    Booking in notes done and she's booked me in for bloods. She also said she's sent off for my scan appointment which should come through by the end of the month.

    I explained my Mum's history - she had a baby with Edwards Syndrome; an unplanned pregnancy at 45 and sadly the baby only survived a few hours. She's offered me an Amnio if I want it, but to be honest, I've never had any inclination to have it with the others, and unless there is something that comes back as high risk as part of the Nuchal then I don't think I'll be rushing to have it.

    She's put me at about 5 weeks too so we'll see what the scan says in the next few weeks.

    Wow that was quick. I've not done anything about seeing a mw and I have no idea how the system works here.

    Hey Hun,

    Hope you're good?

    Have you heard of the harmony blood test?

    It screens for everything just from a sample of your blood and is the earliest way to know gender too!

    Hey Maybe,

    No I haven't - is it something I'd have to have done privately?

    I'm good love, the normal skittish worries of Tri1! How are you feeling? Xx

    I'm alright you know.

    I'm always positive and expect all to be well but be prepared for the worst.

    Good mindset to have. I don't know why I feel so antsy this time. I need to chill the fuck out.

    The blood test is a private thing about £100.

    The cheapest I could see online was £399.

    I think I'll see what risk I am after the Nuchal and if it's high I'll 100% find the cash for it.
