a special place in a special time

It may seem a bit strange, but the first week of your pregnancy is actually the beginning of your last menstrual period before you become pregnant. Why is that? Doctors and other health care professionals calculate your due date by counting 40 weeks from the start of your last cycle. That means they count your period as part of your pregnancy even though your baby hasn't been conceived yet. Conception typically occurs about two weeks after the start of your last menstrual period.

The BBC is making a documentary about Down’s syndrome with Sally Phillips to be broadcast on BBC1 in 2016. The documentary will explore the debate around the proposed NIPTs and their possible availability on the NHS. The programme will discuss the implications for screening for genetic conditions, both today and in the future, exploring the support and education available to, and difficult choices faced by, parents-to-be. It will also discuss the progress in support for children and adults with Down’s syndrome and the advancements in any medical interventions that may be necessary At the moment we are researching the programme and are keen to speak with: • Women who are in their 1st trimester of pregnancy with their first baby • Women who have not yet had screening but are considering and would like to discuss the screening process and their experiences of it at various stages • Women who have not yet had screening but are not considering and would like to discuss the screening process and their experiences of going through their pregnancy without it We realise this is a sensitive area and that parents-to-be will involve a difficult and emotional decision making process during their screening and testing experience. Dragonfly are the makers of One Born Every Minute, and have a reputation for dealing with important sensitive subject matters and treating our contributors with warmth and integrity. At this stage we would welcome an initial off-the-record research chat. There would be no obligation to participate in the programme. If you are interested, please feel free to contact us Carl and Clare, if you would like any more information, or to talk things through. downsdocumentary@dragonfly.tv

I experienced 5 days of dark browish/nearly black spotting, which led up a large gush of red blood. Enough for me to think that I had begun my period, which starts heavy. I had a sharp, brief pain in my side before this gush of blood, I don't know if they are related. Figuring I had begun my period I through a pad on and went to bed. Upon waking, I found more brownish/blackish spotting. In the afternoon, I found more fresh blood, along with during the evening. However, again this morning, I am back to brownish/blackish. My periods generally are not regular, I fluctuate between 26 and 32 days normally.
