i had an ultrasound done AT 31 weeks due to pain and stuff..(baby is fine) and durning the ultrasound you could only see parts of him or her at a time because its crouded in there,,,,its much harder to see and i would assumme at 36 weeks it will be even harder!! lol...NOt much longer to go now girll..our time will be here before we know it!! yay
Well, with my son, at 34w3d I had an ultrasoun to check his kidney and I got face shots!!! It depends on the tech really. But I had him at 35w. So maybe you can get one!
Thanks guys - I am just hoping to get a few good shots, but if not - I guess I can wait a few more weeks to see the real thing (I am just so impatient!) I am excited that they are doing another u/s - they said insurance would only cover one - but they are "special ordering" this one.
I had a 4-D one at 36 weeks to check on Aspen's position and got the most AMAZING photo's. If you look my pictures its on like the last page and it is a picture of her face... perfectly formed and EXACTLY what she looked like when she was born. Technology is incredible.
Yeah at 36 weeks they usually do one to check if the baby is head down or breeched! But it is probably some of the best pictures you can get if the tech does it right :)
I haven't had an us sound done this late, but I would think you could get some good shots depending on the babies position. If your baby is head down and quite far down it might be a bit more difficult to see the face. I'm not sure if it is a myth or not but they say your baby drops earlier in the first pregnancy than in other ones. But this is my second nearly term pregnancy and my baby has been well down for about 4 weeks now so who knows. Good luck and i hope you get a good look at your little one (if not it is not long now until you will see him for real).
alaysha - Thanks! I saw your 4-D pic and it was good - I hope Landen's will turn out too - BTW- Aspen's halloween pictures are adorable!
ashiepooh - That is why they are doing the u/s to see how he is positoned and the see how big he was. At 18 weeks they pushed my due date back 2 weeks b/c he was measuring small - so he may have caught up since then.
LACh1 - I haven't dropped yet - but the appointment is still 2 1/2 weeks away. Hopefully he stays up there so we can see him, but if not - you are right - I guess it will only be a few more weeks until I get to see the real thing.
