I don't have a date and I'm further on than you!

I phoned yesterday and they told me that I'm in the system and that I will hear in the next 3 weeks.

I'm freaking out about it! Now you're saying they don't do NT? Crazy!

you're going to the princess royal though, right? I heard that the NT thing can vary from hospital to hospital, so you may get it there. I'm not sure what to think about that tbh, I need to find out of the blood test is as good.

I think it's pretty cheeky the way they give out appointments. I mean, mine's fine and I have plenty of time getting time off and all that, but they seem to be cutting it really close with you. They should just phone and give you a couple of options rather than sending out a set appointment...

Hey guys, hows it going? I'm not gettin NT earlier which is worrying but I may pay private. 45 is a bargain for peace of mind. It's a joke how they allocate scans here total lottery.

as far as I know the NT has to be done right around the 12 week mark...my 8 week scan is really just for peace of mind and we decided if we see a heartbeat we'll tell parents and that...which should make it easier explaining why I'm always tired/sick/crying

I think a private NT test would be well over 45... I think I may call my German doctor and find out about that blood test...not that I don't trust doctors here, but she's been my doctor for ages and also I know that she won't have to tell me what NHS policy dictates...

Thanks guys!

It seems like a total lottery. Especially if all the hospitals do things their own way.

Horrid that this is such a worry. I've said it before but it seems like unnecessary faffing around, upsetting pregnant women who are already freaking themselves out on their own!

How is everyone doing?

After some really superficial googling i'm not sure i want the blood test for downs, i've read in a couple of places that it has a high rate of false positives.. So there's either leaving it altogether or somehow coming up with the money for a private nt/blood combi. ~200 i don't have.

I'm also still thinking about going home for just a few days and getting it done there, but that's only an option if i've got time to go between 11-13 weeks, which i haven't looked into yet.

I've been a complete mess for the last week or so. Nauseous all day, can't eat anything much, and i've been crying for no good reason at all! Reassuring in a way, but really annoying at the same time...can't wait for 2nd tri and i hope things will be better then.

Has anyone else had problems sleeping at all? I just can't seem to fall asleep at night, up until 2-3 most nights...i'm not tossing and turning, but i'm just not falling asleep properly. I also wake up what feels like 500 times a night. :/

I hope everyone else is alright and enjoying their pregnancies!!

How is everyone?

Had my private scan today, it was amazing! Bang on 8 weeks, so we didn't see much, but heard a really strong heartbeat of 158bpm. I called my parents and told them, they are really happy for us and it was so reassuring to hear they don't mind us not getting married and the pregnancy being unplanned.

Great day all in all, i'm so happy!

Telling the boyfriends parents tomorrow, i'm a bit nervous...

Xx

Aw that's great news!

The wait is sooo hard for me another 2 weeks before scan but hopefully at 14 weeks it'll be a great pic! X

It should be!! Yeah, can't wait to get a proper look at 12 weeks, but it was so good to hear the little heart beat so fast!

Good luck for your scan!
