2nd trimester ultrasound

Is it sad that I'm really nervous for that? lol it's this Thursday morning and I'm scared that I'm gonna pee my pants! They said I have to drink 30 oz of water before the exam and I can't pee until it's over. Water always goes right through me so that's gonna be really hard! And of course I'm nervous just hoping that my LO is healthy and normal. So I'm kinda dreading it, BUT at least I get to see him again :)

don't worry, they only need you to have a full bladder for the first 5 or 10 minutes for the head measurements!  they saw how full i was and let me pee after 5 :)

Oh that is so good to know! I really hope they let me do that too haha I'd like to be able to actually enjoy watching the baby on the screen.

Haha I ended up peeing about 10 minutes before my ultrasound because I just couldnt hold it anymore.  I was drinking like a mad woman when I got there because I was waiting for them to be like "oh your not full enough go back to the waiting room and drink more" but the girl said something (I can't remember what exactly) about the position of my uterus and that they could easily see what they needed without me being ready to burst.

Right before I went in for my 20wk ultrasound the tech asked if I wanted to pee first. I wanted to  why I even bothered to drink all that water first but I was too anxious to see our little one!
