    Here is my experience with Tsan Yuk: I went for the 12 week checkup and scan, and had blood taken for unspecified test and weighed and measured. They told me I had to come back 4 days later for the scan (I think they were too busy). I returned for the scan, and that midwife was very friendly and patient, spent a long time on getting baby to turn so we could have a proper look at him/her. I had another blood sample taken, and they told me that it was not NIPT but a more standard screening test which can tell you about Down's syndrome with about 80% accuracy as opposed to almost 100% with NIPT. They told me they don't offer NIPT but I had the option to pay myself (8k or so) to have it done upstairs in the HKU clinic.

    I am going back to see the doctor for a 16 week checkup next week. Does anyone know if they will do a scan then too?

    My 12 week appointment went well. Although at scan only one baby was playing nice. The other was hiding so I had to go back a few days later and got a more thorough scan of them
    both, both looking good at this stage.

    They didn't offer me a 16 week appointment which I was surprised about as I am over 40 and expecting twins.
    Although due to this my next appointments will be at queen Mary. But my 19/20 weeks an is at TSAN yuk.
    Just starting getting a mini bump!!
