Re: FREE DNA TESTING TO FIND GENDER
It is called a cell free DNA test and goes by different brand names. The purpose is to screen for trisomies and other potential birth defects. A 'side effect' of the test is that they are able to see if there is a Y chromosome which makes it a boy or lack there of telling you it's a girl.
I believe if you are over 35 most insurances cover it but I have heard stories that some did not order the gender portion of the test. Otherwise the test is $300 or more I believe.
Right, just wanted to throw that out there so that OP could check with her office on their policies.
