    Hello all,

    I have my 20 week scan tomorrow :happydance:. Do I need to drink water before the scan?

    I had a letter from the hospital for my 12 week scan advising me that I had to drink a pint of water but not had a letter through this time.

    Thanks :)

    i was the same...didnt get a letter saying i had to drink water, but when i got there i wanted to go for a pee and they told me not to!! it does no harm to drink water before, but at the same time, it's not totally neccessary i dont think

    good luck, hope you have a brilliant day tomorrow x x

    i didnt get told to with Riley, but i did anyway but he wasnt in the right position so i had to go back after a walk, and i had a wee in the mean time and the scan was deffinitely much clearer with a full bladder! i also ate a mars bar before because i was told it made baby more active. and he certainly was!
    good luck!!! x

    Good luck with your scan tomorrow.

    I didn't drink as much water with my scan at 17 weeks as I did with the one at 12 weeks and got very clear pictures.
