Wondering if any of you have brought/thinking of bringing your older children to your "big" anatomical ultrasound (20 weeks-ish). We've got one booked for Monday and I've been toying around with the idea of bringing my three year old. She is SUPER excited about this baby and talks about it all the time so she definitely gets this whole baby thing. When we were at the midwife last she helped squeeze out the ultrasound gel and "helped" find the heartbeat, and otherwise sat quietly and observed. She's fairly quiet with new people and likes to observe more than participate.
I asked when I booked the appointment if they had policies about other children and the receptionist said as long as they are quiet and not touching things then one child is fine.
But would she get it at all? Have any of you had kids in the same age range - she JUST turned three- come to ultrasounds? Did they get it? Could they understand that the grainy black and white image was a baby? Would you do it this time?
I can't decide, and my husband is his usual helpful stuff ("whatever you want to do is fine with me").
