4D ultrasound

We are doing our 4D US this weekend and i'll be 31 weeks, is that too late? Did anyone already do it that far along? The doctor said the baby might be too big to get nice images

What? Baby is not too big. That's silly. The 3/4D are way better after 30 weeks. If baby isn't hiding, you can get wonderful pictures. My office does them every appt and earlier than 30 things were still sort of blurry and alien looking lol. My 32 week ones look awesome! I could see all the details of her face, little fingers, and her foot. :)

31 weeks is the perfect time for one.  They have just the right amount of fat on them.  I got mine done at 31 weeks and pics turned out great!

I've never been told after a certain week it's not good anymore. My friend who just had her baby had one every week and they turned out fine up to 40 weeks. I have one today for 36 weeks, so I guess we'll see!

I had one last week at 33 weeks. We got good pics but I recommend doing it before 32. I'm sure you will get great pics!!!
