but when you pee to do a dipstick preg test, what do you pee into?

KemalsStilletto Wed 03-Aug-05 10:49:42

....the reason I ask is because I can't find anything!

Um, the loo? Where else!

Janbo25 Wed 03-Aug-05 10:50:48

a medicine bottle or tablet bottle, or if the midwife is coming you can wee direct onto the stick

whatever you use, make sure it is sterile as it could effect the result.

disposable plastic cup

But if it's a pregnancy test don't you just hold it in the, um, stream?

Why can't you wee onto the stick?

ilovehorses Wed 03-Aug-05 10:51:31

? don't you have the strip bit to wee onto as that is easy to do, or maybe a small cleaned out yoghurt pot/tupperware dish. Do you think you are pregnant KemalsStilletto??

wash out an old jam jar?

acnebride Wed 03-Aug-05 10:51:59

IIRC i think the test had a little pot included. V small though so not much help

Yogurt pot? watering can??

Or if your GP surgery is near you could ask them for a sample pot?

i just use an old egg cup and keep it in the bathroom out of the way so no one uses it for eggs. It doesnt have to be sterile as long as its clean it'll be fine.

geekgrrl Wed 03-Aug-05 10:57:04

a glass, mug or small jug? (we do have a dishwasher)

I can see no mumsnetters will want to come over to geekgrrl's for a cuppa now!

mmm nice!

KemalsStilletto Wed 03-Aug-05 11:10:41

In the test I have its a disptick on where u have to wee in something first then leave the test in the wee for a few seconds. was only a quid!

I'm not too sure if I'm pregnant, hence the test, but was a little too rampant during intercourse and condom spilt and neither dp or I realised til the deed was done!

KemalsStilletto Wed 03-Aug-05 11:11:12

gonna get an eggcup! tx for all ur replies

ElliesMad Wed 03-Aug-05 13:01:05

HI where did you get that test. £1!!!! I'd go for a disposable plastic cup.
Aren't we women lucky!!!

Easy Wed 03-Aug-05 13:11:18

A well washed yoghourt pot

Janbo25 Wed 03-Aug-05 13:14:37

KemalsStilletto Wed 03-Aug-05 13:16:25

Janbo25 Wed 03-Aug-05 13:17:55

When I found out I was expecting dd I took my sample in a schwartz spice jar!! She now loves spicy food maybe there is a connection!
