sorry Misdee, must have missed this one. Why is she having these scans (if you don't mind me asking?)

Best of luck anyway

they are checking for signs of tuberous sclerosis as she was born with skin tags. apparently it can show up on kidney and bladder scans somehow. no idea why. not too bothered atm, as i have loads of skin tags, admittidly i wasnt born with them, but hey.

PMSL - excuse the pun! All i can suggest is a feed just before you go in!

rofl dd had scans and xrays at 4 months following a UTI. Hopefully they will be flexible enough time wise that you can just snuck in a feed about 15 minutes beforehand an that will do the trick. Otherwise, if it is similar to dd's, they can feed a tube into her bladder and fill it that way as sometimes they need to put a dye in so that it shows up clearly on the scans, then they wait for her to wee and monitor where it flows.
