12 Week Scan


I went to the toilet when I got up in the morning then decided I wasn't going to go again until after the scan at 11:40am. BIG MISTAKE. I have never been so close to peeing myself in my ENTIRE life! I was almost crippled by the time I got to the Maternity building. After waiting fifteen minutes I begged the receptionist to let me go to the toilet but she assured me that I was probably next and urged me to hold on.

Eventually my name was called and it was my turn to go through. The cold jelly on my belly had me wishing I had taken spare knickers with me! The first thing we could see on the screen was my massive, swollen bladder and the midwife said it was three times the size it needed to be. Luckily I was allowed to go to the toilet before we went any further and I got an amazing view of my baby after that.

So the moral of the story is don't be silly like me and deny yourself the toilet for the entire morning! Your bladder doesn't NEED to be that full.

Totally agree with this advice, at my 8 week scan I couldn't concentrate because I thought I was going to pee myself. The appt was 15 minutes late too which didn't help, I went up to the receptionist and said 'I'm sorry but I'm going to have to ruin the ultrasound because I can't hold on any longer'. Like in mrstoast's story, the receptionist urged me to hold on as I was next, and it was all fine but now I feel guilty because it wasn't the beautiful moment that it should have been where I first saw my baby as I was too busting to concentrate!

Aw that's a shame nzjade, at least I was able to go before she properly started the scan. Will you have another scan around 12 weeks? x

When I went to PP (after the OB's office messed up my daughter's first U/S) I had a big glass of tea before (maybe 2). They were running behind when I got there. I REALLY had to go, so after I waited awhile I went and asked how long it would be and was told just 2 minutes. 15 minutes later I said forget this and went and let some out. I ended up having to do that twice the the tech STILL told me my bladder was too full.
