    I would just wait for the ultrasound. I’m in nursing school and I’m taking OB right now an I’ve never heard of this test. I’d seriously doubt its validity, but I’ll ask my instructor about it.

    @bananasareyellow:  i would honestly just wait til 13 weeks if you plan on getting the NT scan? and look at the nub theory.. thats 95% accurate…

    I would be extremely skeptical of anything of amazon like that… i know what you mean im 16 weeks saturday and just dying to know what im having, im hoping to find out a week from tmrw at my scan… but i would say just wait and get an elective ultrasound at about 15-16 weeks… thats still earlier then a lot of people find out plus you get a fun ultrasound out of it and a goodies picture.. not a piece of paper stating the DNA is a girl/boy. that seems truthfully no fun to me… so i guess thats an IMO answer


    but as far as the test goes, out of all the bees on here who are so excited to know what they’re having and stuff and I’ve never heard of this. maybe i havent spent enough time on google lol. but im in the december mamas group and we have a private FB group and all of us are just DYING to know what were having there’s only about 2-3 team greens.. and i just feel like someone would have known about this.

    Lulz. These things are pretty terrible. My godson’s mother took one and it told her her baby was a girl. Well, he most definitely was not a girl.

    While my one experience doesn’t prove anything, but I think it’s silly to trust a test like this to tell you anything. I’d wait for an ultrasound.

    I wouldn’t do it. For 1 I would doubt the results & 2  if I test at 10 weeks and it says girl them miscarry at 11 weeks it will make it harder (at least for me) knowing the sex.

    I just dont share the need to know, so I definitely would not purchase the test. It seems a waste of money to me for something Im going to find out eventually. That $100 could go into the baby`s college fund.

    That intrigues me, but so does the Intelligender test. Not sure if it’s valid though.

    The Maternit21 testing in Canada costs over $2000 so there’s no way I’m paying that. Guess I’m waiting til 20 weeks.

    @Lyndzo:  look into the cost of an elective ultrasound! those usually range 50-100 dollars! also the Maternit21 is ONLY for high risk patients as far as i know… if you are over 35, or have history of the trisomy’s. i believe it is fairly new. have you looked into the Harmony testing?

    Independent industry like that Amazon testing company wouldn’t typically publish in a peer reviewed journal. They would just do their own clinical test (which may or may not be large enough to be as statistically significant like an FDA-approved test). I’m a molecular biologist – any joe shmoe company can sequence DNA very cheaply so long as they have the correct primer sequence – which in this case, is available in the public domain. I may just make my own primers at work and sequence myself, haha.

    FWIW I think the $500 test is a better deal – knowing the risks of those diseases from such a non-invasive test is a huge deal. I will definitely pay for that myself in the future.

    @bananasareyellow:  Yup only in the US.


    @gpsp2B:  We don’t have harmony here. We can do elective ultrasound but every place I’ve contacted says they require my 18-20 week scan from my doctor. I asked my doctor if there’s any other options and she said no I just have to wait until 20 weeks. I feel like Canada is insane with these rules.
