How To Get My Baby Moving!

I have a 4-D ultrasound tomorrow at 8 am. I want him to wiggle around and give us some good pictures of his face. This is our second try, because the first time I went in, he hid his face in my placenta the whole time and slept. That was at 4 pm, so we are trying a morning appointment this time. Any suggestions on what I should eat, do, or try to get him wiggling around so we can get good pictures and a good ultrasound video?
