Do You Like 3D Ultrasounds?

baby ultrasound Today we had an ultrasound and to my surprise, the black and white image turned into a 3D look at our baby. To tell you the truth, it was hard to make out much while looking at the screen but then the tech printed a few stills and I was stunned at how detailed the images were. At first it took me back a little bit. I couldn’t believe I was seeing what our baby looked like without him even leaving the womb. Ever since I knew I was pregnant (heck, ever since I met my husband) I’ve wondered what our kids would look like and the answer was sitting right in front of me. I was studying every detail.

The first thing I definitely noticed was his nose which is prominent just like his mom and dad. Then I noticed how much he already looks like my husband, very much a boy. If we hadn’t found at the sex I for sure would have known after seeing his picture today.

During our wait for the doctor, I found myself just staring at the three images (that is when my husband wasn’t hogging them). And the more I looked at them, the more I got over the initial shock and I felt more attached to this little baby than I’ve felt the entire pregnancy. This is my son and I love him so much. I even told my husband while walking back to the car that I just wanted him to come out now.

So do I like 3D ultrasounds? At first it seemed weird and like it was ruining a bit of the surprise and wonder but now I’m happy I got a better glimpse at him today because it made me even more excited to meet him.

Have you had a 3D ultrasound? What did you think?
