What to eat/drink to get them moving?!

I'm having a 3D ultrasound on Sunday morning I can't WAIT!!!  I'll be 17 weeks and 4 days so I really hope these babies show us what they are!  I can't wait to find out what we're having.  When I did my 3D u/s with DS I had a king size snickers and a pepsi on the way and the little booger was ASLEEP with his hands over his face!  They kept shaking my belly and trying to get him to move.  Just wondering if anyone had any success with eating/drinking anything in particular to get those babies a movin?!

 I have my anatomy scan 4 days later so I figure if I can't find out at one I SHOULD find out at the other scan!  But we have all the grandmas and aunts going to the 3D one so I really hope we do find out what we're having!

    I don't have any personal experience yet, but a friend told another pregnant friend that a big cold glass of orange juice followed by a cold glass of water always worked for her.

    Lipton tea makes this individual packs that you can pour into a bottle of water to make tea. I use to have one of the raspberry green tea ones with lunch. About a half hour after that the girls would be doing somersalts in there. I went to a NST one day after having this with lunch and they were kicking the monitors right off my belly.

    Oj never really did anything for them, but that green tea sure did.

    Good luck, I hope you get to see the goods.
