Best time for 3D/4D Ultrasound?

When is the best time to go for the fancy 3D/4D ultrasound? I want to make sure he isnt too skinny (too early) or too crowded (too late).

Mar - We did ours right at 29 weeks and it was perfect! Baby had enough room (and enough fat on him) to give us some awesome images :-)

We had ours at 34 weeks, though you can get one sooner and still get amazing photos.

We were told around 32 weeks was best, but we had ours at about 28 (29?) because the boys were running out of room and they wanted to make sure that we got good shots

We did ours at 29 weeks and got some good pictures, but DD was partially hidden behind some placenta. A girlfriend also did her's at 29 weeks (at the same place) and got amazingly clear pictures. She has had her baby and you can totally tell it's the same baby. There was chart on the website of the place were we went that outlined when to go. It says...


weeks 15-23- gender and good peek at your baby's whole body


24-27- good time to see facial definition


28-32- best time to peek at your baby's face


33-37- space is getting tight but you can still get some good facial shots
