    Im having my 4d scan on weds! Cant wait!!! :)

    The scan centre told me that the best time is between 24-28 weeks as the baby is well developed by this time but also still have room to move which makes it easier to get good images xxxx

    I was told by the company around 28 weeks, if you want to actually get a close comparison to what they will look like in real life. they've put a lot of the weight on their faces by then but they still have enough room to move and aren't squashed up.

    My avatar is 28 weeks and the picture below is 21 weeks for comparison

    I've just noticed you're in wigan Ange, so am I. We went to take a peek in off the M58 near Aintree. Search for takeapeek to find their website. Took about 20 minutes to get there.

    I was advised 28 weeks so that's when i have one booked. As well as the joys of getting to see my baby, I also booked this scan simply because I want to check on his/her wellbeing.

    Bumpbear - My dh feels the same way as you. He says he really doesn't want to see baby looking like that so think it will just be me and my ds.

    3d is the still picture and 4d is the actual moving image.

    I have mine tomorrow morning at 9:30! :)
    They told me best time was around 27-30 weeks.
    Afte 30 weeks babies get a little tight in there and squished.

    I had it done at 27 weeks, and it was the GREATEST thing ever. He was so beautiful and it was such an amazing experience. :thumbup:

    My avatar is my 3D. and the 4D video was amazing. :)
    to watch him making faces, was so funny!
