DNA testing

Where did you send off your kid's DNA to have to tested to see if they are identical, and how much did it cost?  I have no clue on this type of thing, and since Carson's surgery, they look a lot alike.  I also went and got their medical records, and found out they have the same blood type.  ALSO, on the delivery summary, the weight of the placenta on both of their summaries was the exact same to the gram!  That makes me wonder if I only had one placenta....they never told me after I had the boys.   They thought they had fused during one of my ultrasounds, but they werent positive.  I'm suddenly really curious...

Re: DNA testing

  • We used Affiliated Genetics.  You can google their website and then order the kit (and pay the fee) all online and then they will send you a testing kit with instructions.  Once you do the swabs you just mail it back to them and then they will send you the results.

    I say do it, I don't regret spending the money for the test, I am so glad to just know.

  • I actually used DNA solutions instead of affiliated genetics (heard great things about affiliated though!) and results are 99.9% accurate, quick and easy and got the results back within 1.5 weeks of sending them in. It was $100

    Thanks! I've been thinking about doing this as well and this company would save me $50. Now, to convince DH...
