You can have it in U.K. but only at private clinics. Around 400. If it's just to find out Sex you may as well wait a few weeks and get an early gender scan privately but if it's for abnormalities then it's worth doing.

As above we found the 400 + price tag just too expensive, we didn't go for a private scan in the end either though as we never found the time.

Its a shame we don't have the sneakpeek here in the UK!! at $79 that's brilliant!!. I've seen it for 399 on the babybond website and I know that's so so much money!. I think i'm going to wait!.

I'd only be doing it for the gender as I don't even do the NHS downs screenings.

Its so hard to wait knowing there is something that can tell me earlier though LOL. Its too much money I know! BLAHH

There's something called Nimble Diagnostics, have a look at that! Think it's about 180. I'm in the school of preferring to wait a few extra weeks and get a scan instead if I do decide to find out the gender, but there are blood tests available online here too if you want to know!

That's an amazing price! Don't know where in the uk you are but reckon they're all expensive here in London. There's a "just gender" scan baby bond so that's 39 but it's 18+ weeks only and there's no 3D/4D. I'm trying to convince myself to go team yellow anyway!

That's with Window to the womb, they have a few clinics around London I believe, I'm in Nottingham but think their prices are the same nationwide too.

Here is a list of all of their clinics

Hope you have one near you!. x

I got the Harmony test done with my first baby and plan to do it with my second. I don't have to pay anything out of pocket and I think the lab part is like 300 bucks. I'm from the US so i dunno how it differs from the UK though.

I think I will be paying for Harmony as I am 35+, but I will be asking them to keep the gender a secret from us as we want it to be a surprise! I will only be doing it to know about any potential problems. I can just imagine lots of you thinking 'oh noo what a waste!' haha. My friend did the same (she's over 35 too) and they requested gender details not be revealed to them.

Those ladies that had the harmony test done, did you do it in addition to (before or after) the NT scan/risk result?

I would like the harmony test or equivalent done (for potential genetic problems but knowing the sex would be a bonus too) but DH thinks the NT result would be sufficient.

I read that although still a screen it is more accurate. I'm 35 and 12 week scan this week...I guess I might as well see what that result is before I book a harmony....
