    I only got mine on saturday (10:6) for a scan next monday (12:1) so that's only a little over a weeks notice. I would worry when you hit 11 weeks.

    It is annoying as not everyone has a job that they can just drop at a weeks notice.

    Does your hospital offer the nuchal scan (for downs syndrome)? Because if you have a scan later then around 14 weeks-it's too late to do the scan. I had a scan at 10 weeks-which was slightly too early for the nuchal test-so am going back next week. The lady said you have to come back before 14 weeks.

    It seems strange being made to wait so long. I'm glad i didn't have to wait, i'd have been ringing up every day to complain!

    work have to give you the time legally so try not to worry too much.

    With your scan, its very frustrating, what is your MW saying? some places dont scan until your 14 weeks so it could be down to that.

    Your other option is to change hospitals, but that will affect where you give birth. but just because that might be your cloest hospital does not mean you have to give birth there or have your care there, you have the choice and if your not happy with your care at that hospital then change.

    Im in half minds about changing myself. but ill wiat until i see my consultant and if he doesnt give me the care other trusts would ill swap.

    I appreciate by law they have to give you time off but cover still needs to be arranged plus most of us want a mum/partner to take time off as well.

    I'm sure you're letter will get there soon.

    I got mine the week before it happened so if by 11+4 you haven't got it I would ring antenatal clinic and check they have your referral/request form. Good luck x

    i realise that too, i too have an OH that needs time off and a child to find someone to look after, but she was talking about having time off work. I was just saying that she shouldnt worry, yes its incovinant for management, i have been management, but she shouldnt worry about that.
