I just had first appointment with the midwife yesterday at 10/11 weeks. I am going on what CBD test has said as came off the mini pill and have not had a period since. I've been desperately waiting for my first scan appointment to confirm everything's ok, midwife made one but its not for another 3 1/2 weeks which would put me between 13w3d and 14w3d. Now I'm just a bit worried in case I miss out on the nuchal translucency test. Should I be concerned or just trust the professionals?

Hi Sessie, try not to worry. The dating scan can take place anytime between 10-14wks to include the nuchal test & if you are just over the 14wks then they will offer you an alternative form of test. It is highly common to have your initial date change with your dating scan also with some going earlier & others going later (e.g. my eldest was initially 8th Dec 09 but got moved forward to 4th Dec 09, my youngest was initially 7th Sept 11 but got moved back to 10th Sept 11). Of course baby will have their own schedule so will rarely arrive on the EDD (your better just sticking to 2wks either side of your EDD). Best wishes.

I am trying not to worry, and am aware you can have other tests, but think you have to wait for the results of the other test and its not as accurate. I know I'm doing a lot of possibly unneeded worrying here, but its something OH and I feel strongly about knowing, and would be a lot harder going several weeks more in to your pregnancy if you're going to get a high risk result. Just need to keep fingers crossed we'll have just made it.
