So we went for the ultrasound on Tuesday to check the anatomy and the baby was measuring great, the only problem is that he (I say he bc DH and I feel this is a boy) would not unfold his legs. He just sat in there with his little hand on his knee, legs tucked underneath him and he would not move <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> He kicks a lot, especially when DH has is hand or arm on my belly, but when the ultrasound is looking, he barely moved! Both DH and I are very interested in knowing the sex and it was kind of frustrating that he wasn't cooperating, especially since we will now have to repeat the us because they could not check out his legs at all. DH and I decided on a UC, but one of the ways DH is comfortable with it is because we wll have the us check out everything beforehand (as much as possible) so he feels less nervous that something will not be right.<br><br>
Gaaahhhh.

BUMMER!<br><br>
My dd did that with me. I was 6 months along and had to have an emergency appendectomy, so they did and ultrasound and the tech offered to peek for me. We couldn't get her to budge, the little booger!<br><br>
Better luck next time! Do you know when you'll have another one?

with your next u/s, try drinking lots of juice (or pop) before you go, since you'll need a full bladder regardless.<br><br>
My 1st refused to show w/ both u/s. My 2nd showed with the 2nd u/s. I drank a can of raspberry iced tea before I went, and kept his lil' butt up and moving!!

Umm... ya don't really need to have a full bladder after you are about 18ish weeks. Cause they are taking up more space in the uterus. The reason you need a full bladder for the early u/s is so that the baby doesn't have as much room to move. At least I found this to be true. Thank goodness! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I thought that too, but they are making me have a full bladder when I go in at 18 wks (and the same last time). I wish I didn't have to...it's pure torture!! It's worse than labour<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> !

I had an u/s at 8 weeks to check the dates and was told to drink 36 ounces of water beforehand. I couldn't hold it- I was literally shaking while in the waiting room- so I finally gave up and sneaked off into the bathroom to urinate.<br><br>
During the u/s the technician pointed out my bladder and commented that it was very full so I confessed that I hadn't followed the rules. She said it didn't really matter, anyway, so I don't know why they put me through the torture in the first place...
