Well ladies, today is my 3rd ultrasound..had one at 18, 20 and now 21. Baby has been VERY uncooperative so this is my last chance to finish the anatomy scan up. They said they werent able to get part of the brain and heart on the last two. Also the tech said possible girl the first time and wasnt able to get anything on the second one. So wish me luck that the baby plays nice today and we can finally finish everything up that I need. Ill post later when I get home to tell what happened. Ultrasound is at 4. Any advice on how to get the baby moving more for the ultrasound? I decided to try orange juice this time.

Goodluck ok? Keep us posted.

Last time I tried mountain dew an hour before I left...I drank a whole 20oz...thought I was going to be sick, lol. Im wondering if its the tech....im going to ask for a different one this time thats for sure.

oh make sure you empty your bladder, cause for some reason that can make it hard as well.

 

Kiddolebel - January 19

Hmmm see they make me have a full bladder before I go in......think they'll be mad? I know the baby hates it when my bladder is full.

you should only have a full bladder for your first one which is done in the first tri-mester, i would empty and say well i just couldn't hold it, whata they gonna do (LOL)

 

Kiddolebel - January 19

Lol!! I agree 100%! It starts to hurt now when i hold it anyways. I told my hubby i was going to keep drinking all the way until we get there but if i have to go i have to go =)

just a little advise if you hold it in to long durning pregnancy you are high risk for UTI, i get 2 every pregnancy and never had one in my life, so becareful.

 

Kiddolebel - January 19

Yeah those are what im scared of when I have to hold it anymore. Im prone to those if I drink certain things...Havent had any with either pregnancies yet....But i did have one in the VERY beginning of this one. Im not going to hold it for this u/s. Everyone is right...you only need the full bladder for the really early ultrasounds. I dont understand why I had to for the past couple ones. Plus what do I have to lose right...doesnt hurt to try something new to help make this one easier. I go to a radiology clinic for my ultrasounds. Im really starting to wonder if it was just the tech that was messing up or something. I had the same one for the first 2. Im for sure asking for a different one this time. Thanks for the advice about the UTI's though. I keep forgetting that those can come easily during pregnancy. =)

When I went in for my anatomy the tech was upset that the people at the booking test were telling people to have a full bladder, she made me empty mine. SHe said that it gets in the way and has no useful purpose in an anatomy scan. :) so I would suggest maybe drinking like right before you go in therefore its not in your bladder yet... just a suggestion :)

 

Ba8y6irl - January 19

oh and good luck on finding out if she is in fact a girl... I know its been bugging you :)

 

Kiddolebel - January 19

Thanks, thats what im planning on doing now. Thank you ladies for your help. Im really hoping this is going to be the last one for the anatomy scan and all goes well.
