Should I eat some sugar before my us to make baby move?

I've got my anatomy scan in half an hour. Should I eat some sugar to make the baby move around? This time of day she's always asleep and I want to make sure we get good pictures of her.

Drink some orange juice or any kind of juice.....that should help wake her up (plus it is healthier than eating a candy bar or other refined sugar).......Good luck at your scan..

I didn't have to eat/drink anything sugary, but the tech would have me move on each side to get different measurements because of how the baby was positioned.  That moving around helped her become more active.
