starfish, you should have been told how much to drink.  Did you not get an instruction sheet?

I'd call when they open tomorrow and ask.

At my first ultrasound I was told to pee to empty my bladder which was surprising to me because I thought I was supposed to have a full bladder and was freaking out because I hardly drank any water prior, idk maybe every Place does it differently, at recent ultrasounds I've never been told to have a full or empty bladder

I was told to start drinking a liter of water an hour an half before the ultrasound
