Anybody else pee all the time, but then have a hard time doing it at the doc's office?
I'm not sure why, but I always have a hard time when I am there. I think it's probably that I am afraid to pee on my hand while trying to get it in the sample cup since I can't see what's going on down there anymore.
No troubles for me! On mornings of my appointment I try my best to hold my pee in until I get to the docs office because I know that they will want a sample! (I make early appointments!)
And in my docs office they have gloves for you to use when you pee in the cup! SO no worries there!

I have had that problem in the past. Now I make sure to stop using the bathroom at least 1 1/2 hours before my appointment and I drink a ton before I get there. Usually I'm sitting in the waiting room about to burst.
The only time I have trouble is when they want me to pee more than once. When I first get there I am good to go. But if they need a clean catch after my appointment (which for some reason they have done a billion on me this pregnancy) I have nothing to give. Last time I literally gave them a drip. It didn't even come close to covering the bottom of the specimen cup. To my surprise it was enough to test though.

No, I don't have any trouble, but this may be weird, it's completely optional to pee at my doctor's visits. I'm sure if I said I don't have to go at every single visit, they would make me, but otherwise, they just ask if I have to go and to leave them a specimen if I do. I have peed at almost every visit, though, because I do want them to have a sample to test.
Thank you Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for the wonderful siggy!
not at all! infact i walk in and go straight tot he bathroom.. at my dr appointment on monday though, I went in to pee, got the cup ad totally forgot touse it... i got up and looked and was like holy crap i forgot the cup! luckily for me they were running late so by the time i had to go back in the office i had to go again... so no one knew what i had done except my husband who could't stop laughing at me
My biggest gripe with my doctor's office right now is that their cups are TINY. Like literally 2 or 3 ozs. They're just little cheap plastic cups that you can buy in bulk but they're smaller/narrower than the Dixie cups some people use for mouthwash in their bathrooms! I haven't peed on myself yet but it's annoying... I tell my DH it's almost like peeing in a test tube!
I chugged 24 oz on the way to the appt this afternoon and was able to go just fine....then thought I was going to pee myself when the nurse checked the HB! Had to stop and pee on the way out (less than 30 minutes later) and went again when I walked in the door at home (15 minutes later).
Not since I hit 3rd trimester. All I do is pee now. I think I could easily pee at least an oz or 2 every 15 minutes no problem. I can't believe how much toilet tissue we use now. Everytime I stand up I have a big urge to pee.
