    I wanted a 4D sexing scan as they are more reliable but it would appear for most places you need to wait til 24 weeks for a 4D scan. anyone had one before this?

    Also how reliable are 2D sexing scans?

    I had my 4D scan at 20 weeks exactly. They did the sexing with 2D and said girl switched over to 4D and confirmed it. I got great pics with her too, just the longer you wait the fatter baby is really no other difference.

    Is 4D like 3D???
    I had a video and some 3D pics taken at 19weeks (unexpected - they just did it at my halfway scan). Anyway I thought they turned out SOOO good! Avatar is one of the pics!
    :D

    hi hun ive had 4d scan @ 9+4wks...13+6wks and 17wks and im goign again on sunday @19+2wks and then again @24wks. Ive previusoly hd one @22wks as well.

    Now i use in gender which has a sonograpghy on site...

    Is 3D or 4D better for assessing Gender?

    In my opinion, No. I find that the surface rendering program can include things that make it more boyish/girlish. It can also exlude things. A puffy scrotum can look like a labia. Tricky Tricky. I prefer 2D for gender.

    Now ive used 4 different private scanning places over the year well the last 5 and i have to say they all check in 2d... even my pregnancy now where ive already had 3 4d scans they check gender in 2d then switch to 4d to do pictures xx

    Hope this helps. x

    I had a 4D scan as part of my gender ultrasound at 20 weeks. It was fine - we got some great pics! Only thing is we couldn't see the baby's face cause she had it hidden. The baby also looked a bit skinny cause at that stage they haven't started putting on a lot of fat yet.

    From what I read, 4D differs from 3D in that it is a moving, video image as compared to a still, three-dimensional shot (3D). The extra dimension (moving video) makes it 4-dimensional as opposed to three-dimensional.
