Cindy, Sonographer at BabyBound Ultrasound

Meet Your Sonographer

Hi, I’m Cindy. As a long-time healthcare provider and ultrasound professional with vast hospital experience, I understand that standard clinics can be a little intimidating.I would like to change that. My work is my passion, and nothing is more fulfilling than offering expecting parents a chance to witness the beauty and miracle of life that is within a mother’s womb privately and comfortably.

As a mother of 3 beautiful children, I understand that every moment is precious, including the moments when your baby is still in the womb. We all wonder what our babies are up to during this unique time of development. Thanks to today’s technology, I am able to give my clients insight into the world of their unborn baby. I am so happy to provide this service to all the parents who can’t wait to see their little one!

Planning Your Visit

General Information

You can book your 3D ultrasound as early as 8 weeks. Each trimester will allow for completely different 3D/4D views. Earlier in your pregnancy, you may be able to see the baby’s entire body and all the movements in one frame. However, before 20 weeks the facial features aren’t yet well developed.

To see the face better, it’s best to schedule your 4D ultrasound around 25-28 weeks. Keep in mind that waiting past 30 weeks might reduce the clarity of the pictures because babies tend to cover more as they grow bigger. We are an appointment-only facility so please call, text, or email us to book your elective ultrasound in Chicago.

Water, Water,
and More Water

Please remember to drink your water everyday. Staying hydrated throughout your pregnancy is key. 

Drink plenty of water 4-5 days leading up to your appointment date (as long as you are not on a fluid restriction). Drink about 64 ounces of water a day.

Doing so helps amniotic fluid levels be optimal for better
2D/3D and HD ultrasound pictures. Please drink your water everyday before your appointment, not just the day of.

Gender Reveal

The external genitalia of your baby starts at around 12 weeks but for an accurate gender determination it’s recommended to wait till after the 15th week of pregnancy. We strive for customer satisfaction, so to avoid erroneous gender determination, we advise waiting until you are at least 16 weeks pregnant to come in for the gender reveal. The bigger the baby, the more accurate the determination.

Please finish drinking at least 16 ounces of water 30 minutes prior to your appointment time so your bladder will be full. Please do not use the restroom until you have asked the sonographer.
