The ultrasound that almost didn't happen...

Ok...the Dr. told me at my first appointment that he wanted to check things out at 16 weeks rather than waiting for 20 weeks so I made an appointment for this morning.  I got there at 8:00 and went back to have my bloodwork done, then saw Lauren (who informed me that she just found out that she is pregnant...YAY) for my nurse interview, then went back to the lobby to await my ultrasound.  About five minutes later the receptionist calls me to the window and asks me why I am waiting.  I told her that the doctor wanted to do an ultrasound due to previous pregnancy related issues.  Five minutes later the Ultrasound Tech comes and gets me and informs me that she can find no reason to do the ultrasound today because the last one looked normal.   I told her what the doctor explained to me at my last visit and she informed me that the doctor was not in but if I wanted to then I could wait on him to get there.  So of course I planted my little butt in a chair in the lobby and waited on the doctor to come in.  I had already decided that if the doctor wasn't in by 10:00 then I was just going to have to leave and go to work, but at 9:55 the tech came out and got me to come back and do the ultrasound.  
Baby Webb is VERY active!!  He/she has a good heart rate and everything else looks normal so far.  We did not find out the sex today....BOOOO!!!!! I think that there is a possibility that the tech could have figured it out, but she was angry because I was right and she was wrong so she did not really try BOOOOO again!!! Anyway, here are the pictures of little Baby Webb at 16wks1d.

Ultrasound Facts and Information

3D ultrasounds

Ultrasound is a device that allows you to see your baby during pregnancy. During the sonogram is a picture taken of your baby during the ultrasound. During the sonogram is a "still shot" of your child. 4d Ultrasounds take 3d Ultrasounds images, or Sonograms 3D, and adds the element of time to this process. The result: Live ultrasound images of work your child. Some people refer to the procedure and prenatal imaging, imaging 3D, 3D scanning, scan or 4D.

3d Ultrasounds is a medical ultrasound technique is often used in the ultrasound department of ultrasonography (during pregnancy) and provides three dimensional images of the fetus.

There are several ways to scan in medicine and obstetrics and ultrasounds. Standard common obstetric diagnostic mode is 2D scanning. 3D scanning of the fetus, but instead of sound waves are sent down and reflected is sent from different angles. Back to the deal echoes a sophisticated computer program is the result of the number of reconstructing three-dimensional images of the inner or fetal ultrasound organs. 3d Ultrasounds allow you to see the width and height and depth of the images in much the same way as in film 3D, but no movement is shown.

4D Ultrasound

A 4d Ultrasounds uses the same technology as a 3d Ultrasounds but adds a video element to see the baby moving inside a mother's womb. You might have heard about a 4d Ultrasounds? What exactly is the difference? Instead of looking at single still images of your baby, like snapshots, 4d Ultrasoundsassembles them into a time series—in other words, a video of your baby inside the womb.

4d Ultrasounds a fully digital system is set to provide a 'next generation' integrated solution for medical imaging applications, allowing practitioners to provide faster treatment and improve therapeutic success rates.

The portability and low cost of 4d Ultrasounds systems allow physicians and family physicians have access to imaging systems on a daily basis and make a valuable contribution in the field of preventive medicine.
Three-dimensional (3D Scan) and four-dimensional (4D Scan) ultrasounds can be a bit more complicated to perform, so it’s important to choose an ultrasound center with a strong track record of 3D and 4D ultrasounds examinations.

4d Ultrasounds is similar to 3D scans, with the difference associated with time: 4D allows a 3-dimensional picture in real time, rather than delayed, due to the lag associated with the computer constructed image, as in classic 3-dimensional ultrasound.
