Why is carrying around a cup of urine a TV thing?

Or is it? I'm working from home and also finishing (belatedly) Orange is the New Black. (Spoilers ahead for my fellow laggards.) There's a scene when Piper does a pregnancy test and sits, I guess in the urine (mistype and it stays) LIVING room with her boyfriend whilst having a conversation about maybe having a baby. I don't watch a ton of TV, but am pretty sure I've seen characters do this in other shows as well.

Do real women walk around their homes carrying urine while waiting for results? The few times I've had to do it, I just stayed in the bathroom. Maybe I'm just a prude. Or sanitary.
