Jack or Jill Test/Gender Test???


Hello Ladies,

I am just entering this second Tri thing today...

Just at 12 weeks and 2 days I had big ultrasound and blood work done for Jack or Jill test/Gender test? Same test for any down syndrome (hope not for any)

The lab people was telling me that this test is 99.9% accurate about gender test because it is based on blood work.

The results are not in yet (takes 7-10 business days)

I was wondering if anybody had this type of gender test done? If so, how is your experience?
I see lot of you are waiting till 20th week to find out gender, I guess that is based on ultrasound or something.

Please share your experience.

Hi,

My doctor told me. She gave me option for down syndrome test and this jack or jill test (if we are interested in finding gender).

We decided to go for both test. I had my blood work and ultrasound done last week, waiting for results.

I am surprised that you ladies have not heard of this test. The clinic and my doctor were very sure about this test and assuring me to have result which is 99.9% accurate.

I've never heard of it either, so I'm off to google it, but the thread title just made me laugh because I have 2 dogs named Jack and Jill.

There's a thread about it on In Gender http://www.in-gender.com/cs/forums/t/124711.aspx and from what they say it seems about 99% accurate! wow.. but it also sounds like it's not something that's offered everywhere... and often it isn't covered by the insurance.

Hmm! if I'd been offered it I'd have taken it.. as it is I have to wait another few weeks to find out! nooo!!

Hi,

After reading these comments, I also realized that this test is not offered everywhere.
Jack or Jill test can be done in the first trimester (11-13 weeks).
They say that recently research labs have found that a baby's DNA is floating in the mother's bloodstream, allowing researchers to screen for certain conditions, as well as gender, as early as 11 weeks.
