Prepare your body

Prepare your body for the ultrasound by eating a light meal and drinking plenty of water 

A full bladder is very important for the ultrasound exam. Empty your bladder 90 minutes before exam time and then drink one 8-ounce glass of fluid (water, milk, coffee) an hour beforehand to stay hydrated.

Be comfortable

Wear loose-fitting clothing that is comfortable to move in 

When getting an ultrasound, it’s important that you’re as comfortable as possible. It’s best to wear clothes that you can move in easily and will not interfere with the ultrasound probe.

We recommend a two-piece outfit so we can access your abdomen without you having to remove any clothes.

Bring friends and family

If you’re feeling nervous about being alone during the ultrasound, bring someone who can be there for support and just because!

Bring any little brothers and sisters along too, so they can see their baby sibling on screen as well. It’ll make them feel like part of the process.

By the way, if your significant other is on the fence about finding out the baby’s gender early, here are some ways to convince them.
