This review has been long time coming! I had planned to do this review back in November after I hit about 11 weeks. Unfortunately, we lost that pregnancy just after the 11 week mark. The good news is that I am now able to do the review! That's right...I'm pregnant!! And I am beyond thrilled that Intelligender was willing to work with me!
A little background: I first found out about Intelligender as a member on the What to Expect When You're Expecting forums. Hubby and I actually waited until after our 20-week ultrasound, hoping we would find out what we were having at that point. Of course, we have a VERY stubborn little girl. Fuss refused to "show" her parts. She even went as far as covering herself with her hand at one point! We laughed, but admittedly we were disappointed. Enter Intelligender. We found our first Intelligender test at our local Rite-Aid. So, we bought it...we figured we didn't have anything to lose at that point.When I took the test, it came out with a GIRL result! :D We weren't sure whether to believe it or not, but it was fun.
|Test bottle, syringe, and instructions.|
The instructions are SUPER simple! Use first morning urine (um, obviously I didn't photograph that part!), pee in a cup like a Dixie cup or something else disposable, draw up the correct amount in the syringe, and inject in the test bottle. Swish. Wait.
Left, you can see the powder that makes the magic of the test along with the color strip for comparing your sample with.
So, how exactly does it work?
From Intelligender's website: IntelliGender's Gender Prediction Test™ is a simple urine analysis similar to the pregnancy test you took a few weeks ago. It uses first morning urine and a proprietary mix of chemicals which reacts with a combination of hormones to indicate the gender of your baby. It can be performed as early as 10 weeks of pregnancy (six weeks from the first day of the missed period). It is an easy test to perform and provides quick results in-home so the news can be shared right away.
Not a clue! But I do know that the test was accurate for Fuss. I can hope it is accurate this time around and we will be able to find out in a few more weeks what Baby #2 is. I really like that I could test so early (10 weeks, 3 days) and get a pretty good guess as to what we're carrying this time - Intelligender's site shows 2 studies that estimate an 85% to almost-90% accuracy rate!
