Who has had or will have one either electively or because your OB offers them. We are going tomorrow at 1 day shy of 27 weeks and I'm wondering how good of a time frame it is. I've googled it of course and everything I've read seems to say that now is a good time but these things, electively, are fairly expensive. I just want the best possible pictures! Any comments or advice? I've never had one before!

27 to 32 weeks is one of the best times because there is still room (so they are not smushed) and their faces are developed.

My office does them for free, and since I have an u/s at 32 weeks to check my placenta and Lucas' growth and breathing, we are gonna ask for a 3D look at his face

I may do another one in a couple of weeks. My Dr.'s office offers them but you have to pay out of pocket and it's $100.00 and they only do them on Thursdays. Maybe again at 29 weeks?

They have them at my doctor's office, but the ultrasound check just switches to 3D when she feels like she can get a good shot at a face. I don't think we'll be having a full 3D since we're able to catch little glimpses during our normally scheduled ultrasounds. We caught a profile of the girl, but everytime they turned the 3D on, the boy would turn his head at the last minute.

My friend is an ultrasound tech, and has his own 3D place. He told me the best time to go is between 26-29 weeks

Thanks Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!

I'm doing an elective ultrasound on October fifth My sister had one done with her son and from what I've experienced electives have way better quality machines. Ours will cost us about $200. Plus, the place i'm going to has a "new generation" 3D/4D machine, and it looks soooo cool!

My Dr.'s office has it with the big ultrasound I just had. That's why my Dr.'s office doesn't do the 'big' ultrasound until 24 weeks. I was bummed the baby didn't cooperate as much so we didn't get a good profile picture. They were just coming out with these u/s's back when I was pregnant with my son 11 years ago so I didn't get one with him, but had one with both my girls and it's amazing how much my girls looked just like the profile picture we got of them! I'm hoping I get a good picture when I have my u/s to check baby's size because of gestational diabetes.

My midwife is doing an u/s The 20th at 28 weeks so if we don't get any 3D, we'll do an elective the next week. I think I owe this baby some 3D pics for his scrapbook since I e only taken one belly pic

Edit I guess I'll be 29 weeks On The 20th now that I see my ticker. Time is flying!
