Which Blood testing do you recommend?

I am 37 and 5 weeks pregnant with baby #4. I have been reading about many different blood tests that can be pulled to check for the health of your baby. Have you had any luck or preference?

I've done the Harmony test. Told me the gender and what not.

I did the MaterniT 21 with both my pervious pregnancies. You provider and lab will be contacted with specific companies, and will likely only offer 1 option. I think they all give you the basics for generics.
