Does anyone else have a hard time already??? The specimen cups are so small, I feel like I may as well be peeing into a test tube. Then I end up with pee all over the cup, all over my hand... And I remember being PG with my son it got worse as I got bigger, b/c then I couldn't see and I just had to hope I didn't pee all over my hand and miss the cup completely.

I feel bad for the nurse that has to pick up the cup after I peed all over it. I mean... I wipe it off... but geez.

Ouch, that sucks!!!

Ours have larger openings, so it's easier, and the nurse gives ME the test strips and chart to compare it to, so I get to pee, dip the strip, empty the cup and chuck it, compare, and then chuck the strip and let her know the results

lmbo!! Okay this reminded me of a bad experience I had as a child and since we're over-sharing...here goes:

I went on a fishing trip with my grandpa when I was about 7 or 8...i needed to pee really bad so he pulled up along a bank and told me to go back a little ways and do the squat and pee thing (im from the country, this is normal...lol) So I did...only I guess I wasn't leaning back far enough and I totally peed ALLLL over my pants...I was soooo embarressed to get back in the boat w/ my grandpa...I didnt get to hang w/ him that much and I always really looked up to him, so it was totally ackwaaarrrd!! He didnt make me feel bad tho, and he even let me drive the boat up on the trailer when we made it back to the docks...but yeaaaa, I learned my lesson that day on the right/wrong way to do the squat and pee method...Perfect stance ever since! Oh yeaaa!!

I got lectured for there being too many skin cells at my last sample because I did that. PFFFFFT.

I have issues peeing in that cup while I'm not pregnant. I lean forward to see and then the stream changes...it's just really unpleasant. At the hospital I go to you put the cup in a ziploc bag thing and then drop it off. When they take it out they use gloves...but still, I would *not* want that to be my job!

I haven't had the pleasure of that lecture yet... I always use one of those wipey thingys though, even if it's not for a sterile sample. Maybe that gets dead skin cells off? Or maybe they fear the wrath of Redneck Mommy, they are too afraid to fuss about skin cells! Lol. Who knows?

So do I! Maybe they were just being annoying that day, lol. And that's true, you aren't someone to mess with....I'm too nice. I need to work on that vibe.

4 out of my last 5 samples have come back "contaminated". I was peeing in a cup twice a week for a while. I think they gave up on me.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one. This is my least favorite part of every appointment.

LOL, this thread! It is a comfort though to hear that I am not the only one! Who would have thought that peeing in a cup would be so difficult?
