    Yeah I've kind of known this and I'm dreading it.
    I've had GD twice, both diet controlled easily except for the last 8 weeks on DS2 where I needed a minuscule amount if insulin at night to steady my waking numbers.
    I know I'm not as high risk as some and these appointments are just to make the hospital happy, but they're going to cause me a lot of stress.
    My DS2 is a handful at the best of times.
    It's just too long a morning for him to deal with.
    My only other option is to get him into a daycare but when they insist you take a minumum of two days a week that's an outgoing of $150 on us just to keep the hospital happy.
    We don't get any rebates.
    If this is the case again, I'm wondering if I would be better off going private but
    I'll need to look in to that more because I'm not so sure even going private will help me avoid clinic 9?
    I've lots of questions

    I wish they'd sort this out.
    If there's reasons behind there being different ways to do it, why the hell can't they just outline those reasons and stop women second guessing everything.

    I'll stick to ringing the scan centre first thing in the morning and go on what they say.

    Yeah I just got told it's more accurate on the same day. And recommend over 35's to do it that way

    11+3 for my blood test , 12+3 for my scan. (I'm only 20+2 weeks now, so this was only a couple of months ago)

    i was away and had to have my blood test taken at a tiny outback hospital lol, the ultrasound place said they needed the blood test results to correlate the results with the scan results. I was told they needed to be a week before and the scan had to be done 11-13 weeks.

    I' m only 32 so your age might be the reason they need it the same day as it might need to be spot on. I would go with what the ultrasound place suggests.

    OK so I rang up this morning.
    I told the receptionist the conflicting advice and asked her is age the reason why some are told to get it done on the same day and others to get it done a week apart.
    She said no, that the reason they do it that way (a week apart) is to ensure the results are there with them and ready to be read with the scan.
    I then asked if I got a blood test today, how quickly could they have the results.
    She said by tomorrow or Wednesday???
    Why wait a whole week then?
    I'm booked in for next Wednesday (23rd) but I'm not going to go for the blood test until next Monday morning then.
    Would this be cutting it fine?
    If the blood tests aren't in by the time I get my scan, surely they can just look at them and work it out after I've gone?
    I don't mind waiting for the results for a day or two if it's going to be a much more accurate result.

    My GP is pretty up to date w things & she said to get the blood tests done a few days before hand to ensure they have the results on the day for an accurate reading. My scan is the Friday when I will be 12+1 (going by dates...I've not had a dating scan) & I'm getting my blood work done the Tues before.

    Aww thank you Chippa
    I'm starting to get a little excited, now that I've passed the dates I made it to last time
    Time has whizzed by though, you'll be due very soon. I can't believe that

    Hi Legeyt
    I've been reading along in the Feb 2015 thread thinking I'd join when I felt more confident in this pregnancy.
    I thought I'd be due Feb 3rd, then 1st and then at the last scan I got an EDD of Jan 31st hehe.
    Ah well.
    I wonder if I told them at the blood collection office that is as having the scan on Wednesday ,would they push it through. It should get there on time anyway but just in case?
    It's either that or change the appointment date to Thursday if I can.
    I really don't want to go for bloods on Friday and wait til Wednesday afternoon for the scan, I just think that's a bit too long going on some advice give to others.
