When you are pregnant, sometimes it can be hard to feel like there is really a person living and growing on the inside of you. Many times you are focused on how uncomfortable you are or how sick you feel instead of the beautiful life that is blossoming on the inside of you. If only you could catch a glimpse of what is taking place in your womb!
In the old days, mothers did not know the gender of their baby until the day it was born. Things have changed! Now you can get a pregnancy ultrasound picture that will show you what your baby looks like while it is still inside of you! Usually a doctor will order one at 6 weeks and at 5 months. At 5 months, the sex of your baby can usually be determined. A pregnancy ultrasound picture is a great thing to post on your refrigerator to get you through those last couple months of pregnancy.
There is nothing more exciting than catching a glimpse at your baby while it is still in the womb. Nothing is more special than the moment you and the father of your baby get to see your child for the first time. Many times, the person doing the sonogram will point out different things on the baby. Most places offer still images of your sonogram and some places even offer videos! Getting a video is a great idea because then all of your friends and family can see the baby in action too! Sometimes you will be able to see the baby flipping, sucking on its thumb, and doing all sorts of cute things.
You are only pregnant once and your baby is only that tiny once. Kids grow up so fast! You do not want to forget what your baby looked like when it was that small. Your pregnancy ultrasound picture will be something that you will cherish for the rest of your life. If you are pregnant you should definitely get a sonogram that will capture your little one. I do not think anyone will ever regret keeping a sonogram picture.
