For those of you having the 4D ultrasound done: At what week are you doing it? I go in for my gender ultrasound next Wednesday. I'll be 18 weeks 4 days. I know baby doesn't have much fat then. Do you think it would be worth the extra 200? I realllly want it. But I want to make sure it's worth it! :-D

I'm going in for my anatomy scan next week Thursday (I'm due 7/3). The scan is 3D/4D, and 18wks is when the hospital scheduled it for....

Hmmmmm, honestly, I would wait...at the ultrasound studio (that I have become a regular at lol) she recommended the best results can be seen at about 28 weeks, there is still lots of room left in there and the baby has more fat. She did a quick 3D/4D on me yesterday...at 17 weeks, and the baby was still pretty skinny and small....but if your anxious to get it done, I would maybe suggest you wait until 20 weeks?

I would wait if you are paying for it. The baby is super skinny and the 4D pics are not that cute at this point (I just had one at 16 weeks being an u/s model) . The tech told me a good time to have the 4D u/s is about 30 weeks when the baby had some meat on it's bones :-)

I say you should wait until at least 28 weeks. I had one at 28 weeks and DD didn't want to cooperate so they let me come back again and I went in at 30 weeks. I think that is about the time most places recommend going. Definately hold off if you want to really see what the baby looks like.

I'm doing 2, a 3/d at 16 weeks (it's more for gender but they do 2d and then 3d) and then a 3d at 28-30 weeks to bring my dd's with so they can see bob

I also agree! 28-30 weeks is ideal and such a great time to get great pictures.
