Sharing Ultrasound Pictures

Babysugar Diaries: Sharing Ultrasound Pictures

Witnessing the four chambers of a heart fiercely pounding, examining brain and spine development, and watching the tiny feet and hands move about with ease in utero is breathtaking. For lucky parents–to–be, an ultrasound technician will gather a slew of the baby's first photos for the new family to take home.

As technology now allows, many expecting parents choose to share their news by emailing the black-and-white snapshots of their newest addition. As a way to keep family up–to–date, I like to send the pictures along as the pregnancy progresses. Did you also share your ultrasound pictures?

Yes we email pictures to family and friends. I also try to send a good description of what they are looking at, since it can be hard to see them sometimes.

My brother share with us the VIDEO of his wife ultrasound and it was so magical, I could see my future nice or nephew’s legs, arm and his or hers little head, I could see how he or she moved, it was just beautiful, I can wait to meet my nice or nephew I’m so excited, it’s just magical

I posted my 3D one in my Geek Baby Group and I have a video of an earlier one on my iPhone ;-)

Yeah I showed the family and sent a copy to my grandmother who lives in Reno. She still has it on the wall and my daughters 9 months old.

Nothing compared to the 4D ultrasound dvd we got. It was so fun watch that with family.

Yes, absolutely. I'd had it a few days before I visited my parents and extended family, so I brought the pictures with me to share.

yes, I sent out an annoucement with the ultrasound pictures from the first trimester. It was a big hit.
