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

for me, doctor advised that since I am below 35 yo, can just do oscar first and I followed his advice. if oscar results came out to be mid to high risk range then I can consider taking the nipt. mine came back low risk so I did not proceed to do nipt. that said, since Oscar is not a diagnostic test, it can have false positives.. two of my friends has results ranging in the low hundreds ratio and proceeded to do nipt and everything came back normal.
