    Don't think you can. You may want to speak to your doctor or consultant about the OPPTIMUM trial. They do the ffn tests if you qualify to be on the trial (I'm not sure of your history so I can't tell you offhand) I had a 27weeker so I could do it.

    Another thing is - a positive is not accurate. A negative is. I know-weird.:wacko:

    My consultant wouldn't do a fnf test for me either (I lost my second son at 27 weeks due to pprom at 20 weeks in 2009). I didn't even think to look privately.. wish I had thought of it may have saved me lots of worry... I think asking your gp would be a good starting point, they maybe able to tell you if its an option privately.

    On a positive note I am now 38 weeks 5 days pregnant and no signs of labour at all!

    Sandi I hope ur positive test turns out to be nothing. Stay calm. I just read previous posts and found out about ur recent post as iv been in hospital due to bleed. They just said pray I get to 24 weeks cuz they won't do anythin till then. Also I just wanted to pre notify u so u don't think I'm being rude and ignoring u- but the laptop isn't working and I'm currently using iPod and battery will be gone within the next half hour. So pls dnt think i havnt responded out of ignorance. I will get back to u as soon as xxx p.s u dnt undastand how much I appreciate u even taking ur time to even look for me - wether I qualify or not thnx hunni x
