What To Expect
Before Your Visit
This is a Non-diagnostic, elective 3D/4D 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 PLENTY OF WATER 1-2 weeks leading up to your appointment.Staying hydrated helps clear up the amniotic fluid and may help obtain better images of baby’s face! This is especially important when capturing 3D/4D images 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.
- 15+ Weeks: For GENDER DETERMINATION, you must be at least 15 weeks. Visiting sooner than 15 weeks will result in a return visit at another scheduled time and an additional charge.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, again, it is not guaranteed 100%. If our tech is not confident in the determination, we may offer a free return.
- 26-38 Weeks: This is a great time to see your baby’s facial features in detail, and sometimes, hands 🙂 . This is also a good time to see 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 another visit at NO additional charge.
*Keep all of this in mind as you plan your visit for your 3D ultrasound appointment at Sneak Peek 3D, and Please do not hesitate to contact us with ANY questions or concerns!
