Hi All,

I am currently 14 weeks preggy now and just did down syndrome test last week.
They found that my baby have thick neck fluid 3mm and my bloodtest results is not that great either.

Im going for amnio test soon and feel very worried/depressed..

Anyone have similar experience before?

Dun be depressed yet. My LO also diagnosed with thick neck fluid. I went for harmony test and the result turned out to be ok. Oscars is only 95% accurate. Go ahead for another test. Good luck!

Hi nnama,

I am in week 14 too and collected Oscar results yesterday. My NT scan results were good but blood results were terrible. Hence I now have an increased risk. Please let me know how your amnio goes, I might need to do that if harmony results are not favorable in 2 weeks time!

Keeping you in my prayers for now!

I personally feel Oscar was created to suck money and tears from anxious parents. Had I known Oscar tests produced so many false results, I would have skipped and did Harmony straight. The risk for DS for mums under the age of 30 is actually 1 in 800.

I am 27 and 15 weeks now. The day i received my Oscar results was the day I realized how much being pregnant is real and how much i longed for a child. My T21 was 1:71. I cried myself to sleep for weeks. Doc at TMC suggested amnio, she was all "chop chop" talk, not putting my feelings into consideration. But mum took me to Dr Charles Tan at Mount E seeking for second opinion. Dr Charles mentioned to go for Harmony straight, do not put baby at risk with amnio. Might get quicker results with Amnio, but Harmony needs 2 weeks at least. I've read and heard of miscarriages due to amnio, was too afraid to take the risk. Dr Charles charged me 1k and also threw in some discount as he was also my mum's gynae. The wait was horrible esp during CNY when everyone was in festive mood. But I kept convincing myself not to make a wrong decision simply because I can't wait to know the results. Went to pray, and finally on day 7 received call from clinic that everything was well and I'm expecting a boy.

My advice is to have faith in your child. Trust your instincts! Be positive!

Great!! I hope we both get good news and all will be well!!

I am only 31 and am surprised to have a risk ratio of 1:50! And it's just weird that my NT scan came back normal but my blood test was all over the place. My gynae has no explanation at all. Our best bet is the lab made a mistake when doing our test. I am hoping Harmony test will give me some good news.

Before my gynae told me abt oscars & harmony test, i came across so many false negative results frlm oscar test.

So at my 12weeks, my gynae discussed wif me abt the various test to take, & without hesitation i told him i will go Ahead wif the harmony test.

It was in late jan then. I do not want to receive a unfavorable oscar results & then have to take the harmony test to confirm, & end up spoiling my cny mood.

Not to worry mummy!!
Oscar test is really to frighten 1st time mummy like us....
I miscarriage my 1st 2 pregnancy and when i found out i was pregnant again.. I was so damn scare and imagine my oscar result was 1:3... Doubt anyone as such a lousy result as me lo... My life literally collapse, i was like a zombie... my hubby encouraged me and we decided to take cvs instead of amino as he knows i cant wait for another 4 weeks to do the amino test.. He was so sure he saw the nose bridge of our baby.

On the day we are to go back to check on the cvs result, i told my hubby we have to abort if the baby really come back having ds... Imagine our happiness, when the cvs result return good and my baby has no ds and its normal and having a baby girl.

Therefore dont be down and sad till its confirmed.. Oscar test is really to frighten and suck some of our $$...

Can anyone share with me their Oscar report? In the combined screen did they key in the measurement of nasal bone? Mine was indicated as unknown. Not sure if that's why my risk is indicated as high.

I believe most hospitals provide such tests, even if they do not, tey will refer you to another doc / clinic.

I think currently no labs in sgp does the 'analysis', so tey hv to send the blood sample to usa lab, so roughly take at least 10days to 2 weeks.

Cost about $1k -$1.5k .

Some mtb do the test to hv a 'piece if mind', so tey will enjoy the rest of the pregnancy if test result is found to be good..

If there is anything negative / unfavourable abt the test result, it allow them to 'faster' decide on next course of action.

Hi m1s5y,

Hey Nmama, just wondering why didn't you opt for harmony instead? Issit because of the NT thickness thats why doctor didn't recommand? Mine also, nv talk abt harmony.. Was wondering why I wasn't offered.


Charmsss, congraz.... Glad to hear that from you...

I'm going to take OSCAR tmr ...wish me good luck.....hope BB all ok
I'm totally against Oscar now! Made me worried for close to 2 weeks... And finally I got my harmony results, and I'm sick!!!

If you don't mind paying more than will suggest you go for harmony straight. I paid $1284 including GST.

hi miloPeng85,

my Doc actually recommended me to take the harmony test but after much consideration i still opt for amnio as it is cheaper (harmony $1700).. and also it is very accurate and can detect more chromosome abnormality than the harmony test..

my Doc say if the harmony test results come back positive i still have to go for amnio.. so i tink just do amnio lah more accurate and cheaper.. i already waste $500 on that stupid Oscar test! Lol
