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

Hello! I did NICE when I was 12w! I think it's very new so you can't find info on it. I did 5 weeks ago. NIPT tests are much more accurate with 99% accuracy. I know some mummies who took OSCAR (95% approx accuracy) but had some anomaly from the tests and ended up having to do NIPT later on with lots of worries 😅 so you might want to just go for NIPT straight if your gynae suggests that :) take care! ❤
