While this would definitely suit my needs, I was hoping to get the actual current. That way every few seconds I could see what the current was then at the end I could get an actual mAh reading rather than just a voltage/time number. Could I still do that?

If you discharge the battery through a known resistance and measure the voltage across the resistor then you can calculate the current through the resistor; by integrating the current over time you can calculate the charge capacity. By integrating the voltage * current over time you can calculate the energy capacity.
