DNA Gender Determination Results at 12 Weeks: True or False

You may recall how I was taking the Jack and Jill tell me what I am having test at 9 weeks to determine (a little early) what number 5 may be. With 4 sweet girls already, Mr. Darling is really pulling for that boy. As for me, I am fine with 5 girls. I ask myself all the time just what I would do with a boy. He most likely would always be in a bow-tie because bows pretty much run our house.

Well, on Wednesday, I got my gender determination results back via email — it screamed GIRL!

And so the attached PDF read…

Prenatal Gender Determination Results: A DNA analysis of the maternal blood sample provided has been completed. IT’S A GIRL! Our laboratory has analyzed the blood sample submitted for gender testing. We have tested the blood sample for the presence of Y chromosome DNA in maternal plasma. Results: Test result is Negative for the presence of Y chromosome DNA in the maternal plasma sample. This results indicates a 98% probability of a baby girl.

So, here is the “but”: My best friend, who is 5 weeks ahead of me, took the same DNA test. And well, it said girl too. However, a few weeks went by and after 3 sonos, she is 100% welcoming a little boy in September.

I want to know what you think about this whole early gender testing. You can get the details in my post from a few weeks ago. I can tell you one thing, I am going to beg them to peek at my sono this week. The earliest I have ever found out 100% is at 14 weeks but a girl can only hope. As long as baby number 5 is healthy and I go full-term, I will be one happy momma!

Did you do a DNA Gender test? Would you believe it?

Tell me: Should I start buying more bows?
