    I had mine done about 3 weeks ago and I didn't even think about it until I saw another post.

    Any ideas when I should get it?

    I think it's called the triple test.

    I think if you haven't heard anything by now then all is ok (i think). I had quad test on tuesday and they said if there way anything to report then i'd hear within 5 working days. If you want to be certain for peace of mind just give your midwife a call x

    I think my letter took about 2-3 weeks to come back with the combined test results, but they said they would phone me within a week of taking the bloods, if anything was looking unusual.
    (I had a previous triploidy/molar pregnancy in 2009)

    I had my bloods done the same day I had the NT scan though, so it might be different for you. Maybe you will get the results at your next MW appt? xx

    If there was any cause for concern you would have heard by now. Doesnt hurt to call and ask though. Mine came back in 2 weeks.

    I had mine done last Friday. The midwife said it takes 2 - 3 weeks to get a letter, but if there is a problem you get a call within about a week. I'm wondering if my week is up tomorrow or Monday?

    My Health Authority won't do it until your 16 weeks because it gives a more accurate result then
