What to Expect
Before Your Visit
This is a Non-diagnostic, elective ultrasound appointment and it is recommended that you have already had an ultrasound and/or initial visit with your OB/GYN prior to your visit with us. We do not offer any medical advice or diagnosis pertaining to your pregnancy.
Please keep in mind that every body is different, and while our Sonographer will try to get the best images possible, factors such as body habitus, amniotic fluid, placenta, and baby’s position can influence the clarity of the images. At Sneak Peek 3D, we strive to make your experience as memorable as possible. You are welcome to bring in family & friends as well. We offer plenty of seating both in our ultrasound room and our private back room.
Be sure to DRINK! DRINK! DRINK! PLENTY OF WATER in the DAYS or even WEEKS leading up to your appointment. Staying hydrated helps Increase and clear up the amniotic fluid! More fluid in front of baby’s face= clearer images! This is especially important when capturing 3D/4D later on in pregnancy!
Here is a list of our FAQs should you have any additional questions!
The Day of your visit
PLEASE ARRIVE AT LEAST 10 MINUTES PRIOR to your scheduled appointment time to fill out any necessary paperwork. Arriving late may take away from your session time. Also, be sure to bring your photo ID.
- 7-14 Weeks: Drink approximately 20 oz of fluid 1 hour before your exam without voiding. This helps the technician obtain a clearer image of baby earlier on in your pregnancy. For early visits, baby is extremely tiny. Although ultrasound is safe, we try to limit the energy emitted to the fetus by measuring the heartbeat without sound (M-Mode) or only playing the heartbeat for a brief moment.
- 15+ Weeks: For GENDER DETERMINATION, you must be at least 15 weeks. Visiting sooner than 15 weeks can result in a return visit at another scheduled time and an additional charge. We do NOT offer a free return for gender earlier than 15 weeks! This is important for accuracy although the gender is not 100% guaranteed. Sometimes factors such as baby’s position or the umbilical cord can hinder the gender determination. While we try to take extra time with these exams and do our best, If our tech is not confident in the determination, we may offer 1 free return.
- 28-39 Weeks: This is the best time to see your baby’s facial features in detail as well as expressions, yawns, sucking, smiling, etc. In cases where images are difficult to achieve due to placenta or baby’s position, we may try having you change positions or get up and walk around. We may also suggest juice or a milk shake prior to your visit to get the baby moving around. Once again, if baby is not cooperative, we may offer 1 free return at NO additional charge.
*Keep all of this in mind as you plan your visit for your 3D/4D ultrasound appointment at Sneak Peek 3D, and Please do not hesitate to contact us with ANY questions or concerns!
