Good Afternoon BG gals!! I am 14 weeks pregnant...My next dr. apt is on Jan 20th, ill be around 18 weeks...my dr. is going to give me a 3D ultrasound to find the sex of the baby....I just wanted to know if any of you girls had a 3d ultrasound at 18 weeks also for the sex?? and what did the baby look like?? is it easier and more accurate on a 3d ultrasound then at a regular ultrasound?? and if you have any pictures...pleaSe post!!
I had my ultrasound at 19 weeks and some odd days. She found the sex using only the 2d ultrasound, but showed us his face and what not on the 3d. She said the 3d at 18 weeks the babies aren't all taht cute because they still don't have hardly any body fat.
I didn't have a 3D to determine the sex, but I did have a 3D at my 20 weeks scan. They did photos of his belly & legs & his face. I have some in my babies album, but here is one of them:
I was 18 weeks when I had my first one..
here are some pics..
of course, it was easier to find the sex in our 2D image..
Yup, I was 18 weeks and the sonographer threw in a 4D pic
It doesn't even compare to the 4D image done just 5 weeks later where you can see his face perfectly. But as for the gender, I thought it was more clear in the 2D picture. He put an arrow in the above picture saying it was his penis, but I swear I think it's just a part of the umbilical cord... it's pointing the wrong way. Check out my "pregnancy" album and you'll see the sonograms there labeled with the weeks.
This is the 23 week sonogram in 4D. Big difference.
Quoting Johanna's moma:
I just had my 3d ultrasound at 18 weeks and it was a good thing i did because i had a 2d ultrasound at 16 weeks and they told me it was a boy....well after my 3d ultrasound...surprise ! it was a girl ! lol :D:wink:
