Sneak Peek Early Gender Test

Anyone else going to do a Sneak Peek blood test to find out the gender? I did it with my first baby at 9 weeks and it was correct, so now I am just waiting to hit the 9 week mark so I can do it again with this little one!

    I just read about this in Expecting Better - is this something you can just ask your doctor for if you want it?

    ETA: I just realized this is something you buy and do on your own, nevermind!

  • I had no idea a test existed so early. And now I really want it.

  • The reviews for it are pretty mixed - which they should be, since there's a 50/50 shot the company guesses right. It sounds fun to know early, but I'd rather wait and be 100% sure.

  • I think it sounds really cool but I don't want to spend the money and I think I'd have a hard time getting blood from myself! DH would be no help, he passes out at blood haha

    I've never of heard of this.  In Canada we have an U/S at 19-20 weeks and they tell you gender then if you want to know.

    That's pretty common in the US too, unless you opt for genetic screening at 12 weeks, which can tell the sex too (depending on the tests done).

  • I'm doing genetic testing at 11+5!! Just the blood test, not the amniotic one. My OB will cover part of the cost if insurance doesn't so the most I will have to pay is $99.99!

  • We are getting tge NIPTS test done at 14 weeks so will find out then.

  • We will be getting the Harmony test done at 10 weeks because my nephew has DS with a Robertsonian translocation. It is 99% accurate and we can find out the sex of the baby then if we want. It is 100% covered by insurance for us. Not sure why people wouldn't wait a week for a more accurate test.
    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*

  • We're planning on doing some sort of early genetic testing (blood test) because my husband works with sick babies and is freaked out. Added bonus would be finding out the sex but not our reason for doing it.

  •  @av2323 we are going team green! I didn't think I would feel so okay with it but I am excited about it now and actually *think* I won't hate the wait in finding out.

    We're using a birth center so our only US of the entire pregnancy would be at 20 weeks. We got a great deal (Groupon! Lol) at an ultrasound place for a scan at 15 weeks so we'll find out then. Main reason is because I'm impatient and want to see the baby 5 weeks early, but also because my mom will be down that week and I'd like for her to be there.

  • How do you qualify for the early gentic test?
  • @Theavenzor Check with your insurance and ask your doc at your first appointment.

  • Yeah you can order right from their website, but both times I have just ordered from amazon. NOTE: Check your SPAM folder. My confirmation email went there!!!!
  • I find reading most of the reviews that a lot of times it is user error. Basically the test is searching your DNA sample for male DNA, so lets say you are having a girl, but your husbands DNA accidentally contaminated your sample, maybe his dead skin cells somehow came into contact, then your result would show male DNA. Also, i waited until about 11 weeks, just to be sure my sample would be STRONG.
  • @DuchessOfCambridge if you know anyone who is a nurse, they could come by and do it for you. That's what I did!

    How much blood does it need? Like more or less than a finger stick to check blood sugar? 

    Last pregnancy we did a pee in a cup gender prediction kit and it was just for fun. But the company mentioned above has a money back guarentee. So they seem pretty confident.
