the gender, is to eat something sweet a little while before the u/s.

I did that for my first and he was bouncing around like crazy!

yes, but i fell a bit short of that amount i think. i peed 2 hours before going, then drank as much as i could, and then hoped there wasn't going to be much of a wait.
