If im taking a pregnany test at the doctors and pee some of my urine into the toilet then. Into the cup will the results screw up?
No prob: You may have been asked to provide a "mid-stream urine specimen" on a previous occasion, when the doctor was making sure you didn't have a bladder infection. This technique washes out the urethra from contamination and gives a more accurate answer. If you're checking for pregnancy, initial-, mid-, or late-stream urine doesn't matter; because the pregnancy hormone HCG is all mixed in there. ...Read more

I have an ultrasound tomorrow only, not meeting doctor or ob yet. My question is will I still have to pee in cup? And if so, what if I don't want to
Pregnancy: You will probably be asked for a urine sample. But unless the doctor has reason to be concerned about drug use, this will only be for urinalysis, not drug screen. Urinalysis tests for color, cells, sugar, blood, etc to make sure you're healthy beginning your pregnancy. These things can change as pregnancy progresses, so baseline measures are needed. ...Read more

My son is 4 months old. His doc told me to start feeding him. I'm trying to feed him pees but he won't eat it. Would it be fine if I put a lil surgar?
No sugar: I would not put sugar in the food. It's better for your son to get used to the way food tastes without the added sugar. Babies can be picky at first and sometimes you have to keep offering a food repeatedly before they learn to like the flavor. It's ok to try a different food for a while and then go back to peas. Eating food is new for him and you. Just give him time. ...Read more

Try this approach, and also consider tonsils and snoring as signs of sleep disturbance. Good luck. ...Read more
