Ive been asked to do a 24 hour sample and been given a bottle to do it in.
My mum is insistant I'll fill it , enough to make the midwife give me TWO bottles! Each one is 2 litres!
So far Ive been doing my test since 9am this morning (had to wait to start due to the lab being shut over the weekend) and theres not much in the bottle at all! So how much is 'normal'? Is it possible to fill a 2 litre bottle in one day or is my mother actually crazy (which I suspect is the answer )?!
Don't worry too much about the volume you produce, just make sure you complete a full 24hrs. (it is definitely prudent to have more than one bottle available though; you'll be surprised how much you wee!)
It gets to be a bit much when they have to send for a porter to bring a trolley with your wee on it but yes get a full 24 hours. And just so you know, once they measure it all and test it with dipsticks, they pour it all down the drain and there is a guy in the path lab who will be doing that all morning with various people's wee - what a fab job
