Get first trimester screening bloods taken in week 10 and a scan at week 12. The results of both are combined to check for the likelihood of Down Syndrome and a few other abnormalities.

Has your carer given you a referral for these tests?

I've seen this mentioned a few times on EB and its got me wondering about my blood test - I've been told to have it done 2 - 5 days before my scan (where I'll be 12w5), I wonder if I should check with the hospital?

ETA:

Waterdragon - congrats on your scan yesterday! It must have been so exciting.

Bitingmynails - hope everything went well today!!

Happy valentines day everyone!
I just had the best present ever!

12 weeks scan today. Background risk was 1:704 before testing.
Doctors gave me an adjusted risk of 1:4999 for DS.
Trisomy 18 = 1:5068
Trisomy 13 = 1:7299

Heartbeat 163bpm

Baby is measuring correct for dates and kept wriggling around.

Here is our little nugget which now measures 4.7cm long:



For those interested in timing of blood tests, I had my bloods last Tuesday (10w 3d) and my scan today at 11w 5d.

I was really worried as my only symptoms now are tiredness and sore bbs.

Thats excellent news bitingmynails, so happy for you!!

In regard to the bloods, I was told to get them about 5days - 1wk before the scan...

I had my 10wk scan yesterday with my doctor, and I finally got to see the heartbeat!! AgainAgain it was such a relief to see it this time, he actually stopped and let me check it out - and it was nice and strong!  So now I feel much more relieved!! Cant wait for another 2wks for my 12wk scan and finally be able to tell people!

Just a tad excited!!!!!!!!!!! biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif

Aww so exciting about seeing your baby! It feels like forever since I saw my little peanut at 7wk5days! I went and picked up my report for that ultrasound, and I got a load of pictures which is pretty cool. I keep looking at them when I don't believe i'm preggers! It just looks like a peanut mind you, but I still find it amazing! One week till my NT scan, can't wait. Thanks for the info on the bloods, I checked with my hospital and she confirmed 2 - 5 days before so I can relax!

Thanks for the congratulations ladies. It feels so surreal.

I actually had a huge freak out whilst laying on the table because the US lady kept "tut tutting" and making really concerned faces but it all turned out for nothing - maybe she had gas?

Congrats on seeing a heartbeat lianth! Such a relief.

Good luck for your scan tomorrow cybersprite.
Since they are doing your bloods and scan at the same time does that mean you will have to wait a few days for your blood results to come in to get your risk ratios?

Hi Ladies,
New to this DIG. This is a very unexpected pregnancy, although I've had a month now to get used to it and am excitedish about it.
EDD is 14/09. I had a dating scan a week or so ago and showed I was at 8w6d and everything is looking ok.
I am not having a NT scan.
This will be #2 and a sibling for DD who turned 1 on the 10/02.
I live in the middle of no where, the closest hospital is Mount Isa, but I am trying to get reccommendations on an OB in Townsville and give birth there. So if anyone knows anyone... original.gif
I look forward to chatting more
Kel

Fantastic news on the ultrasounds everyone!

Ness don't worry too much. Get the gp to give you a referral for your 12 week scan if you like. The public hospitals will take you, only private ones you need to hurry to book.

I had my bloods done yesterday and couldn't pee LOL I didn't realise there was a urine test on there so I had been to the loo before hand. I gave a few drops but she sent me home with a jar and said they would call me if I needed to repeat. How embarrassing!

Booked my scan for 4th of March although I will be almost 13 weeks then. The GP said 11-12 weeks and the ultrasound place said they prefer a few days after the 12 week mark.

#25 Water Dragon

Posted 16 February 2013 - 01:26 PM

Congrats all on the scan results, how exciting! I'm starting to look pregnant now, but I hate this awkward "Is she pregnant or just bloated?" stage, LMAO.
