A 22 week 3D ultrasound may be carried out to get an anatomy scan of your baby. During the procedure, the sonographer will be able to see the developing fetal organs, and as well as check the health of amniotic fluid levels.

Your doctor will generally advise you to get a 3D ultrasound exam between 18 and 22 weeks of pregnancy. However, you may also get an ultrasound scan as you approach 18 weeks of pregnancy if your physician requires the anatomy scan of the fetus.

When it’s not possible to get a clear image of the fetus, the sonographer may ask you for another scan closer to 22 weeks.

What Should I Expect At My 22 Week Ultrasound?

During the 22 weeks 3D or 4D ultrasound, you may see the following:

  • the fetus kicking, moving
  • the fetus’s current face
  • a clear view of the brain, heart, and as well as other organs
  • his fingers and his toes

Although 3D and 4D scans can be common practice, they are not frequently applied for diagnostic applications. The 22-week 3D ultrasound will reveal the gender of the baby, the growth of its organs, as well as the face of the unborn child at times.

It will also provide the woman with details on any health concerns and signal how the pregnancy is progressing. Depending on the outcomes of the ultrasound, a patient and her doctor can start getting ready for the delivery.

22 Week 3D Ultrasound Gender

Girl Ultrasound Signs

The sonographer will scan for distinctive characteristics referred to as indicators when deciding the gender of the baby on ultrasound. There are two signs for girls to look for:

  • Hamburger sign: This is the term assigned to the presentation on an ultrasound of the labia and clitoris. If you look at a picture carefully, you’ll see that the lips of the labia look similar to a hamburger bun, whereas the clitoris looks like a hamburger patty.

Boy Ultrasound Signs

Male fetuses will be easier to recognize than females, you can assume, but that’s not always the case. This is particularly valid prior to week 14. The confirmation for a baby boy will be characterized by the following indications in weeks 18 to 20:

  • Sagittal sign: If at more than a 30-degree angle, the caudal notch points upwards, then the baby is a child. It could be harder to make a definite decision if it is anywhere in between.


Can you get a 3D ultrasound at 22 weeks?

At any stage of pregnancy, pregnant women can go through 3D & 4D ultrasound scan. Nevertheless, for the finest face detail, we suggest a gestational age of 26-34 weeks. The baby has put on enough weight and rounded out at this point to make details more prominent, but still enough fluid in front of the face of the baby to get nice photos.

What week is best for a 3D ultrasound?

In a single appointment, we can recommend having the 3D/4D ultrasound scan done between the 26th and 34th week of the pregnancy. Nevertheless, after about 24 weeks of pregnancy, fantastic photographs of your baby can be captured at any time. Fully-figured pregnant mothers should start preparing their 3D/4D ultrasound between 28 and 32 weeks of pregnancy.
