Hey ladies,

Just thought I would start a separate topic for our 12 week test results so we don't fill the regular chat with pics and what not.  So if you want to share results here is a place original.gif  lol.

My scan is on Friday this week - can't wait!

Great idea!!

Are you all having both bloods and scan, or some just scan??

Great idea  original.gif . I'm finding it hard to keep up with the chat thread  blush.gif

I had my 12 week scan yesterday, and the baby is healthy. She changed my due date to 29th April though! I was always a bit unsure of dates etc. so it's good to have a better idea.

I'm not going to worry about getting another blood test done.

I don't have a scanner, so can't show off the pictures, but will look forward to seeing everyone else's!

Both - doing the normal Nuchal Transluceny screening.  Had my bloods done last Friday.

LookMumNoHands - congrats on your good results original.gif  I had 2 dates last time - one was the 4th and one was the 9th.  Hospital went with the 9th while everyone else went with the 4th (the first calculated date).  That was fine with me... meant I had 5 more days before they would talk about me being too overdue.... not that it mattered... Zach arrived on the 5th, lol

Woohoo our first pic.  Lovely original.gif

Oh and a note to others - take a CD or USB stick with you and when you go in ask if you can get a copy of the images so they know you want it from the get go.  Not sure if all places do it but it's worth asking original.gif  So you have digital copies straight away.

Hi All

Had our 12 week scan today and all is going well.. dates are within 1 or 2 days of what we thought.  Due date is staying as 5 May!

We are now very excited.  I would love to post a pic but I just can't work out how.  Anyone have any tips!

Sarkazm76 - how did you go today?

Congrats ladies, can't wait to be sharing my good news next week!

To add a piccie, click full reply, then there is a little logo, the second green one under "fonts" which is "insert image".  I think you need to have uploaded the pic to an online photo sharing tool, then link it over.

Hope that helps!!

Results 1: 604 for Down Syndrome, background risk was 1:225 so it actualy is 3 times better than that biggrin.gif  Stoked!  Also about 30 times better than with my 1st when I had 1:24!!!

Very relieved.

I will work out over the weekend how to post photo's so you can see our image too!

It does feel good for it all to be settling, now just to wait for the M/S and exhaustion to go...

#14 sarkazm76

Posted 26 October 2012 - 09:34 PM

Thanks biggrin.gif

Actually bubs would not sit still, lol.  1/2 way through I had to empty my bladder to see if it would make a difference, bubs was a little calmer after that, lol.

Lovely scans MZER and sarkazm  biggrin.gif

sarkazm - it's such a relief to be told the risk for DS is low.

I had my scan nearly a week ago and here he/she is...

Everything was measuring as it should, though I must admit I got a lump in my throat when I saw his/her little hand waving at me wub.gif
Being 37, my main worry was the DS risk.  Going by age alone, my risk is 1:127, however, with my bloods the risk reduced to 1:1050 which I was MEGA relieved to hear.
