Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the difference between 2D/3D/4D ultrasounds?

    Two dimensional or 2D ultrasounds is the standard ultrasound that is used to view the baby and reveal the gender. Three dimensional or 3D ultrasounds is a more detailed image, a picture that is used to see the baby’s physical characteristics like face, body, hands, or feet. The 4D is just the 3D in motion like a video.
  • Is there any preparation for my ultrasound appointment?

    To help obtain the best images possible, make sure to drink plenty of water for at least a week prior to your appointment. Drinking plenty of water throughout your pregnancy can impact the quality of your images. Hydration can increase the amniotic fluid and improve the clarity of your ultrasound. You can also eat or drink something with sugar in it, as your diet permits, about 20 minutes prior to your appointment to get the baby moving.

The earlier the scan, before 24 weeks, the more of the baby you are able to see but with less detail. The later the scan, after 28 weeks, the baby will start to develop a fat layer that fills out the baby’s features which will allow you to see more of the facial detail. The following factors can affect the image quality: baby’s position, size, and movement, maternal tissue, and amount of amniotic fluid. Our recommendation for a 3d/4d ultrasound is between 26-32 weeks. If you are pregnant with twins we recommend before 28 weeks. Is ultrasound safe? Ultrasound is a safe procedure that has been used for decades. It has been used to monitor pregnancies without any evidence of harmful effects to mother or baby. We ask that you consult with your physician prior to scheduling so that he/she may address any concerns that you may have and is also aware that you plan to get an elective ultrasound performed.

  • Am I always going to get a picture of my child's face?

    The cooperation and positioning of the baby is going to be key. Some babies are very photogenic and willing to show it all while others may be more shy and a full frontal face shot may not be possible. The following factors can affect the image quality: baby's position, size, and movement, maternal tissue, and amount of amniotic fluid. We do everything possible to give you the experience you are looking for with the time that is available.
  • What is the best time for a 3d/4d ultrasound?

    This depends on what kind of image you are looking for from 16 weeks to 34 weeks the images will be very different.
