Prenatal Universe in Tacoma, WA -Shelly's Review

Being pregnant with my third and possibly last child, I wanted to make sure that this pregnancy was everything I always wanted it to be. I had minor morning sickness, found out we were having a baby girl (so excited!) and since we are a Navy Family, we get the joy of seeing Military Clinics/Hospitals. Not saying anything bad about them, but we get one ultrasound and that is to make sure our baby is a "He" or a "She" and to make sure it is a healthy pregnancy. Since my pregnancy was healthy and right on key with what Doctors thought I should be, we got to see our baby girl in the wonderful 2D (Jack Skeleton image) as I like to call it. 

I know a lot of people who have gone out and had 3D/4D ultrasounds done but I never knew if it was worth it being pregnant. I mean, what are you going to see that you didn't see on the 2D version? 
Lucky enough, Gennadiy from Prenatal Universe in Tacoma, WA (our new nesting place) offered me a 3D/4D Ultrasound package to review on Three Wise Mommies!
We first arrived (Ryan -My Husband- and I) and were very pleased with the location. It was clean, neat and super comfortable. It did not feel like you were waiting inside a sterile clinic, instead it was friendly and inviting. Gennadiy was SO kind and very wise at his profession. He knew what he was doing and explained everything to us each moment. You can tell he genuinely cares about his clients and is just as excited as the expecting parents!
Our Baby Girl!

Baby C ended up getting some great shots throughout the session (we even got a DVD of her moving all around!)
look at her little feet!
Sleepy Girl!
 Overall the experience is something I can not believe I waited until my third child for! I wish I would have done it with my other two kids. It was something I will remember and cherish forever and I can not wait to show her the images and DVD when she is older, so she can see what she looked like in Mommy's tummy!
