I’m totally one of those moms who is super-planner-woman. When it comes to finding out the sex of my babies I’m not one to wait until their birth to find out. I totally applaud those mommas and think it’s neat but SO not me. I need to know if I can buy girlie or boyish clothes, pick out a name, and make sure everything in general is set.
While our first sonogram technician was very clinical in letting us know our daughter was a girl we’re still very excited to find out the sex of this baby that will join us in Spring of ’10. In our talk about gender predicting using wives tales we’ve come across Intelligender. Maybe you’ve heard of it too.
This product is becoming increasingly popular and was recently featured in Parents magazine. Basically it’s an affordable at home urine test that allows you to not only find out the gender of your unborn baby but also find it out earlier than a 2nd trimester gender ultrasound in which is usually given around week 18 to week 20.
Intelligender allows you to take this test as early as 10 weeks. For those parents who are extremely excited to find out the gender and just can’t wait for the doctor’s appointment this is a fun option. While results are not 100% they do stack up at 82%-90% accurate. I have a few friends who have had positive results.
In my very brief research of this product (as I’m hoping Intelligender will send me a sample to test my results,) I have found a number of complaints in regards to the test not being right. I have found however that in many of these cases the women are either taking the test before 10 weeks and also waiting longer for the results than listed in the instructions. I’m sure that not following the test exactly would give you mixed results.
Although I can wait for my ultrasound, (which I’m ever so excited about and thinking it’s a boy,) it would be fun to test one of these out. Intelligender is sold in many retail drugstores. Check out http://intelligender.com/ if you’re interested in finding out more about this product.
