Anyone get a 3D ultrasound yet?
Fri, 08-24-2012 - 11:41am

I have 3 appts scheduled next week! Tuesday is my 3D ultrasound, Wed is my 2 hour glucose test, & Thurs is my routine appt. Needless to say I'm only excited about the ultrasound and really hope I get some good face shots. The Dr. said that for the best results it should be done between 27-29 weeks. Has anyone else had theres yet and if so, how many weeks were you?

My doc will do one at around 31-32 weeks. I'm always excited to take a peek, but I guess it's not a huge deal for us at this point. We had so many u/s during our last pregnancy I guess it lost the appeal!!

I am fairly sure I will not be getting one. My doc does not do them unless there is a medical reason, but I will double check on wednesday when I go in for my giant appointment.

I had one with my big anatomy scan at 20 weeks. It didn't work for me, though. The tech said I had too much interference and could only get a tiny window at my belly button and couldn't get a good look. I think it wasn't a good machine. I have no idea what she meant my interference. I do get another ultrasound this next week and it would be nice if they tried again with the 3D, but I don't know if they will or not.
