I haven’t tried it but I’ve heard that they’re 50/50 odds (so as good as it would be to just guess). 

There’s a blood test your doctor can do if there’s genetic issues in the family, I believe called the Materni21 test. A few of the bees had it done early in pregnancy.

@oldmatron:  9 weeks after AF? Your baby’s genitals don’t start developing until week 11 (which goes by the date of your last period)…

However, I know there is some blood test that can detect the chromosomes at 10 weeks. I don’t know anything about the specifc gender detection test you’re asking about though.

I would be wary if this is an at home type of thing. I don’t think I could trust it especially since u/s techs can’t even accurately guess the sex of the baby at the 12 week NT scan.

@oldmatron:  Like previous poster said, ask for a Maternity 21 test when you go for NT testing (about 11-13 weeks).  They will do the same thing (test your blood to see if there is y chromosome from the baby) as Pink or Blue, but I would trust the results more.

There is also a genetic test that is new (within the last 6 months) that is done after you complete your 10th week, called the Harmony Test. It is fairly expensive to have done out of pocket (between $550-750), BUT most insurances are now covering this test because it is a genetic test that can be done in place of the NT testing. Harmony is a diagnostic test that looks for chromosomal abnormalities, and can also tell you the baby’s gender based on the chromosomes. The test is 99% accurate.

We are having the test done on the 13th, and will have the results back in two weeks.
