This will be a descriptive study measuring the post—void residual of patients in the third trimester and postpartum. Also, bladder scan values will be compared to the amount of urine obtained from a Foley catheter to determine the accuracy of the bladder scanner in the third trimester and postpartum.
||Time Perspective: Prospective
||Assessment of Third Trimester Post-void Residual Along With Determining Validity of the Bladder Scanner in the Third Trimester of Pregnancy and Postpartum
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Define normal post-void residual volume in third trimester pregnancy and post-partum. [ Time Frame: 12-24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Calculate the validity of measurements form the bladder scanner ultrasound for bladder volumes during the third trimester of pregnancy and post-partum. [ Time Frame: 12-24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

| Primary Completion Date:
||December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
