    Default 3-D Ultrasounds

    This was by far the coolest thing I have ever seen in my life. The Wife and I went down to Toronto yesterday and had this done. It's brings things into a much more realistic view. You can actually see the baby smiling and damn near anything you want. Any up and comer parents, I would highly suggest getting this done if it's available in your area. Definitely go before we did. They suggest 28 weeks but we went at 36. Here's a couple photo's:

    Because of the cost and unnecessary nature of 3-D ultrasounds, they are typically reserved here in the United States for assessment of birth defects or suspected birth defects. They work great in assessing cleft pallets, Spina Bifida, Down's Syndrome, and other issues when you may need to determine a lot of issues that can be treated in first few days of birth or that can be repaired in-utero.

    It's definitely cool. I will try and get this done probably for every child after this one too. And Thank You.


    DaSharkie I can see where that would be usefull in determining that stuff. Your right it is quite costly too. It was worth it though.

    I wish you well in rearing the rug rat.


    Another thing that popped up on me..................Sort of takes the surprise out of seeing what the li'l runt is going to look like when it says "I'm here!"

    Because of my wife's nearly intolerable suffering during her high risk second pregnancy, one of the "perks" was that the OB wanted us to have one of these so insurance took care of it. It was pretty neat, to say the least, and at least a minor reward for a horrible pregnancy. At least the end product was worth the suffering, according to the wife. I like the kids too, but I didn't have to endure what she did.

    Good looking kid by the way.
