What to Expect
Before Your Visit
This is a Non-diagnostic ultrasound, and it is recommended that you have already had an 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! *If you are concerned about your pregnancy, please contact your OB/GYN.
STAY HYDRATED in the DAYS or even WEEKS leading up to your appointment. Keeping up on your water intake helps to Increase and clear up the amniotic fluid surrounding your baby! More fluid in front of baby’s face= clearer images! This is especially important for 3D/4D/HD Imaging!
See our list of FAQs should you have any additional questions!
The Day of your visit
PLEASE ARRIVE AT LEAST 10 MINUTES EARLY to fill out paperwork. IF YOU ARRIVE LATE WITHOUT NOTICE, YOU WILL BE ASKED TO RESCHEDULE!
- 7-14 Weeks: Drink approximately 24 oz of fluid 1 HOUR BEFORE your exam without voiding. A FULL BLADDER IS NEEDED & helps the technician obtain a clearer image of baby.
Make sure that you are AT LEAST 7+ weeks! This is important as we do NOT offer a return if it is too early to see!
We try to limit the energy emitted to the fetus in the first trimester by measuring the heartbeat without sound (M-Mode) or by only playing the heartbeat for a brief moment.
- 15+ Weeks: For GENDER DETERMINATION, Visiting sooner than 15 weeks will result in a reschedule without refund. This is important for accuracy as we WILL NOT determine gender unless we are SURE! Sometimes certain factors such as baby’s position or the umbilical cord can hinder the ability to determine gender. While we try to take extra time with these exams and do our best, If our tech cannot confidently determine gender, we offer 1 recheck at no additional charge.

- 22-28 Weeks: This can be a good time to see BABY IN ACTION! Facial features are more developed!
DISCLAIMER: Babies do put hands & legs over their face more often during this time.
- 32+ Weeks: This is a GREAT time to see baby’s facial features, smiles, yawns, etc, as well as seeing baby in HD! We also offer weight estimates and can check if baby has hair! If baby is not usually active during the time of your appointment, you may drink a juice or milk shake (if you do not have restrictions), or bring an ice cold water to get baby to move around.
Keep in mind that every body is different. While our Sonographer will try to get the best images possible, factors such as maternal body habitus, amniotic fluid, placenta, and baby’s position can influence the clarity of your images. At Sneak Peek 3D, we strive to make your experience as memorable as possible. You are welcome to bring in family & friends – We offer plenty of seating both in our ultrasound room and our private back room!
