Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
I had my a/s at 18 wks, and everything was done in 2D because everything is clearer. The tech offered 3D at the end, and it was just a blurry blob.

We went in for an elective us at 16 weeks. They let us have a sneak peak of the us in 3d, but unfortunately LO was hiding behind my placenta and we couldn't see anything.
I had a 3d with both my boys. With my first I had it done at 30wks(first picture). It was super cool because when he was born I could actually compare the u/s pic with a newb pic and it actually looked just like him. I did the 3d with my 2nd for sex determination at 18wks (2nd picture) because my DF works OOT and was going to miss my scheduled appt. I definitely saw more than a blob and thought it was super cool to see him in 3d but it definitely didn't show the features as well as the 30wk u/s. All in all I think it was worth it though.
I had a 3d at 17 weeks 1 day. I didn't ask for it, but my doctor does everything (he is the one that does the ultrasound, so he switched from the 2d to the 3d). It was AMAZING! I could see little one's face, and at first he had his hand over his eye. Then he put his hand down and opened his mouth several times... It was the first time I relaxed a little bit (I'm a little too worried about things... Guess that's normal). I knew baby was a boy beause my doctor told me at 13 weeks and said he was 100% sure. Anyway, if you can pay for it, I'd recommend it. :)
