Do you want to know the gender of your baby before it’s born? If you couldn’t tell from some of my previous posts… I do. Not only that, but I’ve been reading up about sexual positions that will get me a girl first. I’m not one for surprises.

Yea, yea, when it comes down to it, I just want a healthy baby, but let’s be honest… I want a girl I can dress up in dresses and bows.

Some of my older colleges ask “what every happened to the surprise?…Nowadays there’s no real surprises in life, why not wait until the baby is born to find out the sex?” Good question… But to me, it’s a surprise in the ultrasound room, or in the delivery room, and in my book… The sooner I find out, the better.

When I heard about Intelligender from a CNN article I knew it was something I wanted to try out for myself… but not being able to wait until I was pregnant, and having an expecting best friend who hasn’t yet hit her 20-week mark, I decided she’d be my guinea pig.

She had a guess of what the gender would be since her mom is doing ultrasounds and at about 13 weeks she had a peek at the possible gender.–Although this test says it can predict as early as 10 weeks (with about a 70-85% accuracy rating).

I sent her the Intelligender test and had her promise me she’d call me before taking it. She had to use her first morning’s urine, and I had just woken up when she called to turn my computer on… So you’ll have to forgive my looks in this video. I tried to edit in as many pictures as I could so you wouldn’t have to stare at my ugly sleepy face. Ok, so check it out!

So are you a believer yet? If you want to try it yourself you can pick one up at Wallgreens, CVS, HEB, and a bunch of other places, they’re $40… But before you run off to buy one, see if you can just win my extra test and I’ll ship it your way so you or your friend can end the suspense and see what you’re having before your half-way mark! FYI… I can’t find an expiration date on it so if you’re not having a baby yet you could always save it *wink wink* *nudge nudge*

I’m going to try something a little different for this one… I’ve seen live giveaways before and I’ve always been intrigued by them, so we’ll try it for this. Commenter #414. Why? Well because I just reached 400 followers, and because 14 is my favorite number.

Rules: You must first Tweet or facebook: “Hey! @babymakinmachin is doing a LIVE Giveaway for a cool gender prediction kit! http://tinyurl.com/mjmuls please RT!”

After that… You can comment as many times as you want but you must say a complete sentence. You can tell me why you want this, what you think of it, what you though of my video, your favorite food or leave some pre-mommy advice, whatever! Be creative! No spam though, I’ll delete spam. So good luck! I’m turning comment moderation on so you can be sneaky šŸ™‚ But I’ll be publishing a bunch of comments every now and then! So comment away!! …a bunch!

Be nice and have fun!!

-4am update 7/2: I’m turning moderation off for a little while… I woke up to go to the bathroom and decided I won’t moderate while I sleep to rack up those numbers while you can see where you’re at!
-9:30am update 7/2: Leaving comment moderation off cause I’m going to be covering a fire a million miles away today. I’ll turn it back on with I get back. Ok, so get the party going! I want to see us in the 200s when I get back!

4:00pm update 7/2: Turning comment moderation back on… But adding prizes. Comments #100. #150 and #200 will win a prize… Not sure what yet, but I’ll make it cool!… Maybe one of my baby headbands and some candy, or a hoge poge of stuff, like a pregnancy test from the dollar store and a candle, we’ll see. I’ll think about it tonight and let you know! Haha!
-12:20 am update 7/3: contest is over but it was a huge success! I’ll FOR SURE be doing another very soon! Still let me know what you think of it–Any suggestions for next time and I’ll think of another one. Also, get ready for my 400th follower giveaway, I’ll be giving away at least 5 things a day Monday-Friday next week!!


MommaYoung says:

That is very cool!

GypsyFox says:

I always wondered if these worked! I have my tubes tied so no more babies for me šŸ™ good luck to those who enter! p.s. if I come acorss any preggo blogs I’ll send them this way!

Devri says:

ok, I am in! I want one because I have 5 girls and 2 boys, and I know I am not done! wink wink.
tweeted you1

Jess says:

For my first comment ill tell you that I tweeted! https://twitter.com/4boys4now/status/2425498453

Jess says:

I don’t know why but my stupid computer is running extra slow! Did you curse me so I can’t win?

Jess says:

I wouldn’t trust this but would love to win it! They say that if you have had a boy before that it may affect the test *shrugs*

Jess says:

I LOVED your video the boys kept saying mom whose that? lol

Jess says:

I advise you to take time to rest cause boy oh boy will you be tired while preggo & after baby comes!

Jess says:

oh & don’t be surprised if your bedtime gets alot earlier!

Jess says:

Dont expect your girls to stay perky if you breastfeed they will point south! :-/

Jess says:

Oh another with child thing most ppl dont talk about is yeast infections! You are much more prone to them when expecting & they suck! No one ever told me that & I have had at least 1 with each pregnancy! Diflucan (an rx pill) is GREAT for it no creams or inserts or anything!

Jess says:

I absolutely LOVE fettucini alfredo mmmmmm what about you?

Cute video!! I wonder if she really IS having a boy!

Jess says:

So the boys are sitting here whining they are hungry, guess I better go fix them lunch! Ill be back šŸ˜€

J.D. says:

Damn I wish I knew about this months ago!! I wouldn’t take their word for it but it would be fun! I can’t wait to find out what she’s having for sure!

