    hi im not sure hun i was told they need to do them between 15 and 17 weeks for it to be accurate best thing to do is check with your midwife
    i didnt have mine as didnt see it as important i would not have an abortion so no point in spending my pregnancy with extra worries xxxxx

    I would check with the midwife but surely they wouldnt let you have them if they werent then worth doing, also you are entitled to time off from work for antenatal appointments so you should be able to go when you are given an appointment,
    I found this which you might find useful

    Hi Dionne,

    I went to see my midwife at 17 + 3 and she still offered me the blood tests although we decided we would not have them it wasnt t late if I had wanted them.

    Regards

    Sarah

    Hello Ladies

    I have had my results back today, am classed as a low risk - 1 in 942 which I am relieved about.
    :D
