Drink plenty of water for 1-2 weeks before your appointment.

Yes, “fluid is our friend” and we’ve found that being well hydrated prior during pregnancy makes for better images as the level of amniotic fluid around the baby may actually increase with adequate fluid intake(80-90 ounces/day). Start well in advance; it doesn’t do much good to only drink water the night before or the morning of your 3D ultrasound.

You may want to drink a glass of orange juice or a soda on the way to your appointment. The sugar and caffiene will help the baby wiggle out of its comfy spot.
