Am booked in for the Percept test.
Are there any other optional tests i should look into?
Meant to ask the GP, but got distracted during the appointment and only walked out with the Percept referral.

You should consider doing the 'standard' NT 12 week blood test and scan too. Last pregnancy I was 42, the NIPT failed twice, and because I missed tHe quite narrow window for doing an NT scan I had no way to gauge the chances of chromosome abnormalities other than the eyeballs of the very experienced man who did my 20 week scan. If I had my time again I would do both tests.

Thanks for that. Duly noted. NT scan will be booked for a couple of days after the Percept. Thanks

Renovators Delight can I ask how the NIPT failed? I am wondering if it is worth the money on top of the nt scan and bloods. I am unsure of my dates as dating scan kept measuring different each time she measured and my dates have me possibly another 2+ weeks along.

I am too fat, the fetal fraction in my blood was not high enough. The fraction required for Harmony was 4% whereas for Percept it is only 2% so it probably would have had more chance of success.
