3D Ultrasound Complications

Heather - October 11

I have heard the 3d ultrasound is not good for the baby and can cause problems. I dont have details but about a year ago Discovery magazine cam out with an article about a study they did on the 3d ultrasound and its saftey for the baby. Overall they concluded its very very loud for the baby making it uncomforatable which raises their heart rate and also that it is very bright for the baby as it has to be to get the picture since the picture is created with a reflcetion of light. I was all for taking the pictures but now I am worried it won't be a pleasent experience for my baby, anyone else know anything about this?

I had one and it did not last all that long and the baby did not seemed to bothered by it as far as the heart rate going up when they checked his heart rate it was in the normal range I don't think it would be something you should get done on a daily basis or anything but one time I really doubt could do any harm and the pictures are wonderful just so you know I had to have this done due to my age I am 35 yrs old and am considered high risk due to this fact so I just did not go out and have it done just for myself or anything so if you don't have to have it done then if your worried don't do it...good luck

Hi Rhonda, The doppler used to listen to the babies heartbeat has the same amount of noise as a helicopter flying right above your head. Not too sure about the 3D ultrasound. Hope this helps!
