  • My doctor told me around 24-26 weeks. You dont want too little amniotic fluid.. it really helps with the pictures.
    With my first my hospital was just getting a 3D machine ( I lived in a small town) so i got one at 30 weeks. It did not turn out at all!!

    With this one i didnt get one, but the doctor said if i were going to to get it done around 24-26 weeks for the best pictures. :D

  • thats too early.. the places that actually do the 3/4d ultrasounds will tell you the best is between 28-34 weeks.

    i got it done at 29 and my babygirl looks awesome!!! you have to increase your water intake for like 3 days before you get it done, that helps the pictures come out better as well and avoid cafeine in those three days too..

  • I just got mine done at 31 weeks and it was great! it was my mother's day present, the pictures were great even though the baby slept through the whole ultrasound.

  • Later on in the pregnancy when the baby is more mature.
