    4D scan????

    Is it better to get one arounf 26 weeks when baby still has enough room to move about freely or is it better to wait til about the 30wk mark? When he/she will be bigger and features are more defined and can't move about as much?
    We are looking to book one after xmas and were wondering if there is a specific time which is best??

    Well i went for mine at 24 weeks because my OH was leaving with the navy for 5 months and we wanted to get it done before he left.. Surprisingly the pictures, i thought, were really good but the sonographer offered us to come back again for a rescan anyway.
    When i asked her when she thought the best time to have it done she said about 27-28 weeks.x

    Bumpy, the picture you have there is amazing!!

    I really want a 4D scan - would love to see LO again as I have had my last NHS scan... but it seems like a lot of money and I don't think OH will go for it :-(

    We are going when I'm 16 weeks so we can try to get a jump on knowing the gender. Isn't that awful? We just can't wait..... :blush:
