Sounds a bit late for the anomaly scan. Can you rearrange it?

I don't know about the scan, but the blood test should be fine. I had an appointment with my midwife today at 15w2d. I asked her if she could do my blood test today to save me coming back next week (its quite a way to my doctors) she said it was too early, so I'm booked in next week when i'll be 16w2d. She said the blood test is done between 16 and 18 weeks and that they'll do it no earlier or later, hope that helps a little.

everything with third pregnancy seems to have run late.

12 wk scan at 14wks.

20wk scan at 22wks +3...

get your midwife on the phone if you want the scan to be changed to earlier, and she can lay it on about your concerns...of course they may be full booked up but it is rather late, and she is the health professional hopefully talking to another

ok guys thanks for advice, to update midwife called this morning appears to have been a "clerical error" it should have stated 02/01/09 not 20/01/09 although the times are completely different hmm but anyway all sorted now. With regaards to blood tests, fine aslong as before 18 weeks, the prefer 16 weeks incase results get lost to allow "time" to get blood again! Anyway feel a lot happier today.
