    This might seem like a silly question, so forgive me in advance, but does that mean I get to see bubs again? Seeing as he's likely going to be there right near the kidneys anyway...I figure there's no way to get around it but I could be wrong!

    Any answers would be loved :thumbup: And again, sorry if it's a bit of a daft question :blush:

    Darn :haha: Thanks for replying :thumbup: Do you need a full bladder for a kidney scan when pregnant? I've had one before but that was when I was 10 and needed a full bladder then. Just wondered whether it might be different if you are pregnant xx

    I had one recently and my sonographer spent more time looking at the baby rather than my kidneys lol, he was enthusiatic and showed me stuff so i just guess it depends on the day, how busy they are what the sonographer is like etc but the baby will obvz be visable to them.

    I was told to drink 2 pints 2 hours before my apt for the kidney scan, I drunk about 1.5 pints instead and this was fine

    Good luck x
