  • Many OB's don't have them and will only send you for one if the regular sono shows something could be wrong. Other than that some places do them for "entertainment" and recommend waiting until you are at least 4-5 months before getting one

  • My daughter is 22 weeks and got one done at this visit. The doctor said they would do another one at about 32 weeks.

  • They say the "best" time to do them is between 28-32 weeks. They aren't part of standard practice in most places, but the cost runs around $150, around here anyway. My OB does them, and I had several (high risk pregnancy, so they did a lot of ultrasounds and could just flip it over from "regular" to 3D and did just for fun at no cost). The clearest ones were at 30-32 weeks.

  • My doctor's office offers it between 28 and 32 weeks, and $75. Also mostly just for entertainment.

  • I got one done at 20 weeks and another at 31 weeks. Honestly, I would just wait until you are further along. At 20 weeks, they look almost like little aliens - no definitive features, very boney, etc. At 31 weeks? It was awesome! I got mine done at an imaging center and it cost $100.
