AHHH! We know the gender of Baby #2! Actually we found out at 9 weeks. There is this awesome company called SneakPeek. They make an at home blood test kit that detects the gender of your baby around 9 weeks! Are you dying to find out what we’re having??!
It’s a BOY!!!!!!
I took my SneakPeek test at 9 weeks pregnant. The test comes in a little box with all the necessities inside. You prick your finger with the little needle kit provided and you ship your sample to their lab! Within 24 hours of receiving the sample, they will email you the gender of your baby! And guess what?! They are 99% accurate!
How does it work?
SneakPeek® utilizes the natural process of shared fetal DNA circulating inside the mother’s bloodstream. From the small sample of blood you supply via a finger stick they are able to test for the presence of male DNA. If it is detected then the baby’s gender is male and if it is not detected then the baby’s gender is female.
Because of this science, there are a few rules when using this kit. You don’t want it to pick up on any male DNA (besides your baby, if it’s a boy!). So because of this, Dave was not home when I did the test. I didn’t want to contaminate it by having it pick up Dave’s DNA. You should also do this on a table (clean it throughly, first), as opposed to the bathroom.
How do you actually get your blood sample?
The kit comes with these easy little finger prickers. It comes with more than one just in case you need another one. You take the top off, and push it into one of your finger tips until it pops. Then you fill up a tiny blood sample bottle by holding your finger over it. The finger pricking part didn’t hurt at all, however my finger was a bit sore the following day. Getting the blood into the little tube was the hard part for me. I thought I was not going to have enough blood, but OMG. blood was literally going everywhere LOL! It honestly looked a bit like a murder scene on my kitchen table.
Would you recommend this?
Yes!!! I am horrible at waiting. I loved being able to find out the gender at 9 weeks instead of at the 20 week ultrasound. This kit arrived SO fast, and it was fairly easy to collect the blood sample. Everything in the kit is very organized and clean. And once you ship the sample out, they notify you every step of the way. They let you know when they get the sample, and then they email you so fast with the gender results! It’s awesome!
The kit also comes with cute tattoos so once you find out the gender, you can rock the tattoo!
We are SO SO SO excited to have a boy!!!!!
