Elective Gender Ultrasound

Gender Ultrasounds. What you should know.

SEE post

Are you carrying the baby high or low? Is the heart rate fast or slow? There is no shortage of wives' tales when it comes to determining baby's gender. Chinese Gender Charts and Ring Tests are all fun ways to guess at what baby might be. However, your best option to determine your baby's gender before 16 weeks is by blood testing through your medical care provider. After 16 weeks gender can be determined by a skilled sonographer if baby is cooperative. At Love View we do not recommend having a gender ultrasound until at least 16 weeks. In the early stages of development babies have a structure called a genital tubercle this structure is often mistaken for male genitalia. Baby's gender is determined at the moment of conception, but it isn't until 16 weeks that gender can be accurately assessed visually. The Second Trimester is an exciting time to have an elective ultrasound. Baby is starting to get well defined facial features and is active because there is still plenty of room to move. All pregnancies are different, but most moms are feeling flutters by 20 weeks. Watching baby move and correlating those movements with what you are seeing on ultrasound is fascinating. A sneak peak in 3D 4D ultrasound can result in a skinny but cute facial image. 3D/4D Ultrasound Sessions after 26 weeks will produce pictures with fuller cheeks because now baby is steadily gaining weight

"We absolutely loved our experience at Love View. At first our baby would not co-operate with pictures but Samantha was sweet and understanding. She was able to get our baby to roll over and let us see her entire face. I will definitely be back for another Ultrasound."

"I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to get a 3D-4D ultrasound! They were very nice and the viewing screen in the room was huge. I had six family members with me and they made sure we were all comfortable and had great viewing of our little boy."

Have Any Questions?

We’d love to talk about how Love View can help you meet your newest family member.

What is the difference between 2D, 3D, 4D and HD Live ultrasound?
Does an ultrasound at Love View take the place of an ultrasound at a doctor’s office?
No, absolutely not. A 3D/4D Ultrasound at Love View will not take the place of a diagnostic study done by your doctor’s office.  Our ultrasounds are for bonding and viewing your precious baby. To have an ultrasound with us you must be receiving care from a licensed medical professional and have already had a diagnostic ultrasound.
When is the best time to have my 3D/4D ultrasound?
We are happy to image your little one at any time after 10 weeks. The best time for a 3D/4D Ultrasound is 24-34 weeks. However, it is possible to get adorable images of baby before and after the recommended time frame. Earlier imaging can provide you a glimpse of your baby’s amazing development. Later imaging done once baby has started to gain weight will provide more detailed facial images and cute little hands and feet.
Will I get perfect images of my baby at every session? ​
It is our mission at Love View to provide you with a session that is both memorable and filled with great images of baby. We will make every effort to get beautiful images. However, there are a few things that are beyond our control. Baby’s overall position, the amount of amniotic fluid, the position of baby’s arms and legs, and Mommy’s body tissue. These things can have an effect on the clarity and content of the images. Please rest assured we will do everything we can get the best images possible. If we are unable to see baby’s face at a 3D/4D session or if we are unable to determine gender during a Little Man or Little Miss session we will happily schedule you for a re-look.
Will my family and friends be able to come?
We are able to comfortably accommodate up to 6 people other than Mommy. We also provide a complimentary live streaming service for loved ones who are unable to attend.
What can I do to give the best chance of good images?
Stay Hydrated! You can make sure you are drinking plenty of water for several days before your session. It is also helpful if you have a light snack right before your session for example fruit or fruit juice
