What to Expect
Before Your Visit
This is a Non-diagnostic, elective ultrasound, 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! *If you are concerned about your pregnancy, please contact your OB/GYN.
Be sure to 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!
(You DO NOT need a full bladder if you are over 13 Weeks!)
See our list of FAQs should you have any additional questions!
The Day of your visit
PLEASE ARRIVE AT LEAST 10 MINUTES EARLY to your scheduled appointment time to fill out any necessary paperwork. Arriving late may take away from your session time OR result in a reschedule. Also, be sure to bring your photo ID.
- 7-13 Weeks: 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!
Drink approximately 24 oz of fluid 1 HOUR BEFORE your exam without voiding. A full bladder helps the technician obtain a clearer image of baby earlier on. Although ultrasound is considered safe, we try to limit the energy emitted to the fetus 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 forfeit the FREE return. We also DO NOT offer refunds if too early and Gender cannot be determined. 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 is not confident in the determination, we may offer for you to return once at no additional charge. Gender Correct or a FREE 3D4D Session!
- 24-28 Weeks: This is a good time to see your BABY IN ACTION! You can start to see hair after 27/28 weeks and baby opens & closes their eyes!
DISCLAIMER: Babies do tend to 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, milk shake, or ice cold water to get baby to move around more (As long as you do not have any restrictions).
*Please note that our Gender packages focus mainly on gender. 3D/4D images usually take longer to achieve due to baby’s size, etc, therefore, if you already know or are NOT looking to find out, a gender package cannot be purchased to receive a lower price. Keep all of this in mind as you plan your visit for your 3D/4D Ultrasound Session at Sneak Peek 3D. Please do not hesitate to contact us with ANY questions or concerns! Should baby not cooperate, we may offer a redo visit at no additional charge.*
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!
