Question about bowel movement samples for doctor?! (TMI)

My baby is 5 weeks old and has been having dark green mucousy bowel movements (still seedy though)
I took her to the doctor Tuesday and she had a few specks of blood in her BM they wanted to test it, but there wasn't enough in the diaper. They sent me home with 3 containers for 3 different tests. I am having SO much trouble filling the containers up to the line it needs to be filled to.

What can I do?? I have tried everything from saran wrap and turning diaper inside out. It just turns into a disaster.

Also, how long are the samples even "good" for? I have two containers nearly full and the last one isn't even 1/4 full...who knows when I'll be able to turn them into the lab!
