MaterniT21 Test

Hi, Lurker with a question.

If you had this test done... Were they able to accurately tell you the gender of your LO?

  • Yes along with the 10 or so ultrasounds we had and an amnio, we had no doubt it was a girl.

    If you remember: how many weeks were you when you got the MaterniT21 test done?

  • I don't think they are supposed to tell u the gender based on the Mat21 test bc it's done so early and they are worried people will use it to select gende/terminate based imon gender. I think ours was done at 9 weeks.

    Mine was done much later than normal, a few weeks after my 20 week AS because they thought there was something very wrong with LO. I did it before the amnio as I was worried about the miscarriage risk with an amnio. I ended up doing the amnio when I was hospitalized around 27 or 28 weeks.

    p I hadn't heard this either, but I have heard of some countries wanting the a/s at 30 weeks for the same reason!
