We had heard a lot about 4 D scans but did not know where it is done. By the time we started consulting at Cloudinine hospital I was in my 27th week, so the doctor told me that’s it’s very difficult to see the baby in 4 D as the placenta almost covers the baby.
What is 4D scan, from Wikipedia:
4D fetal ultrasounds are similar to 3D scans, with the difference associated with time: 4D allows a 3-dimensional picture in real time, rather than delayed, due to the lag associated with the computer constructed image, as in classic 3-dimensional ultrasound.
4D scans are best seen between 24 to 26 weeks. But, seeing the disappointment on our faces, the doctor tried capturing the baby in 4D, we were able to see from one angle.
It was so cute, he rotated the baby’s half body, it was unbelievable. I think people who have had a complete 4D scan will know better.
After we came home we stared and stared at the picture. We even used a magnifying glass to see how my baby looks. I was quite sure it’s a girl as the baby’s face in the 4D scan resembled my husband a lot.
It’s fun to see your baby is 4D scan, it’s not very expensive. I think its 1500 Rs.
