Well I had my booking in appointment yesterday with the midwife - they have dated me as 8 + 3, although I actually think it will be a week less than than that given that my periods are so irregular. It all went well until they had to try and take my blood for the routine testing - they had a lot of trouble finding a vein and after two of them trying in four different areas (with me looking like a pin cushion ) they eventually gave up and phoned the hospital. I then had to go to the hospital today for them to take the blood. Anyway I have just received the date of my first scan - it is on the 14th December, so I will be 12 + 2 then (by their calculations). I'm really not sure I can wait that long and am sorely tempted to pay to have a private scan before then. Has anyone got any experience with BabyBond? BabyBond Given that I have mc'd in the past - I am just very nervous about this pregnancy and at the back of my mind I have concerns about a mmc.
