Question: How much do you have to drink before your 12 week scan?

You will be asked to drink about two pints of water before the scan to fill up your bladder; this pushes up the uterus to give a clearer picture. Youll then have gel rubbed onto your belly and a hand-held scanner passed smoothly backwards and forwards over your skin.

How much water do you drink before a pregnancy ultrasound?

You can eat before your ultrasound. You are required to have a full bladder. It is necessary to drink 600-800ml of water two hours prior to the scan and refrain from going to the toilet before the scan.
