I've heard about 3d ultrasounds. I'd really like to get one, but is it safe for an unborn baby?

In brief: Yes, it's safe

3d ultrasound has been proven to be a safe procedure.
Theoretically, the ultrasound beam could cause fetal thermal injury (sound waves are a form of energy), but the ultrasound beam would have to be focused in one place for a very long time. Enjoy the beautiful 3d pictures of your new baby!
