We want you to know how excited we are to be on this journey of adoption & we cannot wait to see what is in store for our family. We have so many wonderful plans for our children & we anxiously anticipate the joy that we'll experience as our family grows.

But, not all doctors have the equipment and do them. If you would like your doctor to provide you with this service, simply ask to make sure it is part of the plan. In most cases it will be. When the day comes to have the 3D ultrasound done, you will go into the doctor's office or sometimes in to another location where the equipment is located. They can be performed by your doctor or by an ultrasound specialist. This is determined by where they are done as well.

In most cases, you will simply lie down and the technician will run a device over your stomach. Within minutes, your baby will be displayed on a screen much like a television monitor. Of course, this is not just something to do so that you get a look at your new one, but they are also done as a way to look for problems. In most cases, they are done routinely not because of worries. And, in some cases, they will be done much more, for example if you are at high risk for specific conditions.

The technician will be looking for the baby's growth. They will be looking at the size of the baby as opposed to the expected date of birth. Do they look about right? They will also look at things such as birth defects and to make sure that the baby has everything that they need.

In some cases, the technician will be able to tell you if the baby is a boy or a girl. If they do not tell you, ask if they can tell from the look. If baby is lying right, they may be able to see.

The technician will point out to you certain features of the baby and tell you how to read the 3D images that they will show you. You can watch the entire procedure! At the end, most of the time you will be able to take prints of the pictures home with you for the most amazing first look at your baby, get a 3D ultrasound.
