Learn more about each technique before you choose which one is right for you.
The traditional black and white sonogram. Although this is used by physicians throughout the pregnancy to check on the health and development of the baby, parents like to use it to catch a glimpse of their child. At Sneak a Peek Boutique, we offer parents two different packages that only feature the 2D ultrasound.
Sneak a Peek
This package is meant for mothers at the end of their first trimester, from eight to thirteen weeks. The baby’s gender cannot be determined yet, but parents will be able to begin to recognize their child’s features as well as see and hear his or her heartbeat.
This 2D ultrasound becomes available to mothers in their second trimester, fourteen weeks after conception. At this point, technicians can identify the baby's gender. This package gives you the same opportunities as the first, with the addition of gender determination.
2D ultrasounds are also part of our Premium Peek package, alongside the cutting-edge 3D and 4D ultrasounds.
A 3D ultrasound is captured by using the same technique that captures a 2D ultrasound, and the 2D scans are compiled to create an accurate 3D rendering of your unborn child. This gives you a chance to truly get an idea of what your child will look like, and even which features he or she shares with each parent.
The 4D ultrasound takes the 3D ultrasound to the next level by providing a live video component. Not only do you get to see a still 3D rendering of your child but you also get to see a livestream of your child moving. Many parents are delighted to see their children blink, yawn, and — best of all — smile.
Getting a look at your child will likely only make you all the more excited to prepare for his or her arrival. In addition to providing prenatal imaging, our boutique carries a number of items for the expecting mother and her baby. We even have the option of creating a gift registry, if you want to receive our products or our services as part of your baby shower.
