Hey, Everyone! I'm back from a mini vacation and so happy to see so many results come in! Even happier to see everyone so happy with their u/s results!

So far, Intelligender is actually right on target for what they advertise, which is 80% accuracy! And they also say girl results are more accurate than boy results, which I suppose is a little hard to judge seeing as how I'm the ONLY one who actually got a girl result!

Who's next to find out their baby's sex?

*hugs* segrau. I remember you from the ttc forum. You were doing shettles, right? I'm sorry you didn't get a girl, but I'm glad you found out so you have time to adjust.

did any of you feel like intelligender was a little ambiguous? I went ahead and took it for kicks and giggles since I'm not planning on finding out at my ultrasound in a few weeks and following the directions exactly I had it sitting on the white paper and the results looked yellow but I saw all this powder still floating on the top. I thought well maybe I didn't give it a full 10 seconds of twirling and I gave it one more twirl and the results turned green. Then when I would look at it against the backsplash of my counter it still looked green and when I looked at it from the backsplash it looked yellow. Hubby thought green so I guess I'll go with boy. Just really confusing!

Hi Echo,
There were definitely crystals in my test that never dissolved, and they told me that was normal. Did you wait the allotted time and then view the results at eye level? If it looked yellowish at eye level after the allotted time, then I would say it's a girl result. (The results are no longer valid if you mix/swirl it after the initial 10 seconds, because remixing will turn it green either way.)

You could probably contact them and tell them you had ambiguous results, as I've heard they'll send you a replacement test. They'll also interpret the results for you if you take a picture and send it to them. Worth a try at least, right?

I would contact the company. Ours turned dark olive green after the first few minutes and stayed dark green. There were a few crystals that never dissolved, the the overall color of the liquid never changed.

Goodluck.

Based on your description, this would be a girl result. The sediment, though it's not a part of your result, can often have a misleading affect (making the test appear greenish at different angles). It's only caused when a test isn't swirled rapidly enough but can be disregarded. The only thing that matters is the urine color. Please let me know if this answered your question and again when you confirm!

so... that means I have girl via intelligender and boy via best baby... looks like it's still up in the air.

Personally, I liked Intelligender because they could at least tell me what the success rate of the test is. (And they could tell me success rates for home users and lab tests, lab test results being slightly better than home test results.) And so far, according to our own little study, the success rate of the results is spot on to what the company said! Best Baby seems like a newer company and they don't offer a lot of information, plus our own DDC mates haven't had the best experiences with that test. So I'd definitely trust the Intelligender more than the Best Baby. (That's just me, though!)

Echo, let me know if you're going to retake the Intelligender test, or if you want me to post your current result (and what you're reading it as). I know you're hoping for a boy, and I've got my fingers crossed for you!

ETA - Oops! Scratch that last part about retesting. I saw your post on my Blackberry and the quote from Intelligender didn't show up in my email notification, so I didn't even see it until just now! I'll mark you as a girl result, and still keep my fingers crossed for your boy!

I'm sorry, ombrooklyn!

If you don't mind, may I ask what the health issues are? Of course, please don't feel pressured to answer if you don't want to share.

thanks! I'm coming to terms with it.
My boys have hemophilia, which means their blood does not clot. Mostly scary when it comes to bleeding internally. They will still lead normal lives in a way but it makes it very stressful on me. A fall/bump to a normal child can put us in the hospital. hope that makes sense.

Desiring a specific gender because of a health issue is a totally different thing than being devastated because you didn't get what you wanted. I'm very sorry, hemophilia is a very serious thing. Are you the carrier? I had to look it up, but I read that you still have a 75% chance of your son being born without it. (I got this info from the internet, I would trust your info more as you are living it.) I hope everything works out for you and your family.

Amy, the chances of have an unaffected child is 75%. Once you find out it's a boy it drops to 50/50 depending on whether the boy gets that particular gene from mom or dad. In this case I am the carrier. Unfortunately, in my family, not one male yet has been lucky enough to not be affected. Plus, I don't know how I would feel about having one with it and one without....
Normal things for other boys like playing football and losing teeth are difficult or not even possible for mine. If I had been given a girl I have no doubt that my life would be easier (along with my childs), with less stress and worry and hospital visits.
Thanks for all the hugs and understanding. I'm still slightly angry that these are my cards but what choice do I have but to play.
Thanks for offering the hugs and support ladies and sorry for the novel.

I'm glad you're feeling a little better and coming to terms with it. But man, what a difficult situation to deal with! I would be a walking pit of anxiety in your situation. More power to you!!! Here's to hoping that BOTH your little boys stay happy and healthy.

Intelligender: Boy
Best Baby: Boy
Ultrasound: Girl

So... Those pee-tests were way wrong for us!!!!

Intelligender was right for me. I took it at 12 weeks, and it read that it was a boy! Today at 20 weeks I found out from my doctor that it is. So it was fun to do and also accurate in my case. I would recommend it.boc.gif
