That doesn't sound safe

Mother of one, with another on the way

If there was a way to tell the gender that was good enough for a Doctor, then they would use it. Even ultrasounds aren't 100%. I have known many people that were told it's a girl at every ultrasound until they delivered a boy. It's not usually that you're told a boy and then it's a girl, it's that sometimes things don't "pop up" if you know what I mean, haha.
I wouldn't recommend Intelligender to anyone who just wants to get a jump start on painting the nursery. It's more for fun like having your palms read or checking your horoscope. Yes, there are some that live by it, but it's not something that's 100% sure.
Intelligender is definately entertaining and I'm sure that the window of opportunity that they give you to take it isn't the same for every woman. I reccomend treating it like an old wives tale.
There is not perfect way to predict the gender unless a fetal blood sample is done. It's not something routine and could cause infections, but just as FYI it's the only 100% way.
If there way a 100% way to tell by a urine sample they would have already come up with something that is used in a Doctor's office. Maybe one day they will!
Reguarding Draino, I wouldn't reccomend going near the stuff because of the fumes. But that's what husbands are for! Give it a whirl for fun it's much cheaper too.
I'm 5 weeks pregnant with my second and did not do any of the old wives tales while pregnant with my first. I'm planning on trying the Draino (with husband's help) and Intelligender.
With my first I had all the tell-tale signs of a boy, no morning sickness, the ring test, cravings everything and I know at around 16 weeks that it was a girl, and sure enough.
There was a study done that wome predicted the sex of their baby and the results were 73% accurate. That's pretty good. When you know you know! Good luck everyone!

Intelligender doesn't work!

Don't waste your money on the bogus Intelligender test!

My friend and I both took the intelligender test and it was wrong for us both. We followed the instructions exactly as printed on the box. We were supposedly having boys, and it turns out both of us had GIRLS!

I mentioned the test to my OB/GYN who happens to be one of the 5 highest rated OB/GYNs in San Diego, and she said the test is a hoax.

She was right. Save your money, folks. You'll need it for diapers.

I used http://www.tellmepinkorblue.com/ and it was correct. I knew my baby's gender at 10 weeks. Its a blood test that determines the baby's sex from fetal dna floating around in the mom's blood. I don't trust any of the other companies out there. Consumer Genetics has been in the DNA business long before it started offering gender prediction. They use the same technology that other companies use to determine paternity while the baby is still in utero. While its not 100%, it is legit science and a legit company. I will use them again. The do offer refunds.

It was right with my last pg. I am planning to try it again for this pg, too.

This is in the news today: I just read about several stories at Gender Prediction Tests. I'm going to pick one up at CVS today (I'm currently 12 weeks) and will report back on the accuracy, once I get the second trimester ultrasound.

Just take it with a grain of salt... it says on the website that it's meant to be a fun thing for Mom's to be, not a guarantee

If you want to take the test but not buy the kit, just buy some Ph testing strips. If you have a high Ph, intelligender would tell you you're having a boy. If you have a low Ph, intelligender would tell you you're having a girl. Hope that helps!
Thanks for posting this; I was trying to figure out how the test worked and frustrated that they didn't even hint a little at the answer.

I've seen this expressed before. I can't understand why a Dr would be using anything to test for gender. It's not medically necessary. If the gender is able to be seen on an ultrasound, they'll usually tell you, but it's just a fortunate side effect of having a medical procedure done. This argument makes no sense to me.

I did the test last week and it said, very clearly, girl. I have an ultrasound on thursday. We'll see if it's right!
post #29 of 39
I bought the test because I saw it in that The Bump book by The Knot and then the day after I ordered it suddenly it was available in Walgreens!

When I did it there were a few serious hoops to jump through to make sure you did the test right and no one warned me about the heat it would generate - I was a little scared for a minute.

But I won't know until September if it was accurate or not....but....considering I'm doing the whole MW HB thing I'm not getting ultrasounds and so won't be able to confirm 'till baby comes out and we can do the flip n' check LOL

But I can assure you I will be blogging and Twittering and screaming from the mountain no matter what the result.

