Visits: 303

Preparing for your first visit to a 3D or 4D Ultrasound Studio can be an exciting moment in your pregnancy. It can perhaps be the first and only time when you get high-resolution images or videos of your baby before the big day. With the technology today having gone through massive improvements you can see fine details and moments that were never before possible. But is it important to still prepare for your 3D/4D ultrasounds in the days and weeks leading up to the appointment to allow your Ultrasound specialist to get the highest quality ultrasounds.

Here are some tips to get the most from your 3D ultrasound.

#1 Schedule the Ultrasound at the end of the 2nd or start of the 3rd trimester. Before the 2nd trimester, you can certainly still do 3D ultrasound, but the ultrasound might not be as detail-oriented as you would like. This is due to the development of the baby. Many times people want to see the expressions, facial features, and details in the lips and eyes. The later you wait for the ultrasound the more details you can capture.

#2 Schedule the ultrasound at a good time of day. This is subjective and unique to each pregnancy but ideally, you want to do a 3D ultrasound or 4D ultrasound when the baby will be most active. This is especially true with 4D video ultrasound. By the 3rd trimester, you will naturally be aware of which times your baby is most active, and whether it be morning, noon, or evening you should schedule your appointment at your local 3D/4D ultrasound studio during these times

#3 Drink plenty of fluids. This is general advice for the duration of your pregnancy but especially true relating to ultrasound. Around 2 weeks before the ultrasound take extra care to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. The amniotic fluid that surrounds the baby will be clearer if you are better hydrated. This allows for higher resolution ultrasounds. Then you will be able to see the details in your baby’s development with better clarity that will last a lifetime.

    You make a great point about getting 4D video ultrasound. I need to get an ultrasound of my pregnant wife. She is about 3 months pregnant.
