I never realized how many ultrasound pics we would end up with during the pregnancy! I've had 3 ultrasounds and the pictures are starting to pile up. I am going to use one in the actual baby album, but does anyone have a creative way to use all the other pictures? Seems like a mini album may be a bit boring to most people if it's filled with just u/s pics, but there's got to be a cute way to scrap most of them...any ideas???
I'm pregnant with twins this time around so I've had an ultrasound every single time. I haven't scrapped them so no ideas on that, but my biggest suggestion is to get another copy of all of them. The ones from my last pregnancy 4 years ago have already faded and my friend's from 10 years ago are severely damaged from fingerprints and aging. I've taken photos of each of them and the photos come out surprisingly well compared to scanning them. Just my two cents!
My layout isn't that clever but I liked the title. The ultrasound photos are so much more sophisticated now....when I had it done 24 years ago you couldn't always tell where the baby was. My dd looked like a peanut..but it was exciting to see anyway. The photo is old but still looks fresh. It should be ok in an album.
I forget the company who does this but I saw at a Scrapbooking Expo a large silhouette of a pg woman and there was a hole in the belly behind which you placed the ultrasound photo.
I did this layout a couple years ago...nowadays it would have flowers or bling all over it. Love at First Sight By Dollscrap
My ultrasound pictures from 24 (twins) and 26 years ago have not faded yet. I have noticed that the newer ultrasound pictures are just on a thin paper. My U/S pic from 17 years ago was like a negative. There are 6 different pictures on one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet. Have no idea how to scrap that one.

I had lots of complications with DS and had ultrasounds done weekly, so I did a two page layout showing the growth, one picture from each ultrasound (these were the smaller ones on thin paper) and then did a layout with my favorite larger (on photo paper, thicker paper) ultrasound pic. I also did a pocket page and slipped all the ultrasound pics I hadn't used on a layout in that pocket.
My neice just had her second child several months ago. When she would get her ultrasound, she'd send me copies via email. I printed them off and when the baby was born, I made a LO, sort of a before and after!
