    I had my downs test bloods taken at the midwifes last Tuesday, but with all the other stuff going on with my blood pressure, I completely forgot to ask her what happens next!!

    Will they let me know the results? Do I need to call for them? If I do, how long do they take?

    I'm not seeing her again until I'm 21 weeks and don't want to wait that long.

    Hi Tankett.. should take 1-2 weeks depending on how busy the hospital lab is etc.. mind you my m/w never called me about my spina bifida results and that was over 3 weeks ago now.. so be sure to call the GP or m/w surgery to chase up if you haven't heard after a week or so..

    Thanks girls, it does seem different wherever you live. I had the bloods drawn on the 21st, so I'll leave it until the 4th April which will give them 2 weeks to send me a letter if they want. If I haven't heard, I'll ring them.
