Hey everybody... going for my ultrasound today and I was wandering if there were any suggestions to help make sure the baby is a moving :) I plan on eating a cold fruit cup about 30-45 mins before my appointment..should that do the trick??? Its 7:00am now and my appt. is 3:00pm- thanks all :)

I just had mine on Monday.. How far are you? I am 17+ weeks and my baby was squirming and moving like crazy. In fact the tech was having a hard time getting measurements! So im sure your little one will be active as well... Good luck! and ENJOY

Ours was just hanging out in there and the tech had to jiggle the baby to get it to move around more. I think that we have a snoozer on our hands! We weren't told that we were going for our "big" u/s so I didn't do anything abnormal. Our tech said something with sugar or a cold gla__s of water will work great to get the little one moving! Good luck!

my ultrasound tech said drink cold water...or cold fruit...some girls have suggested a 1/2 cup of caffiee or sugar just before going in...like 1/2 cup of coffee, or 1/2 can of soda, or some candy. I did the water thing and my little one was a snoozer...he only moved to turn so all we could see was his but. I didn't know about the caffine or sugar thing...but then some girls are avoiding that for their baby...just some suggestions.

Relax, and enjoy your little one's first "portrait"!! I had a can of Coke & baby girl was dancing, I think!

I don't go for mine until tuesday but when I went for my ds ultrasound last time I drank a can of grape soda and the poor kid was seriously running a marathon in my uterus. So needless to say I will probably at least cut that portion in half this time...lol!

Lots of cold water will do the trick. Mine was actually moving so much the tech was having a hard time taking measurments and it took FOREVER for her to find the s_x because she couldn get a good pic. so moving alot is the same as not moving at all...
