Seriously though, what do they do with it? I don't remember having to pee in a cup at every visit with my last ob. Also I find it weird to walk around holding my cup of pee,eew lol.

Umm, I wonder the same thing, and feel exactly the same way about carrying around a (clear, mind you) cup of my own pee. I thought about buying some small paper bags to hide it in lol

I've seen one place put gauze in the cup to absorb the pee, then into the bio trash it goes. Not sure if that's a standard move.

My imagination went wild on this one.. like they're using it to fuel smelly science experiment vehicles or like, have a witches cauldron they drop it into to cast spells on people.

I have to pee in a cup every time, too - but they have a TRAP DOOR WINDOW in the john.

They check for protiens/sugars in your urine. I think for preeclampsia? It's just a small testing strip, like a pregnancy test.

With this new office, I actually peed and brought my urine to the room with me and she checked it there then poured it down the drain. I've been to offices with the cool trap door too.

I have to pee in a cup everytime to but I take it back to the exam room with me and they test it right in front of my for sugar (I think) and proteins. After that I don't know what they do with it.

I never thought of that!!! hmmmmm.....

When I had my first 2 babies, they would give you the cup at your appointment to take home and use before your next appointment. You just did your sample at home brought it in in the little brown bag LOL

Yep, they run the same test every time. For protein and sugar, and some other stuff like nitrates (what your body is processing for waste). They are able to tell if you are hydrated enough and getting the right nutrition, fighting an infection or something more serious, all from a little pee
