  • I had 3 done in my pregnancy and I loved them!
    I went in at 16 weeks for the sex of the baby, but they couldnt see. So I went back 2 weeks later and found out it was a girl :)
    And then once again at 30 weeks to see her precious face.
    My baby is healthy and fine.
    I did it so many times because I just needed to know she was ok. I had 2 close friends of mine loose babies, one was a physical birth defect, and the other was a stillborn at 8 1/2 months along. So needless to say, I was worried. But it helped calm my anxiety to see that my angel was just fine.

  • I did and I loved it! It is truely amazing. I limited my app to 20 minutes, because I too was leary of harming the baby. There is no more risk of harm than as an ultrasound done at a hospital. I really, really, reccommend it!It's beautiful and soothing and you can invite family members. You get pics and a dvd if you want. I think I paid about 200, it was the middle package, so not bad. I plan on doing it for any future pregnancies. The ultrasound tech will keep trying too until you get a good face shot of your baby. It's amazing because you can really see what your child will look like! Good luck!

  • I didn't have it done because my doctor told me not to get any more ultrasounds than I absolutely needed. I had one at 20 weeks and that was it. I figured by the time you saw anything good, you'd see your baby soon anyway. It's also really expensive, and not all insurances cover it.

  • I had it done with my first and even though I liked the experience of it being able to see her ahead of time. I didn't get it done with this pregnancy, I just felt that it really wasn't worth it.

  • I had a 3D one done with my DD when I was 8 months, it was to check the heart and what not, I LOVED it! Insurance did cover it though...
