I had a scan at 5+4 and when i went in and had it the sonographer told me my bladder was TOO FULL!! lol i was like ffs, make up your minds, first you want it full now it's too full, then i was told to go and 'Half empty' my bladder.
It was so difficult to be bursting for a pee and stop it half way through!! lol
LOL as long as your bladder is full that's all you need. You should know what fills you how quickly hehe. I can drink 600mL and 15mins later that's it - FULL. Between now and then, experiment and find your threshold
when i had my scan i drunk a bottle of water a big one and i was still drinking water about 15mins before my scan i dont think it matters as long as it is full when i was there they even gave me a glass of water so obv an hour before is just do it gets in to your bladder it is horrible i had to cross my legs while they where doing the scan and i could get up cause i fort i was gunna wet my self my mum had to pull me of the bed but with your 20 week scan your bladder dont have to be full i went with a full bladder and there was a sign sayin 20+ week scan dont need a full bladder i was like WTF? haha xx
Ohh thats a good question, im only 6 weeks at the mo and I would find it hard to hold it for an hour right now lol!
Btw, all the best people are born on October 15th haha
Ill let my mum know that, its her birthday
As for the water the hour isnt realy that important, when I went foe mine last time all i had to do was drink a couple of plastic cups of water just before going in.
be warned if you drink it cold you will have a bouncy scan picture but it helps if they need the baby to roll over a bit
