  1. If you are going for your "big" ultrasound, don't drink the Dr Pepper. Too much moving means they can't get the measurements they need and you might not find out the sex.

  2. Be careful. IF the baby is moving to much, you wont be able to find out the sex because the baby will be squirming to much. My ultrasound tech told me to eat normally throughout the day.

  3. Isn't the moving the best? I thought it was the coolest when (towards the end obviously) you could SEE the movement inside from the outside . . . so weird but I loved it! :-) and i kinda missed it when she was outside of me haha :-)

  4. Well I was told by my Ultra Sound tech to drink the Dr. Pepper or Mountain Dew before the 2nd Ultra Sound because she was not moving enough the first time and she could not get all the measurements and could not be sure on the sex. So I guess it all depends.

  5. We better find out! I have purchasing to do!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for your comments!
