  • I wanted to get it done so bad with my son but around the time i was going to get it done i had my son (2 months early) so i ended up being glad i didnt because i got the real thing :) and i was a high risk pregnancy so i had many u/s and pictures. But i think it you dont get alot od U/S i think it would be neat. my sis got them for both her children, i like it.

  • My OB does 3D/4D standard, and I see a HUGE difference between the quality. With the 3D, I could make out features at 14 weeks. They also did a regular shot, and it just looks like blobs to me. Depends on how much extra cash you got floating around, but the quality is definitely way cooler.

  • Tess would not show her face when I went to get mine done, just giving the tech her money shot LOL!! I paid $25 to go a second day, and she was more cooperative after my belly was prodded a while.

    I really enjoyed seeing her, but I haven't bothered to watch the video in the two years since she was born. The real thing is so much better!
