Ultrasounds have many uses but so many moms find comfort in the sessions we provide. There is nothing like watching your baby wiggle and kick on the screen before you can feel it, or seeing the flicker of that tiny heartbeat. These moments are monumental to many expectant moms.

Although you can always schedule an ultrasound session with us for a little peace of mind,the first few weeks is the most common times we notice moms need that extra comfort. There are two reasons for this usually; they want to see that first heartbeat and visualize the baby in the proper spot, the uterus. Another common time is that transition between the first and second trimester. Often our moms tell us pregnancy symptoms resolve, they may not be able to feel movement regularly or if at all and they may not look pregnant yet. These factors may make mom a little anxious. Seeing thier babies on the screen provide an instant relief of comfort.

Many moms we see have also underwent fertility treatments and were use to getting weekly ultrasounds from thier fertility doctor. Once released from their fertility doctors and to thier OBs they aren't getting ultrasounds regularly anymore. During this transition we are so happy to provide peace and reassurance to our expectant families.

Whatever your reason is for just wanting to see your baby, we get it! We are here for you, mama!

Interested in booking a 3D/4D scan but worried your baby might not be the most cooperative? Don’t worry you are in good hands. For one, Miracle In Progress has top notch equipment and a team of the most sweetest, skilled, trained and registered sonographers you’ll ever meet. So now that thats covered you maybe wondering when the best time to book your ultrasound might be? You are welcomed to come in any time during your pregnancy however our favorite time is weeks 26-32. At this stage baby is nice and filled out but not too squished in there. Offen moms even get great images all the way to full term but a good time for all mamas is 26-32 weeks.

Another common question we get is “which package do you recommend?” We have a variety of packages to choose from. Our 2 higher tier packages come with free rescans if your baby doesn’t cooperate the first time around. It is our goal to make sure you are 100% satisfied with your ultrasound within parameters that we have control over of course.

Final Tips To Prepare For Your Ultrasound Remember to stay nice and hydrated a few days prior to your ultrasound appointment. The better hydrated you are the clearer the images. Hydration isnt an instant process so remember to start chugging the extra water a few days in advance. We can not stress the importance of hydration enough for clear images and most importantly optimum health purposes. Be sure to come in after a snack or a meal. A fasting state may cause baby to be sleepy and a sleepy baby may be difficult to move into a good position if he or she is hiding. Finally, choose the best time that suits your little one. Is your baby more active in the morning or evening? Baby’s are most easiest to image if they are in a more awake state. Be sure to schedule accordingly. So now that we covered all the bases to prepare for a successful 3D/4D ultrasound you can schedule your session in confidence knowing that you and our team will be best prepared to capture your sweet little one during this special time. We can’t wait to meet you and show you, your baby!
