so--i FINALLY have my anatomy scan tomorrow! so excited! but i was wondering, is it a good idea to drink juice or a small coke before the appt to get them moving? or no, because then they are too hyper and wont stay still for pictures? what have you found works best?

I didn't drink anything before mine and baby was flipping around like crazy so the ultrasound lady had to work hard to get a picture. Some people say drink apple juice to make sure the baby is moving though.

I've always had to drink something like 24 oz of water an hour before my appointment. I usually do drink 6-8 oz of juice and the rest water just to help the baby want to wiggle a bit. I do remember reading not to drink anything carbonatated though so maybe skip the soda and drink juice or lemonade or something.

I don't usually drink anymore than usual. If I empty my bladder before I leave the house. By the time I get to the hospital (25mins) my bladder is usually full already! Lol

Oh and I usually eat something sugary about half an hour before. Maybe some chocolate or jelly sweets.

You don't have to have a full bladder? I'm so jealous. I always have to pee so bad that it hurts. There is a bathroom next to the ultrasound room and the second I'm done, I make a beeline for the bathroom.

When I scheduled my elective they told us that I should drink some apple juice or something right before to get the baby moving. I ate a hot fudge sundae (something sweet is supposed to do) and that did not do the job cause she still did not want to move.

Good luck on baby being a boy.!! Cannot wait to hear.
