34 weeks is the final scan. Growth scan to make sure everything is ok and no extra plans need to be put in place for the big day I suppose.

The usual scans here are 12 weeks NT scan, 19 week morphology scan, and 34 week growth scan.

Although i had a 4 weeks scan (this one was booked before I was pregnant and was just to have a looky around at my inside girly bits, make sure ovaries, uterus shape, etc was all ok), also had a 6 week scan due to bleeding, then an 8 week 'reassurance scan', a 12 week NT scan, 13 week reassurance scan, 16 week reassurance scan, and a 19 week morphology scan. This 15 weeks between scans has been a LONG time, but it was a bit easier because I could feel movement. Now I feel LOTS of movement! Big kicks into my ribs that are enough to make my boobs bounce . Love it

I have a full day tomorrow..

20 week U/S at 8am then off to the lab for my glucose test ( never had one before but midwife suggested on this time because of my age and the fact my last baby was 10 lbs) after that is all said and done I have to head over to the midwives for my monthly check up

In between I am hoping to get a few last min. stuff bought so I don't have to go out again till after Christmas.

That is a busy day! Good luck with all the testing, I hope everything goes smoothly. I have heard that the glucose test is not too much fun.

Glucose tolerance testing is standard over here at 28 weeks. Sometimes they;ll request the test earlier if youre measuring a little bit bigger. They take blood, then give you the yukky glucose drink, then wait an hour, take more blood, then wait an hour and take more blood! By the time it was finished I was STARVING!

Good luck with your day tomorrow Future.

LOL Melly! Here is how I did my glucose test:

Eat breakfast (you can only have certain foods), one hour later, drink your drink (the orange tastes like almost flat orange soda), an hour later, have blood drawn. But we only have our blood drawn once.

As far as I know the glucose test here is blood drawn ( after fasting since 12am) drink gross drink, wait hour bloods drawn again..

Game plan is after drinking the drink I am going to run to store to pick up a few things only to rush back for second bloods

I had to fast before mine too. Nothing for 8 hours which isnt too bad, but I do enjoy my breakfast. They dont let you go anywhere once there either. You have to wait around. I had mine done at the hospital and the only waiting area is the emergency room waiting area. Usually never a dull moment in ED, except for the morning I was there. Lucky I took a book.
