Is the ultra sound worth the price?

i really really want another ultrasound done. I've had one when i was like 14 weeks, and it was so cute! im on medicad so they pay to have one done.... But there is a ultra sound place here and they are having a special for the spring

this is for $99
15-minute 3D/4D Ultrasound Session
6 COLOR prints
2 black & white prints
Mommy’s Brag Book (to showcase your prints!)
Return Visit discount during the same pregnancy.
Add the CD or DVD for an additional $20 or BOTH for only $29!


I would have to pay for it out of pocket, hubby really wants it done to. But I'm already 29 weeks should i just wait it out and see the baby when shes here???
What did you do?

  • I wouldn't do it. Ultrasounds should only be done when medically necessary. There are risks.

  • Do it! You get to see the baby before she or he, is really here! Its so beautiful, and cool to see your baby and here it's heartbeat!

  • 99 is cheap actually, do it if you want to.

  • those 4D ultrasound places freak me out. However yes, the price is right. In reality though u should do ultrasounds when/if your dr wants one done. Not to take advantage of a sale at a uterine portrait studio.

  • $99 is a great price!
    We had ours done at 15 weeks and again last weekend (29 weeks) It was so great to see all those little baby face features. It really made us feel closer to him. Also was great for our boys to actually SEE their new baby brother. Really made it click that there is truly a baby in my belly.

  • don't know, i guess if you want it done do it, our doc did ours and we had several copies and you could tell really well who the baby looked like, but i was happy with just that
