I have a question: When I went for my first sonogram, I was first of all excited to find out the sex (It's a BOY!), but mainly just wanted to see if everything was okay. Everything was fine except the lady said she couldn't see my cervix. Then she said "You have a full bladder, right?" and I said "Yes, I drank 24 oz of fluids before I came like I was instructed." Why do they tell you to drink a lot of fluid before you get a sonogram? And why do they want you to do it if they won't be able to see the cervix? Does it happen to all you new moms?
