I'm a first timer (i'm 30, hubby 34) at my week 7 today. I went to see gynae today, and she asked me to do research and decide if I'll want to do OSCAR or NIPT next time. Is OSCAR sufficient? My gf personally went OSCAR, but was told that theres some borderline issue, and it might be caused by OSCAR not super super accurate. Ended up she go for NIPT, but 2 weeks of miserable worry. Eventually results were ok, and her son is turning 1 years old in a few days. I'm not sure is her case a one-off kinda case or what. I have yet to pass 12 weeks, hence I did not share my unstable pregnancy (am bleeding, on hormones jabs & daily pills) to others. So i have no avenue to ask for help. #pleasehelp #1stimemom #OSCAR #nipt

I'm 33 yo.. I would suggest to go Oscar. NIPT if it's high risk they will suggest you to do amniocentesis to confirm the test results. for mine I did Oscar, and results came out to be high risk 1:2 chance of down syndrome. so I was recommended to do amnio straight rather than NIPT & baby turn out to be fine. there are false positive for NIPT as well which in the end they will recommend you to do amnio. just do Oscar & if it's low risk, its really very low risk as the false positive for Oscar is really high.
