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.

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!

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!

Posted 14 February 2013 - 05:07 PM

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?

Congrats on your results cyber sprite! My NT scan is on 11 March. I am also having my scan at Sydney Ultrasound for Women- they were fantastic with my first pregnancy and I have recommended them to everyone I know.

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.
