Getting a Sneek Peek at Baby #2 with UC Baby
Sometimes being pregnant feels like a foreign concept to me – yes I see my growing belly, I have heard the amazing sound of the baby’s heart beat and I feel all of the wiggling and kicking this little one is doing inside. But it can be hard to believe that there is actually a baby in there, growing more each day. The 2-D ultrasound pictures while neat, just don’t do the experience justice.
That is why we were so excited to be able to do a 3-D ultrasound with UC Baby. Everyone in my family is so excited about baby #2 we thought that this would be a great way to include them in the experience. Rather than only being able to being 1 person, and getting a 2 minute look at the baby with a regular 2-D ultrasound at UC Baby with the Complete 4D package you get a full 30 minute session of viewing, and can bring up to 5 guests.
I made up little invitations on the computer to invite my mom and my aunt to the ultrasound, they were so thrilled about being able to join us there were even tears. Here is everyone waiting to go in for the ultrasound, does it look like they are just a wee bit excited?
One of the most amazing parts of the ultrasound was being able to share it with family members who live far away. UC baby offers LIVE broadcastingof the ultrasound to up to 8 email addresses. So even though JAMs mom was traveling in the US at the time of the ultrasound, she was able to log on and be a part of the experience with us.
Baby was a little shy at first, but with some coaxing to wake up we were able to get some great pictures and video of our little one. And, no we did NOT find out the gender ) The Ahhhh moment for me was watching this baby who has made me sick, kept me up at night with insomnia and gives me heartburn, roll over and yawn. It was such a precious moment, I felt my heart melt a little.
UC Baby offers a clean and relaxed atmosphere, with comfortable seating for mom and her guests. And at the end of our session we left with over 75 pictures on CD and a DVD of our entire session as well. You can customize your session to fit your specific needs from a quick listen to baby’s heart beat to the Golden Package which includes 2 separate 3D ultrasound sessions. With 29 locations across Canada, check to see if there is one near you! You can also connect with UC Baby on facebook and twitter.
My experience at UC Baby is not one that I will soon forget, there is a little person in there growing more each and every day! It was amazing to be able to share it with family, I know that these are memories that they will treasure forever as well.
