We had a scan a few weeks ago and baby's face was tucked right down and hidden. We've got another scan this afternoon and it's our last go. 1) because I'm 32 weeks and 2) they only offer one free rescan and I'm not paying £150 again!
Last time I ate a snickers and drank ice cold water about half an hour before I went in and that didn't help! She then sent me away to do star jumps etc and we tried again and baby didn't move at all sad
Any tips on how to make baby move? Or be awake and active?

Lucozade always works for me! x

I've had 2 3d/4d scans and both time my little one didnt want to budge, I had a gender scan at 17 weeks and a 4d scan at 27 weeks.

I know its awful and the midwife would probably tell me off but I drank a lucozade (still one not fizzy) ate 2 mars bars, some glucose tablets (they were rank!), walked for 20 minutes and star jumped around like a a crazy woman.
He turned around after all that smile

The 27 week scan, there were 3 of us in the same position all trying to get the baby to move, as we had to keep going in and out, we were there for 3 hours!
Got our pics and DVD and was completely worth it in the end!
Good luck!!

I did all of this about 15 mins before we were due to go in btw, I was scared if I did it too early, baby would be over the sugar rush and I would just need a wee wink

Thanks everyone. Will try as much as possible, I really want to see baby's face!

I don't think any of this matters now as am stuck in non moving traffic on the M1 so don't think I'm going to make the appointment ! sad

Oh no sad
Did you make it? I hope you did x

We did ! grin
No time to buy any drink or food to help baby move and was late but we got our photos. Very happy! X
