Assuming all goes well I should be having a baby at flinders hospital at the end of October.
I've been to a gp who took bloods etc, then said the next step was to phone a number and be allocated a hospital and then I would have a scan at 10-13 weeks to check for Down's syndrome.
I phoned today and got as far as being allocated to flinders but ended up being told to phone back tomorrow.
I've been looking at the flinders website and it says they only do one scan at 19 weeks. They say the tests for downs are only done if you are refered by your gp. Does this mean I'm going to have to traipse back to my gp to get a referral?
Has anyone given birth there? I'm already worried enough incase it isn't all going well (I'm nearly 35) and waiting until 19 weeks would be torture. I was worrying enough about the waiting that long for the downs scan.
This is my first by the way, incase you couldn't tell lol.
