Harmony testing.


Is anyone considering the harmony testing to find out the gender early?

I really really want to know as soon as possible but wondering if I should just have more patience LOL

I've considered it. Not even sure my hospital even offers it though.

Not sure if any NHS hospitals offer it, I think its just private clinics that do it. Babybond do it I believe but its pricey!. If I waited a few more weeks I could know from a scan for a fraction of the cost!

That's kinda where I'm at. I can get a private scan at 16 weeks for way less. My dh wants to just wait.

I had it done as insurance covered it as I'm over 35. You also find out if there's any chromosomal issues so for me it was worth it.

If you want to know early (i couldn't wait myself!) and you're not concerned about chromosomal issues I'd suggest looking into sneakpeek. It's an at home blood test that can get you results in 3 or 7 days depending on what you want to pay. I'm just not sure if it's a states only thing or not.

Thanks! This is exactly what I want. And I can do it 7 weeks sooner and it's only a little more expensive than the ultrasound .

No problem! I tried the harmony test first and they couldn't run it for some reason so this test really was my sanity saver. If you use the code 12foryou you'll get $12 off too. I think they're also still doing a contest for a free giveaway of one.

I was going to. Had a gyn who does 50% for cash payment, so it would be just under $400 instead of $800. It was offered at a similar price by request through Jaiser (they only do it standard for AMA), but then I wouldn't be allowed to get the California screening (bloodwork first and second tri and the nt scan). But my mom and gyn got on my case and started listing all the things I could buy for $400. Then, my mom said if I could toss out $400 then she wasn't buying the crib and since my having $400 laying around was because she was buying the crib... lol

What I ended up doing was paying $70 for a private 4D gender scan at 16w3. Which, when you think about it, you have to be 10 weeks to do the harmony and results take a week at least. So really if you think of it like that it's just a month longer and saves a lot more money.

So hindsight, I'm so glad I listened to my mom and gyn and put that money towards spoiling my son. I did old wives tales in the meanwhile, posted in the gender prediction, ask the nt tech what she thought, and did gender experts in the meanwhile
