Wondering if anyone else has had to do this before? They told me that I have to collect ALL of my pee into this jug and if I miss any I hve to dump it out and start over. BUT what they didnt tell me is what I am to do if I FILL the jug before my 24 hrs is up??? I only have about maybe 1 or 2 more times of having ot pee before the jug is full and I have 5 more hours!
Oh no! I've never done it so have no idea really. It would seem like it's important to collect all output in the time period though. Got any empty milk jugs you can wash out?
IDK, hope someone can help. :/
I remember being at the lab once and someone came in to request another jug because they were going to be more than full. I'd collect the extra urine in another washed container. Or see if you can get another sterile one.
I called and after being passed through multple people on the phone they wanted me to "run back to the hosptial and grab another one" because if I missed ANY I had to start over. new dilemma: I had to pee THEN. not after an hr+ drive there and back... (where I live you don't just run into the hospital....it's 30 mins away IF there is no traffic etc (and this was prime school bus time) so after explaining I did not have the ability at the moment to jsut drop in... they suggested that I could go to the dr office and pick one up . (the dr office that is 2 streets over from the hospital) again. this didnt work. I had a deadline for gettng DS dropped off at daycare and getting my sub plans to school and I had to PEE. So I sat on facebook and talked with a friend who is a nurse at a dr office here in town ( 5 mins away) to see if they had any jugs at their office. She said they didnt but the new local diagnostic center should- as someone contacted them the toher day for one. SO I used a ziploc bag to collect in and then called them when they opened (at 8--granted my jug was ful at 5am) and thankfully they had them there so I didnt have to make the drive AGAIN to the hospital. Im hoping that everything comes out ok bc if not Im afraid they will induce me now--and Im not ready. The nurse at the diagnostic center said that her daughter had the same problem and they took her baby at 36 weeks.... which I hit today. prayers for good results!
on another note my principal is doing my end of year eval toniht so if Im there tomorrow we can meet and that be done with. so Ill know if Im tenured!
Yikes! So crazy strict. Why they think people can just "come on down to the hospital" at a moments notice is beyond me. Like, we don't have lives, we just sit around and pee in a jug for 24 hours with nothing else to do.
Wow! I would have just peed in a clean cup and then gone to get a new bucket. I mean, really, don't you pee in a cup before you dump it into the big container anyways?
Induce at 36 weeks? really? That's like recipe for a preemie, is it not? I would hope they'd try to control the pre-e first before they take the baby.
