h__lo all. i have my 19 wk ultrasound scheduled on tuesday and i was wondering if anyone had any advice on anything i could do to help insure we'll be able to see the s_x. i've read alot of posts on here where women say the tech couldn't tell because of baby's position. i read someting about oj (which i plan to drink plenty of), but does anyone know of anything else? i'm dying to find out and don't think i can stand going any longer not knowing the s_x. thank you ladies.

The first time i went the baby was face down and we couldnt see. The tech couldnt see the heart or the face well either so we got to come back 3 weeks later. I drank a coke and ate a muffin right when I got to the doctors office to ensure the baby would be awake. It worked, the tech got to check all the stuff she needed and said she was 80% sure it was a girl! Try to eat or drink right before your ultrasound. They get a burst of energy from the food and after that the go to sleep so do it right before.

I went through the same thing! I really wanted to know so I posted a thread too. What I came up w/ was sweet, cold, and orange. So I ate a scoop of orange creamcicle ice cream on the way. The tech could definatly see my little boy bouncing all around! Good luck!

THE baby is more clear when there are more fluids in you. Cold soda!! But all i had was cold water, my boy had his legs wide open both times when i saw him. Not shy at all :)

Hi ladies. I am 24 weeks and have my 3D / 4D ultrasound in 2 weeks. They told me to drink half a gla__s of Sunny Delight. Specifically that because of the sugar. The only problem with coke is that it isn't decaf. I drink regular OJ everyday and the baby doesn't move that much but when I drank half a gla__s of Sunny delight he was all over the place. I do want to warn you that when you go for this ultrasound they are checking for everything. The kidney's, Spine, length of the legs and arms, brain, heart chambers, Everything..... I had to go for a second because he was moving too much. It was kind of cool because I saw my little guy again but the ultrasound tech's get frustrated. Good luck ladies
