Colonoscopy prep concern - need to hear from people who've done this

Hello, I'll be going in for my first colonoscopy on Friday (Jan. 20, 2012). I'm terrified on so many levels but many of my concerns have already been put to rest from looking at other posts on these message boards. One very real concern is how am I NOT going to have a bowel movement on the way to the hospital or during the procedure? This sounds kinda silly, but I'm pretty worried about it. My prep instructions require me to drink 1/2 of the Nutralyte solution on the actual day of the procedure (which is at 10:00 a.m.) Does anyone know what I should expect during those last couple of hours leading up to the procedure with regard to my bowel movements? I'd really appreciate any input I can get. Thanks.
