MaterniT21!!

I went for my NT scan last Wednesday, DH's birthday. I was also told about and opted for the MaterniT21 test...come to find out when I get the results they can tell me if I am having a boy or a girl to a 90% certainty too!:o Now I am even more impatient for the results!!

MaterniT21 ? I don't know anything about that! Is it a blood test? An amnio? A u/s?

Very cool about the sex!!! We found out DD's sex from the genetic testing...100% accuracy but I still was anxious to actually see her. Part of me thought they tested my DNA. BA HA HA!

It's cell free fetal DNA testing, they find the fetal cells in the maternal blood plasma. They check X chromosome cells by comparing to maternal DNA cells and obviously Y chromosome would mean a boy!

Wow! That's so cool! I've always wondered about doing the testing that way. Hopefully one day we won't need to get needles in our bellies of DNA tests!

It tests for three trisomy disorders 21, 18 and I think 13. It took a week to get the results in and it was all good, no trisomies detected and no Y chromosomes either! We are having another girl!
