Mellissa - April 17

I had a 3d u/s done three weeks ago, but my little boy had his face pressed against my uterus and had his arms covering his head. they asked me to come back tomorrow for another one so we can hopefully get better shots of his face. i was just wondering if anyone had any tips on things i might be able to do to get him to be active a little more. thanks a bunch!!!

some say to drink some oj, eat a sugar candy, even drink a bit of coffee. If you notice that he moves more after you eat, take a snack and eat something to give him some energy to move around. I actually don't feel my little girl move more when I eat...she sleeps I think. But I notice when I eat something a bit sugary on an empty stomach it goes straight to her. maybe try givin him a nudge to if he doesn't move...? Good luck!!!

Drinking some ice cold water gets babies moving as well...not sure why but it does! :o)

thanks ladies....my appt is at 10 am, so i'm thinking maybe i'll eat some sugary cereal or something? he's been moving like crazy today, so hopefully he'll still be hyper in the morning!!! i think i'll try the OJ and ice cold water....thanks again!!!

thanks again for the advice ladies. i took both of your advice and drank the oj and the water (right before the u/s). and sure enough, he was not shy at all today. i got to see his adorable face, and he kept opening his mouth like he was eating something. lol. he even licked the back of his hand. it was soooo amazing!! thanks again for the advice!!

3-D ultrasound!!!! Okay, I need to know more about this. When do you get it? Does everyone get one? Oh Man, if so I can't wait. I have my level 2 ultrasound on the 28th. I thought seeing the little critter at 8 weeks was exciting. I can't imagine actually seeing his/her face in 3-D! I'm so happy for you Mellissa!

thanks guys... it was very exciting. i didn't do it with my daughter, 3 years ago, but i sure wish i did! unfortunately, i don't think most dr's use it as a routine ultrasound. i actually found a clinic here that does it. i paid $175 for it, so i could get a video, a cd of pics, and a sc___pbook. it's kind of a birthday present for my hubby, he's in iraq. it was the most amazing thing...i am 27 weeks now, so we got to see his features really well. you could actually see his lips and his nose and everything..he has his dad's cheeks. it was just so cute. i get the pics back on thursday, and i'll most likely post them on the web somewhere, if i do, i'l let ya'll know!!! i would definitely recommend getting one of these done, it's a great momento of your pregnancy!
