4D Ultrasound at 16 weeks?

I plan on having a 4D ultrasound at 30 weeks, but my spouse and I were considering also having 4D ultrasound done at 16 weeks to try to get a sneak peek at the gender. Anybody ever done this? Anyone have any 16 weeks 4D pics??

  • I tried but they wont give you one til you have your second trimester ultra sound with your OB to screen for problems with the baby. So I am getting my regular ultra sound with my OB at 2 on August 19th and then my 4D ultra sound at 6 the same day lol. I will be 21 weeks, hoping for a boy wish me luck lol

  • honestly i wouldnt do it because they dont even trust the 4d for gender they only rely on the 2d for that so i would just get an regular 2d u/s for gender and wait for the 4d at 30wks you will get awesome pictures i did!

  • Why would you waste your money?

  • I have had 4D done at each ultrasound because I am high risk, although I did not purchase/get the photos. The picture is amazing but I would wait until at least 20-25 weeks because I had mine done and was told it was a different sex each time! So save your money and wait.

  • I think I did one around that time. I never asked my ob just did it. And it didn't cost anything for me
