lol.. I thought maybe it was just more expensive here in CA or something. But yeah I want to go around 28 weeks too so I can see her face better. They are saying it's one of the best times to view the baby but she tends to snuggle and hide alot so I have no idea if I am going to get a good view of her or not. I swear they only give me five minutes to see her at the doctors office.



The last few pictures I got at my 20 week scan were terrible at the doctor's office. My husband agreed that we got a better view of her at the 4-D place.

My last appointment was yesterday, I was 23 weeks and 2 days and she looked better than she did at the 20 week appointment, I guess she just looked a little alien-ish because she wouldn't hold still for the pictures lol (it's the ones I posted in here a few posts ago). And I got my last 4D ultrasound with my last pregnancy when I was 28 weeks, but he had a lot of complications and didn't really look like a "normal" baby when he was born, so that could be why he looked a little different in the ultrasound. Hopefully this 4D ultrasound goes good and she isn't being crazy and we can get a clear picture lol.

Yeah, you can google 4D ultrasounds in your area and see what comes up. The lady I go to isn't located in a doctor's office or anything, she just has her business in her own building. Some doctor's offices offer it at an extra price, but yeah normally you have to pay out of pocket. My doctor has done a few of the 3D ones for me just to be nice (like the ones I posted earlier) but I wanted to go to this lady again because she gives us a DVD of the whole session, a CD so we can put them on the computer and a TON of printed pictures. Oh, and apparently a gift bag too lol. Most places offer the DVD and CD in their packages.

That's freakin ridiculous! Maybe you can ask your doctor if he/she knows of any other places that do them? Mine's $80 for thirty minutes and you get a bunch of pics, a DVD and a CD (and you can have as many people in the room as you want). I read another thread about 3D ultrasounds and people were saying they pay like $150.. that's crazy!

Went to my 22 week ultrasound today, she was definitely in a better position this time. She was laying on her back and very cooperative.



The tech managed to do a very thorough anatomy scan and even lingered on the baby for a bit so I could see her move her little limbs and hiccup. I could just watch that all day. I was so in love.



Still my baby girl.. that's three times checking so I don't feel worried about that anymore.

The tech said she was smiling here but whether you could see that or not I'unno. All I see is a bow on her nose and a mustard squiggle on her mouth. lol.. She called her a happy baby. I sure hope so. :)

Are anyone else's feet swelling already? Mine have been since I was like 17 weeks and it's only my left foot.. it sucks! Last pregnancy my feet didn't swell until I was way further along so I feel like it's too early for this to be happening lol.

lol I hear you on the ultrasound thing too. I found out the gender at the 4D place and she was like "oh it's def a girl" I was like "..yeahhhh.............I see."



:D



But yeah the techs I get at my doctors office that do ultrasounds are terrible. They hardly ever talk to you and have no personality whatsoever. I had my friend go with me today since the appointment wasn't early enough for my husband to go and she asked the tech "So, how big is she?" and the tech replied "I dunno. She's whatever the books say." in a grumbly voice. It was so rude! I mean I kept cracking jokes at the weird shapes I was seeing and how at one point my baby looked like she was in a donut life preserver that made the tech laugh, and in turn probably got me a couple extra seconds of baby footage but I dunno. I'm really wishing I could have gone elsewhere for this whole pregnancy.



No swelling of the feet yet for me? I try to keep my feet elevated when i'm sitting up in bed. I'm kinda surprised I don't have nasty issues because i'm tall and so i'm always awkwardly crossing my legs, and I know you shouldn't.
