Have you had The Harmony Prenatal Test?!

Have any of you had or heard of the Harmony Prenatal Test?  It's something my doc wants me to do at 10 weeks and whilst it's something I think is very beneficial I just wanted to know if anyone has experienced it??

I didn't with my son but I will request it with our next one mainly because of my age - I will be 32 this summer when we plan on TTC and the risks go up the older you get :(


Is it the blood test one or the u/s?

I've heard of it and asked my OB about it. She siad it's still relatively new and mostly only ordered for Mom's 35 yrs and above or those who might be higher risk.


FYI, it's a blood test that looks deeper into genetics and can actually tell you the sex of the baby as well.

I had the Harmony Test back in December. I posted about my dilemma with my 1:85 chance of Tri21 results. I work in a Genetics lab and decided not to do the amnio based on cost and fears of miscarriage. I was still early and having cramping issues sometimes. I did receive a bill from the Harmony test and only was charge $150 after insurance covered majority of the test. I called the Genetic Counselor that gave me my results to ask about sex, she said the Harmony test suppose to be adding that on in the next few months but she did not the sex. The Materni21 suppose to offer that currently.

From what I understand it's quite beneficial - I was quoted ?180 for it as well as the Nuchal Scan. The tests will be by bloods at 10 weeks and I'll get the results the day of my 12 week scan. I'm kinda nervous about it.
