Do you need to take a pee sample to your scan?

    My husband asked yesterday if I had been given a tube for my pee, to take to our scan on 21st December.

    I didn't think I needed to take any, since they don't check your BP or anything like that; they just look at the baby. But now I don't remember if I had to give a sample at my 12 week scan.

    Someone please remind me...?

    Nope, I was asked to bring one to each appointment with the midwife, but not for the scans :)

    I didnt bring one to scan, and i didnt need to in the end, only midwife appts .. but if they need one you'll have a full enough bladder to go there im sure! x

    Depends, I had a scan and clinic appointment so I needed it. Rule of thumb, if you're going to see a midwife at any point, you'll need to pee in a bottle!

    I didn't for my 12 week scan, so didn't bother for my 20week, but after the scan the midwife checked bp and filled in notes etc and asked for my sample that I didn't bring! It wasn't a prob tho.
