It’s real

On our arrival back from the wedding I have two letters labelled NHS on the envelopes. The first one confirms I have a 12 week scan on Tuesday 1st September, the second confirms I have a midwife appointment on Monday 10th August. I’m so excited, it’s all starting to feel real. Both letters come with a number of leaflets. It’s quite scary to read about some of the tests, it’s one thing to deal with what happens if the Down’s syndrome test comes back as high risk, but if it does i’ll be offered an amniocentesis test, which has a 1 in 100 risk of miscarriage. I’m not much of a gambler but I don’t like those odds. I try to put it to the back of my mind as I continue my progress of getting through The Goodwife on Netflix, there are so many box sets I plan to make my way through when I’m on maternity leave. All suggestions welcome!
