Alert!

I just needed to say, I hate, hate, HATE having to pee in a cup!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had my second appointment today at 4pm, and I had to pee around 2:30pm. I figured I'd go, then drink a bunch of fluids, then be fine, right? After all, pregnant ladies have to pee constantly, right?

Yeah, well, my fluid intake plan was FOILED by vomiting twice in the 1 1/2 hours before my appointment. It was bad enough that I had to sit there for, like, 10 minutes working really hard to pee, but then I was horrible at aiming... grrrrrr....

Okay, sorry, just had to share with somebody, and DH is SO not interested .

Your not the only one. I absolutely hate having to pee in a cup every time. When its the third trimester and my belly is massive it is just a disaster. I dropped the cup once!

I hate it too! Plus, at my birthing center...you write your name on the cup and then leave it in the little window but there is never anyone in the lab, so I'm always paranoid someone will go in to pee and see my cup. LOL

At my old OB someone was always waiting on the other side of the little window to take your cup.

When I went to the lab to do my confirmation test, I went stick my cup in the little window and their were 3 other pee cups in there..

I hate peeing in a cup, but I got better at it while we were ttc because I was using the dip strip ovulation tests..

I always end up peeing on my hand... LOL I think they should put a catch bowl in there (like a paper one) that way you just pee, then funnel it into your cup.

LOL! I have gotten to be a pro at the PIAC thing...I have had to do it for much of my life with bladder/kidney infections. It sucks, but you get used to it, it does get a lot harder towards the end when your belly is HUGE

no matter how bad I have to pee when it comes to peeing in a cup I seem to get stage fright. It always takes me forever to pee.

YES!!!!! This is so me!!!!!! And I've always thought that peeing in a cup during the third trimester is a primitive form of torture...

LMAO! I'm glad you posted this! I had to do a clean catch at my first appt and I ended up peeing on my hand and then got like an eighth of an inch of pee in the bottom of the cup! The nurse looked at me like I was retarded or something, like no one else had ever peed so little before!

And at my doctor's office, there's no window to put it in! You have to carry it down the hall to where they test the pee. I always wrap a paper towel around it so I'm not just showing my pee off to everyone I pass! When I got my IUD out in August, the cup somehow slipped as I was sitting it down and a couple drops splashed out. I was MORTIFIED!!!!! I swear a drop got on the nurse, but she said she didn't even see it. I think she was just trying to make me feel better bc I was so embarrassed.

Needless to say, I HATE PIAC!
