|It depends on equipment, but moslty just standard protocol of the reading Dr. If they want to measure her cervical length, and don't want to fo a transvaginal (which is usualy unnecessary by 17 weeks) then her bladder needs to be pretty full. I would say 24 -30 oz should be enough though.|

I had an ultrasound back in 2000 with my first at around 20 weeks and they had me drink about 60 gallons and I was almost peeing my pants. I am trying to make it as least painful for me as possible.
