what can i do to ensure i get quality ultrasound pictures?
Prior to scheduling your appointment, pay attention to when your baby is most active and schedule your ultrasound for that time frame. Also, pay attention to whether eating or drinking changes your baby’s activity level. If eating or drinking makes your baby active, be sure to eat prior to your appointment. If it makes your baby sleepy, adjust your meal so that your baby will be ready for it’s big show. Many baby’s become active after mom drinks something cold or fruity, so try a fruit smoothie prior to your appointment. Be sure to hydrate well 24-48 hours prior to your appointment. Good hydration will affect your amniotic fluid which can affect your images. Finally, the best images of your baby’s face are obtained when your baby is head down. If you suspect that your baby is breech, postpone your appointment until your baby flips.
