Baby Gender Mentor Home DNA Testing Kit


There are couples who wait until delivery to find out the sex of their baby, and there are those who want to know in advance. And for those who really, and I mean REALLY, just can't wait for that 20 week ultrasound, the Baby Gender Mentor Home DNA Testing Kit can tell you the sex of your baby as early as 5 weeks after conception. The technology has been in the works for 14 years and is over 99.9% accurate. All you need is a few drops of your blood to detect the genetic fetal chromosomal DNA that determines gender.

Now I'm the type who can't wait to find out because I just need to know, but this all seems so, well...clinical, and just takes away any element of surprise and anticipation. Aside from the reassurance that your baby is healthy and has 10 fingers and 10 toes, isn't that the fun of having the 20 week ultrasound? So you can stare at that lovely, but crude image of your baby in utero and try to make out what's between the legs?

I haven't done any research on this topic, personally, but there was an interesting story on NPR a few months ago that raised serious questions about this DNA test, its accuracy, and the supposed science backing up its claims: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4952404
