How many weeks were you when you had it? Were you happy with what you could see? Just trying to work out when to book one so baby looks like he should and not like a weird alien/grinch type thing! :)

I had a little bit of 4d scanning as part of a gender scan at 16 weeks. J looked odd and ugly, and I was a bit freaked out! So probably later than 16 weeks would be my advice!

We had a peek at our 17 week scan, that's when he looked like the grinch!
To be honest they freak me out a bit, but H really wants one so we're having one.

I had mine at 26 weeks OB, can flash if you like. Was a proper baby, but still a little alien to me. A lady at work flashed her granddaughters at 33 weeks, was much more baby like but was quite squished in there. Somewhere in between would be good x
I think peak time is 25-28 weeks so they're not too big but formed just tiny

Yes please MrsP! (Have I seen it already?! Sorry if I have and I've forgot!).
Thanks missus S :)

I had one at 25+3. He did look like a little baby moving about on the screen, definitely. In the 3D photos I think he does look like a baby, but it's not like those clear photos from medical textbooks kind of thing.
Next time I'd maybe wait a little longer, unfortunately that was the only weekend appt they had but if possible I'd go for closer to 28 weeks next time.

The DVD was clearer than the pics, but he was fast asleep for 90% of it so not the most exciting. Maybe 28 weeks would be the way to go x
I've seen it, thanks Saisi! He looks very much like a baby :)
Do you think he looked how he looked on the the scan when he was born? Or similar?
28/10/2013 at 12:03
Ahh look at those little fingers! This one never seems to sleep so hopefully that won't be a problem. Thanks for showing me :) x
Yeah, I think he did look like he did on the scan. But mind you I do kind of think most babies look the same at the newborn stage. There's a few babies in my tri group where I thought they looked similar to A in some photos, but now they're completely different and no longer look alike at all.

I think I was 29 weeks. It was a horrible picture and looks nothing like her! My sister had one and it really does look like her baby.

Had ours at 20/21 weeks, pics are nice but would have been better if we had waited a little longer. Baby did look a bit alien like

I had mine at 29+5, one of the pics is my fb profile pic

We had ours at 28 weeks and it was ideal. I will try and add a picture for you. He looks just like he did in his scan now I think. The idea of them freaked me out a bit as well but it was amazing, I loved it :) the pics we got were mainly close ups of his face as we didn't want to find out the sex so the scan lady didn't venture too far south ;)

Thanks everyone for showing me your pics!
I’ve remembered I’ve got a growth scan at 28 weeks, so would you go for the 4D at 26/27 or 30 weeks?
