Are you carrying the baby high or low? Is the heart rate fast or slow? There are 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 movement 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 images. 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."
