the inside scoop- 3D Ultrasound Pregnancy Journey
One of the greatest gifts I have received since opening Perfect Timing Ultrasound is watching along as my niece grows and develops. My sister is due in December and Kristen and I have had the privilege of tagging along on her pregnancy journey! From seeing her first 2D ultrasound to doing her gender determination scan, to seeing her beautiful little face in HD Live technology during her 3D ultrasound .. it’s something I will treasure forever.
Being able to provide this service to my sister has been incredible! I know what its like to pray every day to get through the first trimester only to realize that, even at 14 weeks, I still don’t know how my baby is doing! Showing my sister her healthy, squirmy baby at 15 weeks was such an honor. Watching Kristen diligently scan so we could accurately determine the baby’s gender was riveting! I was so excited and nobody even cared either way what the gender was. It was just so FUN to find out and make the hushed announcement.. hushed because my sister and brother in law had very special plans for their reveal! It was so awesome to be in on the secret and help them plan!
My sister came in at 18 weeks, 4 days for a quick drop in to see how baby girl was doing. After scanning for bit, we decided to scan with 3D/4D ultrasound. Not only were we able to see her move and stretch, but we were even able to see the perfect little details of her face! I’m well versed in fetal development and all things 3D ultrasound, but it was still just so amazing to see how far my little niece had come! My family and I watched in awe as the newest family addition-to-be kicked and turned. When we listened to her heart beating, all bets were off, tears galore! Thank God for my 3 yr old son who kept repeatedly yelling, “Aunty look, that’s the baby’s head!!” – it wasn’t lol so that helped us regain composure.
I have to say that the best part, by far, was my sister’s 29 week, 3D ultrasound! Seeing her baby girls’ sweet face…seeing my sisters’ likeness in that little face.. This aunty-to-be will cherish that forever! Each day that passes brings us just a little bit closer to that December due date, and we cannot wait!
