  • Drink some apple juice! My nurses always brought my apple juice when they monitored me, it really gets things moving around!

  • Hmm...you could take a huge glass of OJ or another sugary drink and drink it about fifteen minutes before the u/s :D You're so lucky to be getting a 3D one! I wanted one so bad >:( I'm so ready to see what my girl looks like, gahhh. Oh well. Maybe I'll get lucky with my next one.

  • it all depends on what exdcites your baby. Mine loved brownies adn went nuts whenever I ate them. I always had one before an ultrasound one time I swear he was waving to us!

  • Usually 1.5-2 hours after I eat a meal (not just a snack but a meal) is when my baby starts to move. Make sure to eat a good breakfast, not just a granola bar or a piece of fruit but get some protein like bacon or sausage in you. That helps with me.
