Arrrghh. This week is finally here. My 12 week scan is in Thursday. I feel like I've known forever.
I've known I was pregnant for 9 weeks already, which is crazy because we wouldn't have even been 2 weeks post conception. We thought we were much futher along but we had an early scan about 6 weeks ago that pushed us back nearly 3 weeks! So this scan has felt like such a long time coming. Especially as in the beginning, my GP was adamant I wasn't pregnant!
I can't wait to see how much baby has grown since the little flicking heartbeat we saw a few weeks ago!
Anyone else hitting the 12 week Mark this week?Grin

Me! I was 12 weeks on Saturday and have my scan tomorrow. Very excited, it does seem to have taken forever to get here!

Hannano1990 · 26/06/2017 12:26

Ahh fantastic! Is it an early or a late one? Mine's at 9.30 thank God! I remember with it being really late in the afternoon with DS. I hated waiting all day.

Hey my 12 week scan next Tuesday ๐Ÿ˜Š I've also known about the pregnancy a long time, I tested positivite before my period was due

Kitcaty · 26/06/2017 18:40

Does anyone know how long it takes to get the anomaly test results back?

Hannano1990 · 26/06/2017 19:22

How lovely Kitcaty - Your anomaly scan isn't until 20 weeks. Are you talking about the downs screening?
HaylJay same boat as me! Finally! Grin

Yes I meant the nutchal scan and blood tests. I really need to go through all the paperwork so I can remember the names of all the tests!

Hannano1990 · 26/06/2017 20:02

I think it really depends. When I was pregnant with my son, they told us there and the that the fluid measurements looks perfect. I received our letter around a week later confirming our results.
A friend of mine was pregnant and they told her at the scan the the measurements didn't look great. As far as I can remember, I don't think they hung about letting her know the what the chances were. Once they found out the chances were quite high, they got them in quite quickly for more tests.

My apologies! That post didn't make much sense.
I need my bed.

It depends what the results are kitcaty. In our area, women with high risk results are telephoned with the result within 2-3 days whereas those with low risk results are informed by post within 1-2 weeks

Hannano1990 · 26/06/2017 20:23

Yes! That ^
You explained much better than me MadameJosephine

My husband has been dragging me around car shops all day. My brain is frazzled.

Me! I was 12 weeks on Saturday and my scan is on Wednesday morning. I had one last Thursday as well but having the nuchal testing done and they couldn't do it last week.

Kitcaty · 26/06/2017 20:46

My 12 week scan was yesterday. Baby was moving a lot and was difficult to see!

EdgeOfGlory266 · 01/07/2017 08:01

I had mine too! Again baby was really difficult to see because he/she was so active. Oooh and this is Hannano1990. I've changed my name.
Congrats guys. I'm rubbish with nub theory
Don't get it. ๐Ÿ™ˆ
