    My gynae said it is not necessary to test microdeletions because the chances of having it is extremely low. So I did some research and decided to take the basic one instead :D

    Same here, I didn't do the rest of the genetics testing coz chances of it were pretty low. Just did the basic ones.

    @SUEZY , @MistyCloud , thanks so much for both your feedback :)

    I think I will go for harmony as well. I will get tested in 2 weeks time. The 2 weeks waiting process is unnerving though!

    No worries :) yes, harmony test is good enough , jus go for it :) for me cos my Gyne only offers panorama test , so i jus go for it too:)
    Yes, exciting to know the gender of baby. The nurse who called me for the panorama test result is super cute, even gave me a drum roll sound effect when announcing the gender of baby :D

    hi all,
    newbie here, hope to hear some advice and getting some morale support.
    my wife is 38 coming 39 in Jul, currently 12weeks 6days into pregnancy. went for OSCAR at TMC yesterday and the result put us at high risk of 1:11, the measurement is 3.2mm
    now feeling super down and worried. trying to console the wife and making sure she stays positive, cos 1:11 doesn't mean the baby has DS.
    however, I read that many of the expecting mothers here went to see a Dr Ananda, may I know where is his clinic or how I can seek his 2nd opinion?
    our baby scan can see the nose bone etc, it pains me to see the wife in sad mood now, thus seeking out advices and hope to have a better result be it Harmony or other tests.
    thanks,
    Allen

    Hi, I think for Oscar test , the ratio takes into account the maternal age too. What did the gyne say about your wife's NT scan? If NT scan is Okie , then at least one load off. What did the gyne suggest? Do harmony test or panorama test? Alternatively, like what some mothers-to-be did, they make appointment to see Dr Ananda to get second opinion. Jia you! :)

    NT scan at 3.2mm, I don't even know what is the normal range. I have made an appt with Dr. Ananda in early Jul, hopefully by then the baby grow abit more and can get a better/detailed scan. fingers crossed, its making me not able to concentrate at work...especially over a quarter-end closing....sigh

    Will hang in there till the next appt next Thursday and will definitely update the outcome. Just realised that I might be in the wrong thread. My wife's edd is 30dec15 - 01jan16. Kind of confused and not sure which thread I should be in. :) cheers.

    Kowa's clinic(level 16) at Mount E Orchard. He charges $1000 for Harmony test. Very reasonable.
