pregnancy testIt is now possible to find out your baby’s gender at only 7 weeks pregnant!  Can you imagine that?  You just found out you’re pregnant and a few short weeks later, you can know what sex your baby is.  A blood test can separate mom’s blood from baby’s.  If any Y chromosomes are found, it’s a boy (since mom doesn’t have any Y chromosomes).  If not, it’s a girl.  The test is 95% and 98% accurate.  Unfortunately, it’s still not available for every day use.  We still have to wait until the sonogram at 20 weeks.

Would you find out the sex of your baby that early?  Do you usually like to be surprised on birth day?

    Hmm…interesting article there. I’m not sure if I’d be inclined to do it that early or not. Even though 20 weeks is always so far away, at least it’s the half way mark and gives you a goal. Finding out so early seems like it would stretch the pregnancy out a LONG time!

    Wow, that is early to find out the baby’s sex. I always liked to be surprised myself.

    Wow..I don’t think I’d want to find out that early. With our youngest, we actually didn’t want to find out the gender, but when we were getting the ultrasound done at 20 weeks, we could clearly see without being told. Also, I know it isn’t a common problem in our culture, but this makes me wonder if there would be people who would abort if they found out the gender that early and it wasn’t the gender they were hoping for…

    I really loved finding out the sex of my babies at birth! I don’t think I could ever be interested in knowing in advance. All my baby clothes were neutral anyway, and they never use their nursery for about 2 years, so it would not have made things ‘easier’ for me!
