Im louise, im 22 yrs old and 20 weeks and 6 days pregnant with my first baby. We are expecting a lil girl.
Me and my partner went to our 2nd scan only yesterday to find out the news and that everything is developing fine, her heartbeat is regular and all her organs are perfectly normal aswell as finding out the placenta is not low which apparently is a good thing
Anyway as she was moving around alot on the scan we didnt manage to get very clear photos to show to everyone so we are considering having a 4D scan at around 24/26 weeks.
I just wanted to know if anyone here has already had one as i would love to hear about the experience and whether its worth going ahead with.
Also if anyone knows of the best place to go for prices etc that would be great too.
Many thanks in advance.

Hi Louise ,
i am new here , wanted to congratulate u for ur 1st healthy pregnancy ,
i had a normal scan picture on my 20 weeks scan , really sweaty ,
wish u all good luck
I had one with my first pregnancy at around 20 something weeks - the pics are in my gallery folder, here's an example.
I didn't pay for it as it was part of my usual health care here in Germany, but that also meant that the doctor didn't spend time trying to get a good shot, so it was only about 5 mins long.
I did find it fascinating to see the baby on the screen, but I'm not sure I'd pay for one to be honest. I found it more interesting to see what the baby was like at that stage than to have as a memento of the pregnancy itself, so I'd be quite happy looking at 4-D vids of other babies at a similar developmental age.
i am also interested in this subject as i am keen on this proceedure too.I think its a once in a lifetime thing and can be a special experiance. All the way through my first pregnancy i was continuously worried that something wasnt fine even when they told me it was. So withthis pregnancy i am going to have one as i have a long time to wait and im already paranoid about my babies health.
I used Babybond and they didn't get any decent pictures so a waste of £300 in all, and the people in before and two couples after got the same dissapointing result - we did a lot of toing and froing into the room, drinking eating, walking etc trying to get our babies to move etc to no avail - but maybe you will be lucky there are some great 4d pictures out there so it must work fine for some people
we were also told to take our own music with us but they didn't bother said their whale music would be more atnospheric - I have to watch the dvd with the sound off!!!
we have this 20mn dvd now with a lot of placenta and the 2d bits between the 4d digitisation are by far the best thing on it so maybe get another of those if you can from babybond or similiar, though to be honest soon you will have a wee baby to take tonnes of pictures of and the scan will hardly ever be looked at again so save your pennies and get some cool professional photos of your newborn - or a hand/foot cast - those are cool I hold my wee ones 4 week hand and foot now and they are so realistic and sweet, he is now double their size and I am definitely going to get some more done when he is a year old - we did a clay impression for 6 months and a hand print for 9 months. We also just did a family portrait sitting with my parents and got some really beautiful pictures - expensive though, so do shop around.
