Are there any benefits, other than seeing the baby, to receiving a 3D4D ultrasound?

We recommend you read our 2D/3D/4D ultrasound tab after you read this. The importance and wonder of seeing your baby should not be understated. Bonding with your baby during pregnancy has an immense benefit, and elective (non-medical) 2D/3D/4D ultrasounds may improve bonding between mother and child and also between father and child as well as family and friends. <a href=http://pregnancytreasures.com/3d-4d-ultrasounds.php>3D/4D Ultrasound Information</a>

How accurate is Pregnancy Treasures & Boutique at determining gender?

We are excellent at determining gender and we have a high first time accuracy rate. We are so confident our gender determination package allows 1 free repeat immediately, if you are at least 15 weeks pregnant and we are not 99%+ accurate (cannot be 100% due to insurance).

Does the position of my placenta matter as to how clear the 2d/3d/4d/HD photos may be?

The placenta positon may make a slight difference in your 3D/4D ultrasound session. If you have an anterior placenta, your placenta is on the front side of your womb and in front of the baby. This may cause some images to be less clear and a bit fuzzy. Although we strive to get the best photos, sometimes we may ask "mom" to move her position to attempt to change the position of the baby so the placenta is less of a factor. We recommend scheduling your 3d4d ultrasound before 28 weeks if possible and no later than 30 weeks for best results. If you have a posterior placenta, your placenta is on the back side of the womb and in back of your baby and typically does not interfere with the photos but this is not always the case. We are only concerned about the placenta position for keepsake photos and we are not evaluating nor implying that the placenta position is positive nor negative. We are not saying that Neither an anterior nor posterior placenta does not have any health implications, but typically it does not, so it is not frequently something your healthcare provider will tell you unless you specifically ask. A posterior placenta is ideal for 3D/4D imaging. But because the anterior placenta is in front of the baby it can block portions of the baby's face due to lack of space. So if you have an anterior placenta it is even more important to try to stick to the 27 to 29 week timeframe and maintain good fluid levels.

When is the best time for a 3D4D ultrasound?

Check out our 3d4d calendar to help you decide, it will give you all the info you need. In our experience, the ideal time to get the best images on 3D ultrasound is between 23 and 34 weeks. We have obtained great photos at 39 and 40 weeks but this is not recommended as the larger the baby obtaining good photos is unpredictable. Typically, but not always, after 33 or 34 weeks viewing can be unpredictable. Please note that sometimes after 32 weeks, the baby may have already begun his or her descent to the outside world, and in that case, images may not be obtainable at all. Please check out our Visit our YouTube Channel "Pregnancy Treasures & Boutique" to view our 3d4d paparazzi video. We think it is adorable. 3D/4D Calendar

Do I need a full bladder for my 2D/3D/4D/HD scan?

No not typically. We want to make this experience as pleasurable as possible. We do recommend keeping yourself well hydrated for several days prior to your visit. We suggest you have at least 8 glasses of water each day. This is especially important in the week leading up to your appointment. If not diabetic, Moms may want to have some juice 5-10 minutes before your appointment to get your little one awake and ready for show-time! if over 20 weeks you can go to the restroom once you arrive at our facility before your keepsake ultrasound. If you are under 20 weeks we ask that you try to hold your bladder until we at least start the scan, this is especially true for gender and "heart Beat" or Guppy Beat package.

How important is water duirng my pregnancy for getting good 2d/3d/4d/hd images?

As a mom-to-be, it’s essential to be doubly sure that you're drinking enough water. Always ask your physician for specific amounts of water you should drink during pregnancy for you and your baby's health. We will discuss the essentials of water or hydration for obtaining great keepsake images. In order for an awesome image to be obtained the better hydrated you are, the better opportunity to get those incredible images. It is highly recommended you drink your recommended 6 to 8 glasses of water a day for a few days prior to receiving you keepsake requested ultrasound. Some doctors even recommend more than 8 glasses but you must check with her/him to know your water intake recommendations. Remember water helps your body absorb essential nutrients into the cells and transports vitamins, minerals, and hormones to the blood cells. It's those nutrient- rich blood cells that reach the placenta and ultimately your baby, all with the help of water.

What should I wear to my ultrasound viewing?

We want you to be comfortable so please wear something comfortable to your appointment. Only your belly will be exposed, so wear something that allows for easy access to your belly. Typically dresses are not recommended. We can drape extra blanket for additional privacy, just ask if you have any concerns. Belly rings must be removed prior to session as the metal can scratch our equipment and it is not good to have in during the u/s. thanks.

