    Scan place didn't say anything.

    Doc said a few days before.... Just was curious what people normally do, wasn't sure if they want blood results at scan etc... So scan is a Monday so just not sure if fri is enough time with a weekend.

    Will call scan place if necessary, just figure there are so many women who have been there

    Default 12 week scan and blood test timing

    With DS I was told to go when I was 10 weeks for BT then scan at 12 weeks.

    ETA: I got my results on the day of my scan as they already had my BT results.

    I had it a few days before my scan which is what the Dr said. The scan place said they didn't give out results so I had to wait for my next drs appointment.

    I went to a place that took the bloods, tested them while the scan was done, then gave all the results to you in a scary little room about an hour later. Done and dusted in one go!
