Post subject: Anyone had a private Amnio?
Only recently found out I was pregnant. Had a private dating scan because the NHS date was ages away. Turns out I am 19 weeks pregnant. At 39 years old I feel I should have the amnio but am concerned how long the NHS will take, given they haven't done my official dating scan yet. Wondering about getting it done privately instead to speed things up. Has anyone else done this? If so can they recommend a clinic? I'm seeing the NHS midwife next Tuesday (first date I could get), if I tell her then I want the amnio does anyone know how quickly they get around to testing you? Any advice/info welcome as the tightness of the timescales here is all quite traumatic!