I have a belly ring, do I have to remove it before the scan?

Yes. Belly rings are metal and they will scratch our equipment and it can interfere with the images. Please remove prior to appointment. thanks

What stage of development is the best for having a 3D/4D session?

Great question and every mother has her own opinion. We encourage you to check out the 3d4d calendar for guidelines and recommendations. There is always "give and take" at each stage of development, but they are all beautiful. That's why many families come more than once. 3D/4D Calendar

Will insurance cover my 3D4D scan?

No. Because 3D ultrasounds provided by Pregnancy Treasures & Boutique are not medical procedures and are not medically necessary, medical insurance does not pay for this service. We accept all major credit cards, debit cards, and cash.

Will my pictures be great like the ones you see on the internet?

The pictures on our site have been taken by our ultrasound technicians using our equipment. Although we cannot guarantee your images will be like the ones on our website, our Facebook, our social media sites, our Visit our YouTube Channell we strive to get you the best possible image. Several factors determine the quality of the ultrasound photos: -Maternal body tissue While the DC 8 Mindray ultrasound machine does allow us to make adjustments, maternal size may be a factor. Therefore, we make the following recommendations: Small framed clients, 5'2" and under: We want your little one to have room to move so we suggest 25-30 weeks for 3D/4D imaging. Fuller figured clients: If the mother is full figured, the sound waves have more tissue to travel through which causes grainier photos therefore 30-34 weeks is best 3D/4D imaging. -Amount of amniotic fluid is critical as Sound waves require fluid to travel through to create the images. The more amniotic fluid you have, the more clear your photos will be. So we recommend you drink the recommended 6 to 8 glasses of water a day for at least 5 days prior to your keepsake elective ultrasound. Another factor is the location of placenta. The location of the placenta is one factor that we cannot change. The placenta can be in front of the uterus, to the back or the side. If the placenta is in the front, it can block the baby's face. -Position of baby If the baby is facing your spine, we will probably only be able to get pictures of the back of the head or possibly a profile. Our technicians will try to reposition you as an attempt to get the baby to move. Having more amniotic fluid will be helpful if this is the case. If you have any questions as to what time may be best for your appointment don't hesitate to call. We're happy to answer any questions you have.

Will you be able to see if anything is wrong with my baby?

We do not look for anything diagnostic this is an elective keepsake ultrasound. We have an American Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (ARDMS) trained in Ob/Gyn & Abdomen. However, Sonographers are not permitted to diagnosis according to Florida practice acts. Therefore, no, we will not be able to determine if anything is wrong with your baby. We will not perform a medical diagnostic scan nor an evaluation during your voluntarily requested 2D/3D/4D/HD ultrasound. This service is purely for family bonding and enjoyment. This ultrasound will not take the place of your medical ultrasound performed by your ob/gyn physician. Pregnancy Treasures & Boutique requires you to be under the care of a physician for your prenatal health. It is highly recommended to read our "terms & conditions"

Will Pregnancy Treasures & Boutique contact my doctor about my 2d/3d/4d/HD ultrsound?

Your keepsake ultrasound is an elective (non-diagnostic) keepsake scan, therefore it is not required to contact your doctor before or after the scan. We require that you are currently under the care of a physician and if you have questions or concerns, it is your responsibility to contact your doctor. Ultrasound technicians, in general, are not permitted to make diagnosis, regardless of the setting. We may, however, contact your doctor if we see something of concern during your scan, but remember we are not looking for anything diagnostic.

How many cloth diapers do I need?

We want you to be successful in your decision to use cloth diapers. With that said, we recommend to have enough supplies for 24 diaper changes in a two day period. So we recommend having a minimum of 24 diaper if using the All in One (AIO) or the Snap in One. If using covers you will need 8 covers and 24 inserts or prefolds. Remember, wash at least every other day and rotate your stash evenly.

How do I wash my cloth diapers?

Cotton babies inc recommends the following. Although many detergents will work well when washing cloth diapers, it is important to find one that effectively cleans your diapers and works well for the needs of your whole family. Laundry detergents that work well for a baby’s regular clothing may also be suitable for cloth diapers. Some detergents contain ingredients such as perfumes, dyes, optical brighteners, and fabric softeners that may leave residue on fabric. In our experience, detergent residue can be problematic for cloth diapers and for little ones with skin sensitivities. If your child seems to be having issues with skin sensitivites, we recommend seeking the advice of a physician. In some cases, you may want to consider an alternate detergent choice. It is recommended to use detergents that clean your diapers well and work well for your whole family. Remember to prewash your new diapers a few times before you use them for best results.
