FAQ ABOUT OUR ULTRASOUNDS
What type of ultrasound service is performed at Peekme?
We only do elective ultrasounds for entertainment purpose only. We can give you a estimated due date, confirm pregnancy, record heartbeats, take 3D & 4D ultrasounds.
What is the difference between 2d, 3d & 4d Ultrasounds?
2D Ultrasounds are the traditional black & white ultrasounds that shows silhouette of your baby. 3D Ultrasounds allows you to see the baby features and this can be printed in gray-scale or in color. 4D Ultrasounds allows you to see the baby in 3D with movement.
How far along do I have to be to get a 3D ultrasound?
We recommend 27 weeks to 37 weeks for 3D ultrasound. 3D Ultrasounds can be done as early as 20 weeks but most babies look the same at 20 to 25 weeks. Babies features are not as defined as 27 weeks and up. The far along you are the more fat the baby has to fill out.
Will my 3D pictures always be clear?
That depends on the mother’s body. Mother’s who are more hydrated tend to get very clear, precise pictures. Mother’s who have been dealing with a lot of morning sickness pictures will be affected as well. Some mothers do not have a lot of fluid and that can affect how pictures turn out as well. If we can’t get a good picture we will give you a week to hydrate and come back for a second session free of charge.
When can I get a gender ultrasound?
Our gender ultrasounds are from 14 weeks to 27 weeks. We no longer do gender ultrasound past 27 weeks due to fact your baby is getting much bigger and there is not a lot of space for baby to move around. The earlier the better when determining gender.
What if we are not able to tell the gender of my baby?
If we are not able to determine the gender we will reschedule free of charge for another day. Some babies need an extra week of growth and this will be determined at the time of visit. We also advise mothers to drink or eat something sweet before arriving to their appointment so that we can get their baby to move around.
What if I was told the wrong gender for my baby?
If this happens we will stand by our service. So if you go to your physician for your anatomy scan and they tell you a different gender contact us. We will have you come back in and verify the gender again and if the physician was right we will give you credit for what you spent for the gender towards a 3d ultrasound session or towards in store credit. We do not give refunds.
I’m not sure how far along I am can I get an ultrasound?
Yes we have mothers come in to confirm pregnancy as early as 5 weeks. Most early pregnancy ultrasounds are not able to be seen abdominal until about 6 weeks. If you come too early we will reschedule free of charge for a second visit two weeks later.
Do I need an appointment to come to this facility?
Yes, we work by appointments only but we do accept same day appointments as well. Appointments can be booked by calling 904.337.0118 or booking online.
How long does 3D ultrasound takes?
We allow at least one hour for a 3d ultrasound session due to lack of cooperation of baby. Our goal is not to keep mother under ultrasound probe for an hour. Most 3d sessions are from 30 minutes to 45 minutes. The condition of the mothers body at the time of session plays a big part in how long your session will be. We strive to get the best pictures possible. If we feel we can get better we may recommend mom to come back in a week after hydrating free of charge.
