  • When I had my 3-D done a couple weeks ago, it was alot like the 2D but you get to see everything up so close. We got to see all of her features and everything about her. We have a CD with over 80 pictures and 2-5sec video shots of the baby. Its awesome. It is totally worth it. I LOVED IT!!!

  • the vaginal question, would be answered by... if this is a routine you ask for it ultrasound, or are they doing it for diagnosing something... if it is routine, they shouldn't do it vaginally, but if you are there for diagnosis or other info, then yes- they will probably do it both ways.

  • Well I hope they do it the way I am used to because the vaginal way just doesn't sound comfortable at all...but then again pregnancy isn't supposed to be comfortable lol!

    Yeah they didn't let me do the 3-D with my first child so this is exciting :)

  • My OB does it but they said that I could go to the mall and do it but it's really really expensive there! $255 for a full package! Isn't that crazy?