Oh, and on the package when I read the directions it said any mistakes would yield a girl result, not boy. But maybe I read wrong or the fetus ate my bran. I should go look it up but I'm exhausted right now (yes it's not even noon yet - I am exhausted this week.) I may just be clinging to that because my result said boy...and I already have two preschool girls so am totally ready to mix it up a little!

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THE INTELLIGENDER TEST!I knew they 'claimed' to be 80-90% accurate when I took the test at 16weeks of pregnancy. However, I followed the directions to a T and when it showed the dark, pea green color indicating a boy, my husband and I subsequently became excited at the prospect of a son. We already have a beautiful, healthy little girl and we know this is our last child so, of course, we thought it would be nice to have one of each sex.Furthermore, my symptoms were very different with this pregnancy....I was sick for 2 months straight, I'm carrying differently and my skin has been very sensitive! These differences just reaffirmed to us that we were going to have a boy.We started discussing boy's names and mentally psyching ourselves up for a little boy. We had our 20week ultrasound on Friday, January 28th, 2011 and guess what? We're definitely having another girl! Don't get me wrong. We're thrilled and blessed to be bringing another healthy girl into the world, and my husband and I know we are a very lucky couple indeed.Just don't take one of these tests believing it is more than 50% accurate, because it is not!It is 50/ 50 for the obvious reason.JUST LIKE A COIN TOSS!It can cause you unnecessary disappointment, and no one wants to feel that way during such a special time in your life!

I agree with the PP... this test is a SCAM! It's right about 50% of the time, if that tells you anything!!

My daughter-in-law took the Intelligender test right after New Years And it showed that she would be having a little girl. They were extremely happy since they already have a three year old little boy. Today, after having an Ultra-sound, we found out the baby is in deed a boy. My daughter-in-law was a bit disappointed. So don't put too much into this product as it isn't a good one and we paid $35.00 for it at Walgreens.

post #34 of 39

my son and dau in law did the test and it said it was a boy and they found out this week via ultrasound that it is a boy, so for them it definitely worked!!! Good luck!!

post #35 of 39

Not a scam because it is just for entertainment. We took the test with our first and it said boy. 7 months later we had a healthy baby girl. Don't take the results seriously.

Here is the picture of the test clearing stating boy!  I do not know yet but will find out in a couple weeks and let everyone know what it says! Anybody get a test result like that then have a girl?  Let me know...I am neutral on caring which it is but it is a fun test...my boyfriend woke me up at 7am like a kid on christmas to wake up and pee in a cup so he would be able to see that alone was worth it even if it is wrong.  I am 14 weeks pregnant

It's kind of funny when people say the test "worked" for them, since the test has a 50/50 chance of being right so it will "work" for half the people who try it.  It's just as good as guessing.  I agree though these things are fun to try.  I did the Chinese gender test just for kicks, but we're not finding out the sex until the baby is born, so there's no real point in taking a bunch of different tests that would just make me crazy.

post #38 of 39

It's funny you said that because I have been so anxious that finally we got the test hoping maybe it would relax me a little bit because I want to know but it did just make things worse and more drawn out!

when i was pregnant with my first child. I didn't want to wait to know what i was having. i heard about the initelli gender test and tried it.  my results came back a smokey green wich is supose to mean a boy and when i got my ultra sound it was a boy. i didn't have enough money to test with my second kid. but now i'm close to 12 weeks myself.  i found another site called gendermaker.com.

there site says they have a test that is like a pregnancy test. it is supose to work a soon as 6 weeks and is much cheaper. so i tried it first. pink is for a girl an blue for a boy.  my test came up pink. i am very excited cause i have 2 boys already. but i wanted to be sure so i got another intelli test cause it was right for me the first time. when i took that test  it was a smokey green wich is for a boy. i am going to be very upset if in october i am having a third boy. so in my opinion the test is to exspensive but fun to try.  the test is supose to be a yellow orange for a girl. so i'm not sure what i'm having. plus both my boys heart beat was 127 and 138 an this one is 165. not to minchen both my boys never let me eat ice cream any sweets things like that. this baby constant fruits an ice cream.

so use your own judgement an good luck.
