Why do we want to make sure you are drinking WATER? Well, keeping your body hydrated is always important but especially during pregnancy. For this conversation we are going to stick to why it is important for your ultrasound images. It's all about Physics. Fun Right? Ultrasound works using high frequency soundwaves and their echoes to create the image on the screen. Soundwaves act differently when traveling through different materials. For instance, structures that are made up of fluid will appear black on the screen and structures that are solid like bone will appear bright white. Sound waves tend to scatter when there are gasses or air in their path which makes a fuzzy image. That is why ultrasound techs use gel, to eliminate the air between the probe and your skin. Okay, so if you are still with me, drinking the daily recommended amount of water will keep tissues, like skin and muscle, well hydrated. This allows the sound to penetrate your tissues without scattering creating a crisp smooth image. Now you know ladies! Go load up on your favorite bottled water, warn your kidneys, get a night light in your bathroom and let's make some pretty images together.
"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."
We’d love to talk about how Love View can help you meet your newest family member.
