Have any of you used this? Accurate results? It's kind of expensive but it seems fun...

I did this for fun when I was pregnant with my son. The result said boy so it was right for me. I'm probably going to do it again this time around--its fun but I don't take it too seriously, I've heard of it being wrong for lots of people.

It was wrong for my sister but I might still try it.  Why not?

Did it read "boy" for your sister and did she have a girl? I heard that there's more of a possibility of it having false positives for boys.

Well, I just took it, and it said "boy." Now we wait 10 weeks and see if it's right!

I took intelligender and bestbaby brands with my last one. Intelligender said boy and was right. Bestbaby was pretty much a dud and the results were inconclusive. In one kind of lighting it was boy, in another it was girl. A few weeks ago I took Gendermaker. That brand wasn't out with my last pregnancy, and it has many more positive reviews and a much higher accuracy (and is also cheaper) than intelligender. So I did that one about a month ago and it was  mixed result. I emailed the company with the results and they are sending a replacement. I don't put real weight on any of these just because of the incredible amount of negative reviews they all get. I think it's just fun.

Just an update to say I took the replacement GenderMaker test and it was, again, a mixed result. It's really dumb to have a test that can come out either blue, pink or PURPLE, and very frequently comes out purple, lol. At least the other brands attempt to choose one side or the other, but this one sort of just says, "ummm...not sure...your guess si as good as ours!" lol. I would love to get the Intelligender test and do it just to compare with my results from the last pregnancy, but I don't think I or hubby would spend $30 for another guess. Ultrasound is in 20 days!

Whoops!  Sorry lost this thread.  My sister's said "girl" and she had a boy.  

 

I have taken it twice- once each trimester.  I've either had coupons or "up rewards" each time so I've not had to pay for it.  I got a boy result each time.  But I guess we'll just have to see!

Did anyone see this article in the New York Times today:

 

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/10/health/10birth.html

 

It's about at home DNA testing kits to determine the gender.  They state the test they refer to in the article, Pink or Blue, has a 95% accuracy at 7 weeks, 99% at 20.

 

http://www.tellmepinkorblue.com/Pregnancy-Test-Gender-Test-Kit.php

 

I know many of us are now at the point where our ultrasounds will reveal the gender, but for those of us who are foregoing ultrasounds, would you consider this? 

 

As a side note, that same article states that independent studies show Intelligender is 90% accurate.  I am pretty sure I am going to go to the drugstore today on that note!

I'm foregoing ultrasounds and may just give Pink or Blue a try!  It would just be for fun and I would definitely not take the results as fact.  orngbiggrin.gif

I was just going to post about Pink or Blue. Too bad it's so expensive or we'd definitely do it if the ultrasound doesn't give us an answer.

I think the test advertising can be very misleading. Yes, the kit is $25, but you have to pay the lab fees, which can be more than $300! Definitely not something I would do just for fun. Plus, when I looked into the blood tests before, they were really, REALLY strict about how to take the test as far as not having any male contact for a certain number of hours, etc. Maybe they've changed now, but it used to be that you had to completely sanitize and sterilize the area, couldn't have contact with any males (even your children) and couldn't even have them in the same room where you were testing. Something about how just a tiny speck of dna from a boy could alter the test.

A post made to this thread under the username "Rebecca Griffin" has not been approved due to the copyright violation it commits in reproducing a full article. As well, the person placing the post is a new member with no other post to the forums. Using the full name of the person under litigation as a username raises doubt about the sincerity and intent of the person registering to post this information.

We found out today we're having a girl, so Intelligender was WRONG!
