  • you can find out what your having around 10 weeks and up if the baby is posistioned right and it normally costs around $150

  • Btw, getting a 3D sonogram done earlier than 20 yes can probably determine the sex but the facial pictures of the baby are not going to be as cute as if you wait. 3D places suggest you wait until closer to 30 weeks when the features are more developed. You'd be getting pictures of an alien-looking baby at 16 weeks.

  • Around here it's around $150, but I agree with the PP - the money would be much better spent if you wait until between 28-32 weeks when you can really see your baby and he/she will look like a cutie! I had numerous ones throughout my pregnancy, I was high risk and my drs office had a 3D so every couple of weeks when they were looking at her heart they would flip over to the 3D and let me look at her. The best pics were at 30-32 weeks. And, if you do an early 3D at 16 weeks there is no guarantee that baby will be in the right position. You could spend the $150 and still not know the sex. I would wait!

  • at my doctors it $95 and isnt recommended till about 28 or more weeks. Why ruin the suprise by paying your way through everything? just wait till the time is right
