If not knowing whether you’re having a Sophie or a Steve is keeping you up at night, we suggest first picking up the phone and calling your OB-GYN. She might know just the right thing to say that will not only ease your mind, but also make the wait a bit more bearable.
While we’ve found parents who decide to wait for the big surprise on “labor day” are rarely let down, we know that for others (you included!) it is simply impossible to remain in the dark! And from a practical standpoint, finding out means it’s a bit easier for you to prep the nursery and purchase layette items. So if you really, truly need to know and can’t wait another nano-second, there is a product on the market that might just be for you. It is called Intelligender and it is the only urine-based gender test available that can be performed in the privacy of your own home. In as early as 10 weeks of pregnancy, you can know if you’re having a boy or a girl. With a proven accuracy of 90 percent, it’s a fun way to soothe your nerves and curiosity so you can move on to the next big question—names!
