3d ultrasound during 3rd trimester

Dh's christmas gift to me was making a 3/d ultrasound appointment to see ds before he's born. Has anyone else had a 3/d ultrasound towards the end of your pregnancy? Is it worth the expense?
I am very excited and would love to see ds, but we are pretty strapped for cash currently and I'm worried it may be a let down.. At his last one he had his face buried in the placenta the whole time, that was at 16 weeks. What is it like at 32 weeks?

I'm unsure, but bump to follow. I want to do one of our little girl @ 35 weeks. I'm 26 weeks on Monday.

I went at 24 weeks. Kinda to early but the longer you wait the harder it is to see babys face. I went another time late and with the head down it was hard to get a visual of her face.

I do 3d scans and the ideal time in my opinion is 30-34 weeks so you're right there! At our office if for some reason we don't get any good shots we bring you back on us for another try. Make sure you're really hydrated but you don't need a full bladder. Good luck!

I got one with DD done right around 30 weeks. It was very cool but I am not sure I will do it again this time. We have to have lots of ultrasounds and lately they have been showing me 3d images at the hospital where I have the ultrasounds done. My next ultrasound is at 30 weeks so we will see if they do it again.
