Hey, when are you guys going to have this done? I'm 24 weeks now and most websites for these ultrasounds say you should do them between 26-30 weeks. I am planning on going on week 29 or 30.

For those of you who had this done in previous pregnancies, when did you go and were you happy with the results?

I want to wait as long as possible so that Wyatt looks semi what he's going to look like, but also don't want to wait too long that he's too squished and they can't get a good shot...

(that's just because I'm cold right now)

I had one done at 18 weeks with my first due to complications. I have never had an elective one done. I loved seeing my baby so.clearly.

I'm getting mine done on the 16th of next month...I'll be 29 weeks. You don't want to wait too late to do it because you won't be able to see the baby well due to them being squished in there and you don't want it too early because then you won't really be able to tell what they look like yet. I would say the best time in between 27 and 32 weeks.

I got a 3D U/S of DS at 31 weeks along and the pictures turned out great. The later the better IMO bc baby gets more fat on their bones and as they start to fill out they start to really resemble what they'll look like at birth.

we did DD's at either 31 or 32 weeks and she was so squished in there that we had a hard time getting good pictures. I'll go closer to 28 or 29 weeks this time. Which is really soon!!!!! YAY!!! We went to a private ultrasound place and paid about $100 for the scan.

I agree with the 3D looking kinda creepy to me, or at least kinda weird. Maybe I've just seen bad examples!

My doctor's office did one for me when I went in for my anatomy scan at 21 weeks. One of my pictures is my avatar above. I thought they looked pretty good but there were definitely some skeleton-type shots.

And I agree that a lot of the shots can look a bit strange/creepy but I've also seen some really cute 4d pictures. My sister has this absolutely adorable 4d pic of her son that is still framed at my parent's house (he is now 3 1/2).

My next ultrasound is at the end of February so I'll be 28 weeks. I don't know if the perinatologist has 3D capability on their machine, but I'm gonna ask. I won't get an elective one done since I'm having to pay for all these ones. Too much dinero!

I'm planning on doing my week 29/30. I am so excited!!! It's my first, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I can't wait to see him.

I went at 30 with my first son and couldnt see much. With this baby I got one done at 21 weeks and he already looks like he has chubby cheeks. I get another ultrasound on the 24th but I am not sure they will do a 3D one. we will see I will be 26 weeks if they decide to do it.
