NIPT you can also find out the gender, which really appeals to me
I've been recommended to get the nipt because of my daughter. Am very excited that they can check gender too.
We found out at 12 weeks with our daughter- I'm so impatient!
@Lilsmurfy oh that's good about scans! I've just swapped to a new OB because the one who delivered our daughter in December is now turned into a prick and I'm not happy with how he's treating me. So not sure about new OB and scanning but I will be alternating between the women's hospital and OB fortnightly.
You guys have so many appointments!
My understanding is I can have a dating scan proving my gp thinks I need one, then the nipt at 10 weeks, nt scan at 12 weeks, and then I get referred to the birth centre. Then after that I basically only have the 20 weeks scan and the gd testing then I wait to give birth lol
I have first one at 8+4, then 12 weeks, then 4 weekly until 28 weeks at which time it drops to fortnightly until 36 weeks, then weekly. Apart from 12 and 20 week appointments, I'll have a scan at each appointment
I'm so jealous. But I really want to go into the birth centre and have a water birth. It's the only place you can do it in Brisbane.
There are probably more appointments at the birth centre but I don't know because I haven't made it far enough haha.
We are going to get progressional 4d scans done at an imaging place too so will see bubs a few more times in there!
In NZ, you only get 2 scans if your pregnancy is low risk!!
@Thescientist ms is horrible and destroying my happiness atm. Dh is taking tomorrow off so I can rest more, but it's debilitating tbh. Sorry to be a downer, I'm normally a very positive person but this is killing me!!!!! Nothing is working to relieve it either.
Pregnant for the first-time?
Not sure where to start? We can help!
