Drink a Coke before finding out the sex of a baby.....

 I have an Ultrasound tomorrow; I am 19 weeks.  My Dr. said that we could find out the sex of our baby, at this point.  A friend of mine said that I should drink a coke before I go in for the Ultrasound because it will help the baby position itself to where we can tell the sex better.  Has anyone ever done this? Is there any truth to this?

I haven't heard of this, but the caffeine might make the baby a bit more active which would make for a fun ultrasound!  HAVE FUN watching your baby!!!

My Dr. actually told me to drink orange juice to make baby more active before the ultrasound.

Thanks, Mandyjh! I was researching online, and some else posted about ice cold OJ.  I may have to try it! angel mini

I don't think it's wise to drink soda while pregnant. Juice or fresh fruit would be likely to make your baby more active before the ultrasound. Have fun!
