I am 39 and 6 weeks pregnant with dc3. Without wanting to count my chickens (I had an early loss in the Summer so know things don't always go smoothly), I have started to research NIPT which I definitely want given my age. My head is completely spangled so wondered if anyone could shed any light?
Is any one test (Harmony, Panorama, Iona) better than the other or is that they each have slightly better/worse results for varying factors?
If there is no definitive 'best' test' which would you go for? The Harmony and Iona are done locally to me so would prefer not to have the Panorama unless compelling reasons to do so? I am aware the Iona results are obtained in the UK so quicker turnaround but guess the others results are worth waiting for if they are much better..?
When is the best time to have the test done? I believe they can be done from around 10 weeks but is there any advantage/disadvantage to this ie better to wait until 12 weeks for any reason?
Many thanks for your thoughts
