Ohhhhhh...Look at my baby

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I had my first scan yesterday, just look at my baby, i can't believe what it's like to really see it all perfectly formed and wriggling around. Only 6.2 cms from head to bum. It's so incredible, i wished i could take home the machine and look at my baby all day

    You pay lots of money for 4d scans & get your own home video.

    you can actually get a dvd of your baby? I did not know that.

    And lots of congratulations for you, :)

    If people ask, ask them to buy the next sizes up. Also i personally never bothered to buy newborn clothes except a few sleepsuits as they don't last long at all.

    If you can afford it yeah it probably is, at the time i would have loved one but now i don't think its worth it. You get to get loads of pics when they are here. lol

    good point, i suppose they grow at such a rate that it's not worth going over the top so early on.

    To answer your earlier question, (i didn't see it til now) no they don't tell the baby's sex at our hospital, but with the DVD you can find out, but i haven't decided if i want to know yet :chin:

    That sounds like a rip-off. They're already displaying to a screen, how much more could recording it cost??

    it's because it's private i quess, yeah it probably is a bit of a rip, but it is 4d and you can see it so clearly it's incredible. i think it will be lovely to show to the baby when he/she grows up, how they wriggled about in my womb.

    i want me dvd! :hyper:
