I'm being super anal frugal nowadays, but I'm definitely springing for a 3D/4D ultrasound. I want to see my baby's face soooo bad!

I'm not - I can wait to see the baby's face when he gets here. I kind of think they're creepy Plus cost-wise it's the same to get a maternity shoot and I guess I want to get pictures of our family not covered in amniotic fluids

Honestly I wouldn't have gotten one, except it was my only way to find out if baby was a boy or girl lol and the only reason for a second one is I won it and its free so!! lol

I would have done the sammmmmeee thing! I was itching to get one at 16 weeks because I couldn't wait until 20. Your doctor is a freak for not telling you the gender when you wanted to know.

Probably not. I need to get a carseat and stroller before that (and the 3d costs more than those together!). I'd love to see him though. If we are still here and deliver him here my doctor wants to get another scan done around 36/37 weeks which I think would just be 2d which is fine with me!

We are doing one this Sunday, before our baby shower. We're kind of doing it for my mother, who will be in town, and the in-laws. We're going to a place that has a viewing room that holds 25. $79 for the entire thing which includes printed color pics, black and white pics and a disk to take home with up to 50 pictures on it.

I've read they should be at 26 weeks or after (when baby starts to get more chunky) but after 32 you risk baby being head down and unable to see their face. Not sure how true all that is since this is our first. But I'll be at 27 W & 6 days, so hoping to see what baby girl looks like!

We're not getting one, but they're neat to see. One of my best friends is due any time now, and she had one done. It was crazy how much the baby looked like her 2-year old son.

If I weren't so cheap, I would get one done...I am curious to see what he looks like, but I'm not curious enough to pay for it. Like Melissa said, I'd rather pay for pictures afterwards, when he isn't covered in gunk, AND he will be in color

I did have one done at our 20 week ultrasound, which was mildly creepy.

Not I. I had a fun one done with #6, it was neat, though the pictures were not great from it. Unless at one of my regular appointments they play around and switch it over to 3D I will not.
