Only if I get one at my OB...there aren't any places around here that do them..I tried looking them up, and found nothing.
I did one with DD and it was amazing, looked exactly like her.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!!

At my 16 week scan they did a 4d "freeview" but we didn't get any photos. We are going to get one done at 24-25 weeks though. That's the earliest they do them at the place I go. I youtubed a bunch of 4d videos of different ages and even though the baby will still be skinny, I think you get a better view of them since the ones at 30ish+ weeks looked a bit big..I feel like I may see more if I do it a bit earlier.

We are not going to get one this time. We tried with DD and she would not for the life of her let us get a good shot so we arent even going to try this time. Plus its $150 that we can use for the baby in other areas.

We are definitely going to get another one.. Colin was about 33 weeks when we had it done so I was worried about the pictures being bad.. But they were seriously AMAZING.. We'll do the same with Brock (feels funny to have a name already) around the same time!

seriously, the longer you can wait the better.. at least IMO!

If I have the money I'd like to do one around 28 weeks. I was further along when I did it with DD and she was not cooperating so we didn't get a lot of clear shots of her face. My OB office offers them cheaper than the other 2 places I could go...

We got a 3D sneak peek at the 14week gender scan we payed for. We will use the place again for just a 3d package at 28 and 30. With Alex we got great pictures at 26wks and with Ryker we did it at 29wks.

We got ours last time at 30 weeks and I may try a little bit earlier if we are able to.

Here are a few of Darcy at 30 weeks:

I definitely plan on doing this! I'm going to see about doing sometime between weeks 26-28. The place we have in town does the whole thing.. pictures, video, audio. It will even broadcast the whole 20 minute session as a secure internet video so people who can't come with us can watch it at home! Plus, we get pictures and I think a video of it.. And a teddy bear with the heartbeat recorded in it. Can't pass that up!

I really want to have one but my DH thinks it is kind of creepy to be able to see the baby in 3D/4D and to see what baby looks like before birth, so he really doesn't want to do it but I am still working on it

Just had one on saturday lol and I was 16 weeks 5 days, really wanted to know the sex and could not wait till July for when my midwife scheduled me. I loved it, got a great package for $150 and got a discount of my next visit where I will be getting the same package at $79 so I will wait till about the 8th month so I can see the features of this little lady.

We might. My doc's office actually offers them for like 100 bucks. I'm not sure if it is worth the money...still thinking. We didn't do one for DS, but the doc flipped it to 3d for a few shots at the 20 week and 34 week u/s.

I'm not paying out of pocket for one because I've never seen a good one, they never turn out like the pics places have on their website or walls! But the place I go to for my 18 week u/s does it for free at the appt. With my son his face looked like he had craters in it, even people I know who got it further along, their pictures still turned out scary looking! So I'd never pay money for that.

I'd like to, my sister did for this place that was offering half hr of 3D for a $65 special. Included DVD of the whole thing, 72 pictures on disk and gender confirmation. If I have extra money for it I might.
