I'm 19+3 today. On Tuesday I went for my morph scan and Bub wouldn't let them get the measurements they needed for her spine so we had to come back today.
They've told me to come back in a week, but given how stubborn she is I'm sure there'll just be a repeat of this.
Any tips on how to get her to move?
What happens if they just can't get the measurements required? I'm getting stressed!

Stubborn baby at morphology scan

Sorry to hear. How frustrating! Assuming you are going to a reputable place etc?
Babe is so small at that gestation I would think he/she would be spinning around a lot. You could try inversions (look at spinning baby website), helps to stretch the ligaments in your lower pelvic region allowing more room to move etc. apparently 😊. It's not harmful at any gestation so worth a shot I think.
Others swear by eating chocolate/drinking coffee before the scan to ensure Bub is active. I have always had movers and shakers so haven't needed to try, my boys were never still! Best of luck!

Oh my dd was the same at the 20 week scan...I was there for hours trying to get her to move. They tried poking my belly to get bub to move (which she didn't). They also got me to stand up & lean over to encourage baby to move. Then I had to drink a soft drink which did the trick. So before each scan I had a small amount of soft drink if I could stomach it & it seemed to do the trick.
It's so difficult when they do that but at least you get to see your little one again I remember my 20 week scan baby was all twisted up like a pretzel is what they told me.

Both of mine were the same and I had to go back again for each of them. This time my one wasn't cooperating the second time either but they got me to have some juice and walk around a bit. She still didn't move much but just enough for them to get what they needed. I know how frustrating and stressful it is. Fingers crossed next time is better.

My DS was very stubborn and wouldn't move, so they got me to get on my hands and knees, put my butt up in the air and shake around 😅😅 Sounds (and looks) ridiculous, but it did the trick!
