Beyonce's sonogram of baby Blue Ivy has surfaced. The 3-second video footage of Blue Ivy in her mother's womb is among the intimate periods of Beyonce's life that have been filmed for her upcoming HBO documentary, "Life is But a Dream."

The preview of the HBO documentary shows the 3 second sonogram of her daughter, who turned 1-year-old last week. The footage shows the singer talking about the struggles of hiding her pregnancy to the media. "They keep putting me in these tight clothes and trying to hide it," Beyonce says. "It's very difficult. I don't know how I'm going to get through this."

The documentary, directed and produced by Beyonce, is scheduled to air February 16 on HBO. It will feature exclusive behind-the-scenes footage shot by Beyonce herself, including material shot with her laptop, home videos, and concert footage. It also delves into Beyonce's childhood in Houston and gives an insight into the challenges she felt when she took on the decision to manage her own career and build her own company, Parkwood Entertainment.

"It also captures the intense physical and emotional demands she goes through in the studio, preparing for live performances, running a business and her family life, including her return to the spotlight after the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, in January 2012," HBO said in a statement.

Beyonce also stated on Monday: "HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity. Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming. This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home."

Beyonce is scheduled to perform at the Super Bowl 2013 in February. She has also announced this week that she will be releasing music with her former girl-group Destiny's Child this year. The group will also perform with Beyonce at the Super Bowl Half Time performance next month.
