Want to know the secret to a great scan if you're coming to see your baby's facial features? HYDRATION! Water, water, water is the key to a beautiful 3D ultrasound! Why? Because water (water only) builds up the amniotic fluid around your baby's face and the more fluid, the clearer the images will be! Here's an example of a hydrated mama and a mama who isn't hydrated...the top images she wasn't hydrated in 2D and 3D. In the underneath images she was hydrated...WOW!
The difference is crystal clear! Drink lots of water at least 3 days before your ultrasound to build up the fluid, Mama's! You'll be so glad you did! :)
