First Trim blood test and check up

I am currently 9 weeks, 2nd child. Previously took the Oscar test but this time round the gynaecologist suggested another option which is “NICE” (NIPT). Anyone did that and any suggestions? Oscar test is definitely cheaper option but lesser comprehensive results than this option which the doctor mention

NIPT price is 3X of Oscar but accuracy is much greater than Oscar. Oscar is known to have false positives. NIPT can also reveal gender. I didn’t take both as I will still give birth to baby regardless of its condition. Maybe you can ask her why she suggest you take NIPT over Oscar, and if you choose Oscar will she be ok with it. Is there anything specific she wants to find out from your NIPT results that Oscar can’t tell?
