Charmss, I am with the same gynea as you... =) Was your oscar intro by dr chew too?
Yah! Dr chew. He booked everything for me, including harmony.

Actually I m switching Gynae next week I think, Cuz I think dr chew rates are quite ex. He charged me $3k+ for amnio initially...

Duh! I think you re-check again on his price cause I don't think thats the price he gave me. Also, you know he is very experience right? Since now you are all alright, maybe you should check with him on his package? I am also not sure whether he do has package like normal Gynae.

Since I'm not doing amnio anymore I won't be checking on his price :p

He does has package that starts from week 13, it's $1600 including normal delivery. But every time u go U still need to pay for scan which is $40. Vitamins also not included.

Hey girl, did your doctor explain to you about CVS?
Me and Nmama didn't opt for CVS maybe for that same reason. You might want to talk to your doctor again on this. Also, I think CVS is more expensive than Anmio. I didn't compare on price la, but fyi, CVS is drawing the fluid from baby percentile where this are all the nutrients we supply to baby.

So happy to see some expecting mothers with good results here.

I just got a call frm my gynae that my blood test result for ds is high at 1:27 ratio. Neck fluid during NT screening is about 2.1 and 2.4mm.. now doctor is suggesting me to take CVS for confirmation.

Please pray for me too mommies..

Both CVS and amiotic fluid have minimal risk of miscarriage, am so worrying now.
I just did my amnio last week.. very little pain and i tink its safer than CVS.. discuss with ur doc and hubby 1st..

But if u still worry go for Harmony test, no risk of miscarriage.. ur bloodtest will be sent to US..

Hi everyone, glad that I found this forum re CVS/Amnio experience in Singapore

I am 29 this year and 9 weeks into my first pregnancy. Before marriage, my husband and I both knew we are carriers of Thalassemia A and with each pregnancy there is a 1/4 chance that the baby will have the full blown disease (Thalassemia A major - often will self-abort during pregnancy or be still-born), 2/4 chance a carrier like us (healthy), 1/4 -normal. We knew our options beforehand - either a CVS or amniocentesis. There is a non-invasive way but it will mean to do bi-weekly scan from 16th week till 30th week to monitor the blood flow in the baby's brain. But often when the scan detects any abnormality it may be too late into the pregnancy and invasive test still has to be done to confirm.

Having to make the decision now to do a CVS at 13 weeks is heart-wrenching, especially after seeing the baby's shadow and hearing its heartbeat on the scan. What if the CVS procedure hurts a perfectly healthy baby (as there is a 1/300 chance of miscarriage)?

But a 1/4 risk is too high to take and not do any testing about it.

I am glad to see some positive experience with the CVS and Amniocentesis in this forum and hopefully this gives me strength to know that the procedure is mostly safe. I am scheduled for CVS in mid April. Of cos I have to deal with the aftermath of the results too, 1/4 is a big percentage but I suppose I should look forward to the 3/4 chance where the baby can be perfectly healthy.

Hey don't worry, though there's a small risk in CVS but the risk is still rather low. As long as Gynae is skillful and you have faith in baby, most importantly, rest up after the procedure, all will be fine.

Hugggs rcving the news n knowing u need to go for cvs/amnio is omggg.

Waiting for the results is another. Try not to think and stay positive. I try but I will still break down when I think of it.

Jus have bed rest aft procedure. Doc gave me 1 day mc but I needed too as the following day work for me is intense. Rest is impt.

I just did my CVS (trans-abdominal) today, and seriously it hurt.

First, the doctor will clean the skin with some antiseptic and then a local anaesthetic is given through the skin of abdomen using a fine and thin needle to numb. A needle is then inserted through the skin into the placenta in the womb, under ultrasound guidance. You will feel some pain momentarily as the needle enters the uterus (very uncomfortable and slight sharp pain). A smaller second needle is then inserted through the first needle. With a forward and backward movement, a small amount of placental tissue is then drawn up into a syringe. disconfort when pulling out (thank goodness). After the tissue is obtained, both needles are then withdrawn and a little plaster is applied to it.

Doctor said that sometimes some mother have to go through 2 times if the collected tissues is failed.. such as.. blood is too sticky and thick, that will cause difficulty in separating blood and the tissues.

I hope this information is helpful to some mothers that are going through the same procedure but not knowing how it is done. By good mean, not trying to scare you. Anyway, it toOk abt 15mins.. though I feel like it's more than that.

So, now I get 3 days off in total.. and some break as my husband will be taking care of my daughter.

Pray hard to hear good news on Thursday and hope that baby is safe and healthy.

Thanks Vivileow & Nmama for the kind words, I have got my preliminary result on the second day after I took the CVS test, it's a good result which my baby BOY is not suffering from any chromosome abnormalities, and yes, I'm expecting a BOY! Perfect "combo" as I have a 20 mths daughter and soon a son. I am a happy mom :)

Good luck to all mothers.

My Doc was the one who inform me abt my ratio.. 1:98
for example.. if 98 people eat nasi lemak, 1 may get food poisoning.. something like that lah..
oic. my doc didnt tell me anything about it. only said very common, schedule me for heart test for bb
 
Hey ladies, my quick results came back last week and baby's T13,18,21 is ruled out. Thank God.

Detailed results pending as nurses mention my cvs growth is slow. But doc said so far it's okay.

And we're expecting a girl for our first child.

Praying for you ladies, strength and positive thoughts to be with you. Baby's gna be fine.

(my lil one was scanned of 3.6mm NT during week 12, at week 14 scan it was significantly lowered to 1.5/1.7mm)
