a lot of people say to drink caffeine but I was told that will make them move around TOO much and you wont get good pictures...
I ate a granola bar on my way to the appointment, just enough food to give him energy to be moving around, but not too much energy to where he was a crazy jumping bean in there...
I only drank water and my little guy was moving like crazy in there. The tech had an awful time trying to get the pictures she needed. I felt so bad!

THIS. My little one was squirming like crazy, the tech was really frustrated. We also didn't find out the gender at that appointment like we had hoped :/
We had to go back for another a/s 2 weeks later.
Although it wasn't intentional my husband and I had some time to kill before our appointment. We went to Friendly's. I ate a Forbidden Fudge Brownie Sundae. The tech asked if I had eaten recently. Hmmm, yep! The baby moved a lot but we got some awesome pictures. The tech wasn't frustrated either. It may have taken a few minutes longer but other than that it was fine. She gave us 24 pictures!
I hear most people drink OJ or water. My doctor never mentioned anything either way.
Same here! I have an active little guy in there though so wasn't worried about him not moving around! The tech had a hard time getting the heart picture because he wouldn't stop moving...I don't want to know what it would have been like if I drank OJ or ate chocolate etc...haha
