What is the best time for 3D ultrasound?

The best time to get a 3D ultrasound is between 24 and 32 weeks since by 33 weeks, your baby will have descended into your pelvis, making it more challenging to capture clear images.

Your baby is way smaller than a seed when you figured out you were having a little one. The baby was more definitely smaller than a raspberry by the time you had your first 2D dating ultrasound. By the time you have your anatomy scan at 20 weeks, a banana will be the fruit equal to your baby’s height.

The ultrasound picture gets increasingly obvious as the baby increases in size, going from a tiny lump to a bona fide baby. The longer you wait to have a 3D ultrasound, the more accurate and beautiful your baby will look in the image, in the same way.

So when is the best time to get a 3D ultrasound that your family will always treasure?
