Do-It-Yourself Sonograms

There’s the big urge to see and hear your unborn baby anytime you want to, like turning on the TV. This new gadget claims you can capture your own sonograms with the included digital ultrasound camera and watch strange abstract baby images on the LCD screen. Like nearly all-new gadgets these days, it comes with a USB output for your computer to share it with the world. I'm really apprehensive about these things with new parents falling victim to marketing. When we were pregnant my wife and I bought something similar called 'BebeSounds' Prenatal Heart Listener monitor and that thing didn't work at all. I should have known when the packaging said "non-returnable" and the sales girl told us that they didn’t take any returns/exchanges on this particular product. Obviously they knew it was modern day snake oil!
