7 Reasons to Get a 3D4D Ultrasound.jpg

At Hey Baby Ultrasound, we offer reliable 3D/4D baby ultrasounds for future mothers in the Seattle area. 3D/4D ultrasounds are unique as they allow you to see the entirety of your baby’s face, torso, and limbs instead of seeing a profile picture. 4D ultrasound will enable you to see your baby’s full image in real-time, moving inside the womb, much like a videotape. This is much different from a “traditional” 2D ultrasound and creates a more immersive, closer experience with your baby.

Gender reveal sign

Having a baby is one of the most important phases of your life. Finding out the gender of your baby’s (potentially multiple babies) gender is one of the most exciting times of the pregnancy. Gender reveal parties are a great way to share that excitement with your loved ones. Here are a few cute and fun themes to reveal your baby’s gender.

Gender Reveal Pillows

Having a pillow fight with your significant other or your friends is already a sweet and playful activity to do. For a gender reveal party, have somebody fill a pillowcase with pink or blue colored feathers, depending on what the gender is, of course.

Balloon Box

A gender reveal balloon box is extremely easy, and it still keeps the surprise! Have one of your friends fill a decorated cardboard box with balloons that match the gender of the baby. Simple, exciting, and charming.

You could even do an alternative version of this and wrap up a box like a present and fill the container with baby gifts that match the designated...

It’s So Exciting!

Congratulations! You just found out that you’re pregnant and are bringing a new life into the world! What an extraordinary moment! This is wonderful news! Now thanks to modern HD ultrasound technology, you can watch your baby progress throughout your pregnancy with incredible accuracy. At Hey Baby Ultrasound, we offer the best HD ultrasound in Seattle.

Remember those old staticky-looking black-and-white ultrasound images that give some suggestions as to what’s happening in there — but not much more? It kind of looked like a baby, but it kind of looked like something else, too! Fortunately high definition technology has made it possible for us to see inside of the uterus with much greater clarity.

How To Prepare

It’s important to prepare properly, though, so that your HD ultrasound goes smoothly and so that you can see as much detail as possible. Here are some pro tips:

  • Wear clothing that is loose...
