You don't have to have a full bladder.. fortunately for me the baby had one and he was at attention for them to find out his sex.

Not necessarily, but it does make it easier to see. Good luck and let us know if you found out :)

You don't Have to but it is better if you do.. It's not hard to accomplish as while pregnant your bladder always feels full lol

You need a full bladder so they can look at your cervix nice and clear after they check that normally they let you empty then continue on with the rest of the ultrasound.

Or maybe it was the uterus and ovaries, I can't remember now but you do need a full bladder so they can get a clear look at something that's important lol

I went for mine at 18 weeks 6 and didn't need to have a full bladder. I have never been told I needed a full bladder for any of mine.

I've been told to have a full bladder at every one of my ultra sounds whether it was a vaginal sonogram or a regular one. I would go ahead and drink plenty of water.

At 6 & 13 weeks scan I had to have a full bladder to push bub forward but for the morphology scan, I've been told you don't need to have a full bladder you just need to be hydrated so that the amniotic fluid is clear for them to see through. By that stage bub is big enough to not be needed to be pushed forward :)
