    i always take a paper cup with me and then put it into the tube... I've always struggled with this, being pregnant or not!!! lol...

    Why can't they make them bigger dammit?

    I could have written this!!
    Yes, I struggle too. Then I can never seem to go for a pee when I am about to leave for the appointment, and what I do do never ends up in that silly tube!

    How bizarre! I posted this as my facebook status about an hour ago!! It's so frustrating! I can never do it whether I have a bump or not and normally end up peeing all over the outside of the tube and getting nothing inside!!!:wacko:

    I also "go" in a bigger (clean) container and then poor into the specimen cup. I've always struggled with this and have a long way to go with a bigger bump! Men have it so EASY when it comes to urine samples!

    Luckily my nurse always puts a container in the toilet and tests from that, so I don't have to use the specimen cup... but one day I had a different nurse that made me use the cup and I felt like such a loser! I couldn't see anything... and of course it was the one time I only had to pee a little bit.... I only got a few drops in the cup and my self esteem suffered BIG TIME! :blush:

    You get these disposable things that insert into the loo, and you then take it to the midwife-I think thats whats been talked about here, as i used to do it like this in my first pregnancy

    At my hospital all the loos are the same. Inside the loo there is like a little shelf where the cardboard container goes and then it catches the urine so you don't have to use a cup... why they created these loos and THEN give pregnant women the 'tube' I will never know xx

    Gosh, I had this problem too at my MW appt on Wed!!! I totally missed and managed about 3mm of pee!! She said that was enough to check, but next time might have to use the cup method :)

    I've never tried to do it directly into the tube, I always do it into a larger container then pour it into the tube. OMG I'd be in a right mess with just a tube lol

    I've been given a cardboard kind of container with a lip on it to hold while you wee into it at the hospital hut I've always held that 'in the flow' & hoped for the best lol. Oh the joys, eh!! X
