Are 3D sonograms really worth it? Did you get one? How far along were you when you did?

I want to get one but Im not sure when I should get it and if you thought it was worth it?

  • Yes its worth it! I had one done at 31 weeks. He looked great! Has huge chubby cheeks and his daddys nose. We watched him yawn and suck on his umbilical cord. It was so much better than a normal ultrasound. But wait until 3rd trimester cause otherwise they are too skinny and look like an alien not a baby

  • I think they're freaky looking and never think they're cute so I didn't want one

  • I got a bunch because I was high risk and had ultrasounds every month. They just did it for me for free. They are nice, because when I compare the pics to my dd, you can really see how good they are. With that being said, I wouldn't have paid extra for it because while they were fun to look at and nice to have, it wasn't worth paying extra for.

  • When I had my 22 week ultrasound done at our hospital they did a 3D one at the end. Personally I think the 3D pictures look really creepy and like an alien, so if I had to pay extra for it, I definitely would not have chosen to do so. They gave us a bunch of the 3D pics, too, and I would have rather had more of the normal looking ones.
