It kind of depends on how babes feels on the day…..
I had a 3D one done before DS was born, and I have to say, apart from the fact that he didn’t want to play ball, and look into the camera 🙄 it was great fun. The 2D shows the outline of the baby, but the 3D is great, especially if you get to see the little face!November 11, 2010 at 5:57 pm #104316KateMember
What is 4D?
I had a 3D (in the Lourdes, they have a secret one!!) on DS. It was brilliant but a little CG ish, didn’t look real. We only got to see on screen no photos or video.November 11, 2010 at 8:15 pm #104322chewieodieParticipant
I got the printouts etc….
as far as I’m aware, the 4D is even more detail….November 11, 2010 at 10:01 pm #104326AlmaeMember

I got a 3d scan done when i was pregnant with ds, i thought it was amazing and so did dh, could see him moving around and facial features and his hand going into his mouth. got a dvd and about 6/8 pics aswell. didnt get it done on dd as we couldnt justify the expense of it, I had gone part-time in work and we just didnt have the moneyNovember 11, 2010 at 10:31 pm #104331
i heard if you drink a sugary drink about an hour before you scan to get the babs movingNovember 12, 2010 at 3:51 pm #104396scole1Member

i had 3d done on both my pregnancys, first one was a disaster, as u know sabbi my daughter was born very sick and the 3d scan 6 weeks prior to this completely missed it, i know they are very clear in not offering a medical scan but i always wonder how the hell did they miss the massssssive probs on my daughter, also in this clinic i had to go and have mcdonalds milkshake n try and wake baby and then return another day to get it re done and both times they missed the signs, i mean not to notice that at over 30weeks the baby was only 1lb?? anyway on my 2nd i was reffered to another place and they were amazing, they are all specifically trained and all scans are seen by the dr from the rotunda who specialises in nuchal scans n stuff, i was in for over and hour and they showed me everything, even the baby drinking and having a wee pee!!! i got the dvd and it was soooo clear, she even had the hiccups during it, no carry on with fizzy drinks n stuff either!!
def would recommend it regardless of my first experience, suppose just stress the lack of medical knowledge in some places and to check out options xxNovember 12, 2010 at 10:30 pm #104410JaeMember
