Jack and Jill gender test?

I saw a post about someone getting one done. I looked into it and it's a blood test and cost like $200. Am I correct? Also, does anyone know how accurate it is/is it worth it?

Re: Jack and Jill gender test?

  • Idk about that but I'm going in for an NT scan just to see if they're able to guess. My OB said this office has a 98 accuracy and I think everything's covered by my insurance so it's the cheaper option.
  • I looked it up too.  It was over 99% accurate.  I can't remember the number right after the decimal.  I thought about trying it, but I would rather splurge on a 3D ultrasound later on.  Finding out at 20 weeks will give me plenty of ti

  • I guess I really don't get gender tests-at all. Why can't you wait till 20-22 weeks to get an actual accurate answer?

  • I won't do that test, but I can definitely understand why people want to find out asap. I'm so impatient and can't wait to find out! I don't know of it has to do with my loss history or what, but I think it will feel so much more "real" once I know baby's
  • Since I'm AMA were are having the maternity 21 test which as a perk also gives accurate gender. It can be done as early as 11 weeks.

    I don't think I'd pay the extra just to have a gender result this early bit since we are getting this test a

  • I had it done with DD and am going to have it done again this time. They offer it here with the NT scan. Insurance covers it, otherwise I would not get it done. It is a lot of fun to find out so early!
