It's hard to pee under pressure!

FYI this story is about Pee. May not be appropriate for small children :)

This morning at work my co-workers and I had to go do a drug test so that we could drive the University van. I was second to go and I thought I had it in me but I couldn't reach the little line they draw on the cup. So they told me I could have 8 cups of water and then when I was ready try again. Well everyone went and finished their tests and I am chugging freezing cold water in the waiting room. 25 min later I decide to try again... NOTHING couldn't go at all. My boss had a meeting to get back to so I came out and told the lady I would have to come back another day. Apparently that is against the rules. I was not allowed to leave until I peed enough. It was back to 8 more cups of water. Now the pressure was building because we were on a time crunch. I was trying to drink as much water as possible but at one point I felt like I might throw it all up. I started jogging around the waiting room and doing jumping jacks ( yeah I looked totally normal doing this; no one was staring at me). 3rd time is the charm they say; after a little while I tried again. When I came out and proclaimed to my co-workers that I peed! They all started cheering and clapping. I am pretty sure the staff thought we were all nuts. We were there for over 2 hours in all and made it back just in time for the meeting. In the hour and half I have been back at work I have peed 5 times. What a morning! I don't have to take another test for a year but you can bet I am drinking a ton of water an hour before we go. I am not going to fold under pressure next time.

I totally understand where you're coming from! At every prenatal visit they ask for a urine sample, even though I know it's coming, it's still difficult!

Hehe. Yeah, I had to get my drugscreen and dropped the cup in the toilet! Also against the rules. Had to come back 2 days later because next day wasn't aloud either. Can't they just draw your blood or something?!

We're officially closer than ever now.

Lol! Wait till you're preggers and have to do it all the time. You'll get it down to an art.
