Testing for the Sex of Your Baby

If you are pregnant, the odds are quite good you’re curious whether or not you’re going to have a boy or a girl. It goes with the territory. You want to know if your baby will be healthy. Will your baby look like mom or dad? What color eyes will he or she have? Yes, the sex of the baby is also a curious point. Are you going to have a boy or a girl? Well, perhaps you've heard advertisements for home test kits designed to tell if you’re going to have a girl or a boy. In fact, a test kit is available over the Internet claiming to be able to tell a woman who’s just six weeks pregnant, whether she’s having a boy or girl. At the present time, the best techniques are those used by health professionals. These include: Chorionic villus sampling, which can be done quite early; you can have amniocentesis, which is done later; and even later, just by simply doing a very accurate, detailed pelvic ultrasound. As for the test kit, let the buyer beware.

We always appreciate your comments.
