It is much easier to determine D/S at the 12 week scan. There have been women on EB that have had a high risk at 12 weeks, not done further testing, all indicators gone at the morph scan and then gone on to deliver a baby with D/S.
Which is why the testing is done between 11 & 13w6d.

Hey everyone! I haven't been on these forums in ages!! How's everyone doing?! I could go back and read, but eh... LOL.

Anyway, I'm doing OK. 12 weeks today! We had our scan and down syndrome test earlier this week, and all's really good! Was so exciting seeing bub for the first time!

How's everyone feeling? Anyone showing just yet? I'm not! Still feeling sick, though. :-( Hoping it passes... any day now!

We also announced the other day. People are excited, which is lovely.

Anywho, hope you're all doing well! Hopefully I can keep up!

Hi ladies,
I have a question about the NT scan. I'm 11 weeks today and have the NT scan booked for Wednesday.
My GP gave me a referral to the hospital but they were booked out so I booked into the private imaging place she sent me to for the dating scan. Its just occurred to me though that being an imaging place they might not do they blood test, have any of you been to a private imaging place and did they do the bloods and everything?

Also, I'm going to a wedding on Saturday and we're trying not to tell to many people until after we find out everything is ok at the 12 week scan. I used Feb fast as my excuse for not drinking at the hens party but obv I can't use that now. Does anyone have any good excuse suggestions? I love my wine so its going to be so obvious!

Thanks guys!

Scaredbutexcited -

No private radiology places do not have the facilities to draw blood so you will need to go to a pathology place for that. You need a blood test form for that too. Plus my GP told me to have the blood test done 3 days before the ultrasound so you'll be needing to have the bloods done today for a Wednesday appt if you were in formed the same thing.

In regards to the wedding, a urinary tract infection being treated with antibiotics?

I went through a private imaging place. They handled it all - I had a quick dating scan and then they gave me a referral to the pathology place across the road. I paid at the imaging place and they were the ones that rang me with the results. There are doctors at the imaging place, so they can write you any referrals you need. They are usually located next to or very near pathology places. There was no need for me to get the blood test 3 days beforehand.

AFM, we had our 13 wk scan yesterday and all looks good. We're going to start telling everyone now, yay! And we found out from the NIPT/harmony, that we're having a boy. So excited to have found out. Now we just have to find the name - it's proving a bit difficult so far. DH and I have different tastes for boy names, so it might take us a little while.

Ps. Welcome to all the newbies.

Congrats NJ! How exciting a little boy!

Where did you get the nipt/harmony test done to find out the sex?

Is it in Australia?

The bloods were taken here (just through a normal pathology place, but organised via the private imaging clinic) then sent to the US, so it took about 10 days before I got the results.

How exciting nj to  find out you're having a boy! Are you going to tell anyone that you're having a boy or keep it a surprise?

We will be finding out this time hopefully, but I don't know whether to tell people or not.  We didn't find out last time (hubby's preference and while I wanted to know I wasn't  as passionate about it as he was). This time I want to know! He's ok with that. I know I will tell my Mum because she will be helping out with washing all the appropriately coloured clothes lol but also she's already going on about DS's little sister which is starting to get on my nerves a little. But I kind of feel like if I tell mum then we have to tell all the other grandparents and if we tell all the important people we may as well tell everyone! Argh! It's doing my head in.

Yeah. It costs around $600 or so.

We're telling everyone about it being a boy. We had a few pregnant friends/family that knew the sex of their baby and kept it a secret from everyone, but I never really understood the point. We kind of felt it was odd that they were openly keeping it a secret from us. Whilst we were thrilled they were expecting, the sex of the baby wasn't that exciting to us. Sorry if that sounds harsh!

But definitely keeping baby names a secret is different kettle of fish. Won't be telling others unless I can cope with negative feedback.
