    An OSCAR is a Down's Syndrome test which is done during the first trimester. It is usually done around yr 13th wk of pregnancy and it's optional. At POW hospital (in collaboration with the Chinese U), it costs $900.-
    So, don't panic, you still have time :treadmill

    oh, the down's test... i had one with my first, it was free back then.

    this time round i decided against it. i figured that even if it came back with a chance of down's i wouldn't be aborting anyway, so what did it matter? as it turned out, i have a beautiful baby girl.

    Ladypilot,

    I've posted a longer response to your other post.
    If you are considering doing private antenatal, don't register at Tsan Yuk until you are ready do antenatal visits there.
    It saves confusion with their records (just hand them copies of everything from Dawkins) at your first visit.
    Otherwise, they will be phoning you wondering why you aren't having checkups.

    You can have your first visit as early as you like with a private OB. 9/10 weeks is good, as there will be a heartbeat.
