Ultrasound And OJ

April mom - December 4

Hi All, I read in a lot of posts here that if you drink OJ just before you go for your US, the baby will be very active and it will be easy to find the s_x of the baby. For me it actually backfired. I had my 20 week US yesterday, and I had OJ just before the US. The technician first did all the measurements and then went on to find the s_x of the baby. When she was doing all the measurements, the baby was very active, that she said she couldn't keep up with the baby. But by the time she finsihed taking all the measurements, I guess the baby got tired, and slept off, and we just couldn;t find the s_x because of the position. i was so dissapointed. Has anyone had this experience? I guess I sort of knew that my baby was active as it is, cause I was able to feel movements as early as 13 weeks, and now the baby is kicking me all the time :-). So may be I shudnt have had the OJ.

So what's your question?

It's a toss up. I had some yogurt before my u/s, and the baby was very active & because of that, we WERE able to see his little boy parts very clearly indeed. But I have a friend who having some energy nourishment (such as yogurt, oj, what-have-you) beforehand backfired on, too. Her baby was very active, and they couldn't see the s_x. And then there are just babies who are really active even though you haven't ingested anything but the 4 cups of water you're required to... just because. And sonographers have been able to see the s_x or not see the s_x whether the baby was active or not. Sometimes, the umbilical cord's in the way. You never know. It's just a thing. Sorry you're little one didn't let you see. But supposedly you can schedule another u/s specifically to find out the s_x in a few weeks. At least, that's what the nurse at my doc's office told me. It might be different from place to place. Good luck!
