  • No it's not a 3D ultrasound. Level 2 ultrasound is where they check the baby's heart, lungs, spinal cord, and do measurments on the fetal parts.

  • It's basically just checking to make sure baby's development is on track. It doesn't require anything special, other than a bit more time.

  • Its the docs way of making sure things are going as they should and that there are no developmental problems especially if your high risk. I had one last month and I go for another on valentines day. Hopefully Ill get to find out what im having lol.

  • That is the ultrasound that tells you the sex of the baby. it checks the anatomy of the baby.
