Why Do I Need to Drink Water Before a 3D/4D/5D/HD LIVE Ultrasound?

Why Do I Need to Drink Water Before a 3D/4D/5D/HD LIVE Ultrasound?

In general, most women should start drinking approximately eight glasses of eight ounces of water each day for about a week before your scheduled ultrasound session.  If your doctor recommends a different amount, always follow your doctors instructions.  You should also drink plenty of water the day of your appointment and refrain from using the restroom until after your 3D/4D or 5D/HD LIVE ultrasound. This helps to lift the baby to obtain optimum images. If the baby is not in a great position for images, the sonographer will have you then empty your bladder in most cases allowing the baby to move into the desired position. In addition to water, consider drinking juice or another drink with natural sugars before your 3D/4D or 5D/HD LIVE ultrasound.  This can help make your baby be more active.

Drinking plenty of water before your 3D/4D or 5D/HD LIVE Ultrasound is important for a few reasons:

Clearer Images

Drinking water not only helps increase the amniotic fluid around your baby, but it also helps make the fluid clearer.  The more amniotic fluid, the better the images, especially in the facial area.

Gender Determination

Clearer images can help us make a more definitive gender determination.  Many parents-to-be combine the gender DNA blood test with a 2D gender reveal ultrasound for confirmation.
