Is there any way that I can get the baby to be more active?

I am going Wednesday to find out what I am having and I was wondering if there is anything that I can do to make sure it's alert and moving around... Thanks!

  • Mrs. Owen is right. Eat a big meal like 30 minutes before too and lots of OJ. That's what I did and the second the ultrasound tech put the monitor on, my son was spread eagle! Haha

  • for the ultrasound, it say in the instructions NOT to drink orange juice (or any other non-clear liquid) so as usually it would be a good idea, they tell you not too for purpose of the ultrasound.

    any sugar loaded juice should do the trick though.
