Okay so I am 8 weeks and 4 days pregnant. My doctor had asked me if I wanted to do a DNA diagnostic test at 10 weeks to see if my baby is at risk for any birth defects. I agreed and he gave me the paperwork to go draw blood on 12/2/16. I was reading online about the test and heard that you can also find out the gender through the DNA testing. Has anyone done this before and found out the gender? Was it accurate? I didn't know about this before hand so I didn't get a chance to ask my doctor about it. Will they automatically know through my blood work what I'm having? I'm super anxious to find out. I have 3 boys and hoping for a girl
Re: DNA testing for baby for birth defects?
I had the testing done with my son but elected not to find out the sex, so I cannot speak for the accuracy of my own test. Most people that I know who have elected to find out the sex have had accurate results, but my cousin's told her she was having another little boy when she wound up having a girl. Your anatomy scan ultrasound should be able to confirm the sex.
