As many of you know we played a fun little guessing game this week. I showed you my ultrasound pictures and had you guess if it was a boy or a girl. Well I believe all but one of you guessed a boy and yes, the indication is that I am having a little boy! Great guesswork everyone! If you guessed a boy then you got your 2 extra entries into the giveaway of your choice! Congrats!
Now we are all quite familiar with the typical 2D ultrasound as shown above but have you ever seen your baby in 3D or 4D?? I was lucky enough to get to experience that at Enlightened 4D Imaging in Bloomington, MN. They offer private 3D/4D ultrasound services and I have to tell you both my husband and I were blown away by their facility and their friendly but professional service.

Here is the awesome 3D image that we captured of our little guy! If you click on the image it will enlarge so you can see it better. I have to tell all of you pregnant mamas that this experience was amazing and I would recommend it to every pregnant mama. This is likely our last child and I’m so glad I got to experience this. It is so special and creates a great bond between you and your baby. Getting to see that this little baby actually looks like a baby at just 4 months blows my mind! What a cool peak into my belly.
Let me tell you this is nothing like your doctors visit either. They have a huge, comfy table to lay on that has a nice cushion and really is probably the size of a twin bed! It is very comfortable and you lay there staring at a screen with the ultrasound images that is the size of the entire wall! My husband and I couldn’t believe just how huge the screen was. Nothing like the tiny T.V. screen we try and squint to see at our doctor’s office. You won’t miss a thing with the huge screen displaying the images and you won’t have to crane your neck to see it either!
This photo is not my baby as I’m not far enough along yet for my little guy to have that much baby fat filling him out 🙂 This is the image you can see of your baby when you are further along in your pregnancy though! It really gives you a look at your baby’s facial features. It’s like getting to meet your baby before they come out!
Not only were the facilities and technology top rate but the staff were absolutely welcoming and so friendly. We were immediately put at ease and felt so comfortable there. Enlightened 4D Imaging and Photography is a family owned business. The husband end of the team, Jon is an ultrasound technician certified in obstetric ultrasound and has worked in a professional capacity for the last 10 years. His wife Sheri is an absolutely amazing photographer. We were able to check out her photos and I have to tell you I have never seen such adorable newborn photos in my life. They are unbelievable.
Enlightened 4D Imaging also offers pre and post pregnancy massage. We checked out the facility and first of all I’d love to have the couch in my living room as it is amazing. The massage table is out of this world. It has cutouts for everything so although you may be 9 mos pregnant you can actually lay on your belly! That in itself is amazing 🙂 This is a great gift idea for all those husbands out there 😉
I have to tell you that after researching and searching out the best facility in Minnesota to have a private ultrasound this is it. They have the most experienced staff, best technology available and the BEST PRICES around! I highly recommend them! This whole experience was so memorable!
