    a 3d/4d scan can really be done at anytime but the best is really between 26-32 weeks or so. The baby isn’t big enough really before 22 weeks and after 35 or so the baby gets too big. Each stage has its pros and cons for example when the baby is smaller you can see a bit more of what is going on in there where at a later stage if the baby is bigger you’ll get to see a more developed and life like baby to be!
