3D/4D Ultrasound

I made my appointment today! September 28. Unfortunately I have to drive almost an hour and a half to get to the appointment, but it should be well worth it! We did this when I was pregnant with my daughter too and it was amazing! I highly recommend it, if you can do it. I have to get my doctor to sign an authorization, which I didn't need last time (though he gave his approval, it just wasn't required), so I have to remember to get that at my next appointment.
Here's what we'll be getting.... more than we'd get if we paid $60 more and went to the place closer to home:
• Complete Limited Diagnostic Ultrasound Session
• Two colorized thermal prints of your baby/babies.
• Gender Determination* (Upon request)
• CD with 15-30 high-resolution 3D still images suitable for
printing and emailing to family and friends.
• DVD video of your ultrasound including: 2D, 3D & 4D segments (as appropriate), set to music
• One year FREE access to BabyPeeks™, a customized online Baby Website. Everything you need to share your pregnancy experience with friends and family online! ($49.95 value)

I think this will be especially good this time because our daughter will be able to clearly see a baby on the screen, moving around. She truly seems to understand the whole "baby brother in Mama's belly" thing and we've told her about how when the baby is big enough Mama will have to go to the hospital so the doctors can take the baby out of Mama's belly. She's very smart... and adorable with how she talks to her baby brother and tells him she loves him. She hugs my belly all the time and sometimes gives him kisses. So I really hope she enjoys this. It might be hard at the appointment, trying to see on the little screen, but we'll be able to put it on the big screen at home and point everything out to her.

Anyways, I'm so excited! I'm pretty sure, based on the profile ultrasound pic, that this little guy looks a lot like my husband. It'll be interesting to see the shape of his face!

That sounds awesome! I hope your little girl loves it. She sounds like a great big sister already!

How cool! It's been so long since we've seen our girl, and the 3D attempt they made at the 20 week u/s didn't turn out too well. I'm kind of liking the surprise factor on her looks, though I do wish we could get one more confirmation between the legs, just to make sure we're having a girl.

I can very much see the advantage for your daughter of doing this, to make her brother seem that much more real.
