Before Your Ultrasound

Preparing For Your Ultrasound

Drink plenty of water several days before your appointment to ensure the amniotic fluid is clear. About 30 minutes before your appointment, try and drink cold water or juice to try and wake the baby during your sessions (unless recommended otherwise by your physician)

What you can Expect with a 3D Ultrasound

With a 3D ultrasound, a series of images are taken in a variety of angles, and these images are then pieced and merged together so they can form a 3-dimensional, completely realistic rendering of your unborn baby. This allows you to then see your baby’s entire face and more with detail.​​

  • How can I get the best possible 3D/4D pictures?
    Most doctors recommend maintaining a healthy fluid intake, especially during pregnancy. This will help to ensure amniotic fluid is clear and full as well. There are many things that are out of a sonographers control like the baby's position, the mothers skin type and build, the amount of amniotic fluid, etc. Guidelines for Getting the Best Possible Pictures: Drink 10-12 cups of water each day. If you're not already doing this, you'll need to start a week BEFORE your appointment! Drinking a ton of water the day off will just fill your bladder. Spread out. your water intake throughout the day. Your body will absorb the fluid better than if you try to chug down all your water at once
