Did they ask you to have a full bladder or not ???

I read somewhere that you should have a full bladder for better pics....

I was loaded and hurting.....

But then they told me "No, we want you to have an empty bladder"....so I went and I don't think the pic is all that good....

I was told I don't need a full bladder for ANY ultrasound including my NT scan.

I have mine tomorrow. The note says FULL bladder, just like that! haha She made sure to really focus on the "fullness" when we were scheduling, too, so I'm guessing it's important to the results.

Honestly, I'm not so concerned about the test results. We'll take on whatever is thrown at us. I'm really excited to get to see the baby, though, and secretly praying that the images will be so clear that someone will make an educated guess on the gender!

My doctor didn't say we had to but i did read that i should. I had a big drink before i went but wasn't totally full, however the pictures were fairly blurry and it took some time to get the accurate neck measurements. Not sure if it was because of the half full bladder or not.

I didn't need one. I was slightly full from drinking water and they had me empty because the baby was curled up.

I thought the full bladder was for looking at your kidneys. They usually look at my kidney's and then have me go to the bathroom and then look at the baby.

I wonder if this is why my baby was curled up too. They wanted me to drink more water said it wasnt full enough.

I didn't have to have a full bladder. I had to empty it when I got there.
