    The measurements can be seen right away in the scan right?
    but blood results must wait?

    Any age also can take. But above 35 they would recommend due to higher risk age grp. Still voluntary though. Only know result after they consolidate the data from both your you/s & blood work.

    ebichan - ya, any age can take oscar test, actually is to play safe, as its not just our age that causes down-syndrome

    initially, i also thought of not taking, but after the doctor's advice - there is no cure for down-syndrome for now, and if dont detect early, then will only realize after birth, which i think its a suffering for both parents and baby

    Let me know the process and how it goes.
    Unfortunately my doctor is very conservative and likes to give me very statistic info. But it is his style of professionalism.

    Ebichan - can take Oscar anytime regardless of age. But the older you are, the odds are higher.
    It is a statistic game ie results is known in 1:xxxxx. For me - mine was 1:2005 so there is 1 in 2005 chances baby will have dear son. If you ask me, I would go for the maternit 21 test

    Ebichan, Oscar is a computation of 2 things. Your blood test near or on week 12 & the measurement of fluid behind baby's neck.. from there system will come out with a ratio e.g 1 in 2200 chance (my baby's result) of getting trisomy21 - down syndrome. The system computes for trisomy 13 & 18 too but it's less common to strike..

    I wasn't that relaxed with my results cuz it was based on 30 yrs of age and also worried due to twin b... So I went for additional detailed scan (on my bill it was called fetal anormally scan) with a doc at Camden.. maybe he uses a differential system (I'm not sure) but at 21++ weeks, he chop n stamp all organs are growing well and on track and my trisomy21 ratio was reduced to 1:9964.

    those are amazing numbers.
    I was googling and based on age, it says something like 1:128 but is it because it needs to combine the blood work too to correctly assess?
    I see. so many things to study
