During your pregnancy, one of the most exciting things you can do is get a 3D/4D or HD ultrasound. When a new mom sees her baby’s face for the first time, she feels so happy that she can’t put it into words. Women used to have to wait 40 weeks for that amazing moment. Now, we can show you amazing pictures of your baby as it grows and develops, and parents can feel the excitement of seeing clear pictures of their baby as it grows.
There are a lot of things that can change the pictures you get. Most of these things are out of our control (remember, they’re still in the womb!). The Technician might move you around to try to get different angles, but the quality of the picture depends on where the baby is, how much fluid is in the area, and how dense the tissue is. Before getting a 4d baby scan, here are some things we ask our clients to think about and ways to help get the best pictures possible:
When to do a sonogram
This is a very common question, and when deciding when to do a 4d baby scan, there are a few different things to think about.
After 16 weeks, it’s easy to figure out the baby’s gender. At this point, you can see more of your baby and see how quickly it is changing. People often ask us if we can tell the baby’s gender before 16 weeks. We just tested to see how accurate we were before 16 weeks. Even though we were right more often than we were wrong, we didn’t think the accuracy rate was high enough for our standards. The gender of the baby will affect so many important decisions, feelings, and plans. Before we tell you to buy pink and blue, we want to ensure the baby’s growth and the pictures we get.
Drink a lot of water
In the days before your 4d baby scan, drink lots of water. One of the most important things determining the quality of the pictures you get is how well you do this simple task. Like a “window” to see your baby, your amniotic fluid will be better and clearer if you drink water. The pictures will look better if the “window” is clear. Because we want clarity, water is the best choice. It’s important to remember that we’re counting on amniotic fluid instead of water. The water you drink can take days to change into an amniotic liquid. You don’t need a full bladder for these scans, so drink a lot and go to the bathroom often.
Eat something before your meeting
Try to eat something light (like a sandwich, salad, or small bowl of pasta) about 45 minutes to an hour before your appointment. This will get the baby to move around a little bit more.