Tooj says:

I was one of those who didn’t want to find out the gender on my babies. šŸ™‚ I think this is a GREAT giveaway, though…..nice choice, lady! I will comment simply to up the numbers. Good luck and have fun with this. (popping over from SITS roll call)

Being a mom is one of the greatest things ever!

I wish someone had told me how tired you would be after having a baby. No sleep when you’re pregnant is different than no sleep with a cryign baby

I hope it happens fast for you and you guys don’t have to try for months!

I really want this intelligender thing! I won’t use it, but my best friend will when she gets pregnant with #2!!!

Good luck, commenter 414… I’m out

Man… comment 22, I guess I need to work a little harder haha

Jessica says:

I *may* be in need of one of these, but I would never enter drawing for pregnancy related items before formally announcing to blogiverse (or family!).

Keonte' says:

I want it because I agree with you, the sooner I find out the better. I’m not pregnant now, but I would like to use this.

Keonte' says:

Woohoo, 414. That’s how many items of PINK in the average closet for a little girl, lol.

we really need to get this party started haha

So…. I think pregnancy was one of the funnest times of my life

I just wish I had actually gotten a baby belly… I’m so jealous of those that do!!

Next time I’ll eat like a horse to get a baby belly!!

I think baby bellies are one of the cutest parts of women. It makes them so gorgeous!!

So hopefully that bumped up the comments a bit!

Pearsons says:

Soooo I think I should win by most commented default haha

Pearsons says:

But I guess if that doesn’t work, I can just keep commenting until comment 414…

Devri says:

Ok I want this badly, not for me ( i wish, but for a dear friend)

Pearsons says:

I love your conceive blog btw. It definitely will reach out to ‘future’ mamas

Devri says:

But I am afraid I won’t make it, we are heading for camp today.

Devri says:

But at least I can help the #’s for someone else right?!

Pearsons says:

I have been wanting to read the book Fully Fertile, but I haven’t gotten around to it.

Devri says:

I have been pregnant 13 times! 7 live children, 5 misscariages and 1 still born. The last is a twin who did not make it!

Devri says:

Did I mention that I am only 32 years old. Am I crazy or what?!

Devri says:

My favorite time of pregnancy is about 16 weeks to 28 weeks.. That is the most comfortable time for me..

Devri says:

There, hope that helped a little.

Devri says:

How come hardly anyone is blogging? wierd, It wasn’t this slow last year during the summer time… stupid economy.
thanks for entering my Nintendo Wii giveaway.. You rock woman. Have fun with your giveaway. I hope someone who is preggos gets it!

Jess says:

aww man I forgot about this lol darn kids!

Jess says:

I gotta go to the hardware store & get a clothesline dont get to 414 without me k?

Ms Cupcake says:

Cute blog!

Dropping by from sits. Now following your blog. The weekend is almost here. Yay! I hope you have a fun weekend planned.

Ms Cupcake.
Zen Cupcake

Pearsons says:

Wow, if we’re gonna get to commenter 414, this could be awhile…

Sweet, we’re getting there!

Just a few more comments haha

So are you super excited for BlogHer? I’m really jealous

My daughter just climbed into the cat carrier and is laughing hysterically

Oh, just finished watching Confessions of a Shopaholic. It was really funny, a must watch

Ok, so my husband is giving me the stink eye, so I had better stop for a few minutes…

Natalie says:

I’ll play – thought I’m way too early for the giveaway.

I’m happy to not be pregnant nowadays with it so hot and the economy and stress and all! That’s my mommy moment of the day!

Natalie says:

Anyway, I hope it goes to someone who can use it!

Jess says:

man made dinner (chicken fried rice & kung poa chicken) are we to 414 yet?

Jess says:

woohoo were going for a walk its so hot inside but nice out plus the boys need to wind down so yall keep chatting ill be back soon šŸ˜‰

Reiza says:

With my first pregnancy, I absolutely would have used something like this.

taysmommy says:

Found this on twitter šŸ™‚ Hubby and I will be ttc in the next few months.

Jess says:

ok were home & we even ran into the missionaries!

Jess says:

Awww I just found out my really good friend started bleeding at 11 weeks preggo & baby has no heartbeat! I am crushed for her :,(

Marly says:

I don’t really want the test but I figured I’d comment. One of the funniest things I find about what others say is that it is their experience with being pregnant and not necessarily what is going to happen to you šŸ™‚ My advice, take everyone’s advice with a grain of salt šŸ™‚

Marly says:

oh yea, I really liked the video. It’s kind of fun to see you and what you’re really like. you know, cuz just pictures don’t seem to tell the whole story šŸ™‚

joyntmadness says:

This is absolutely amazing! I think anyone would pay $30-40 for something like this. Way cool!

jineen says:

i am not expecting, but i think that this is an awesome test:) i want to know some of the things that you know on how to get a specific gender:)

Jess says:

Good morning only 66 comments eh well lets get rolling

Jess says:

So what did yall do last night?

Jess says:

Me, well I stayed up & watched days of our lives then R woke up so I changed & fed him put him back down & fell asleep watching 48 hours! Sounds like fun huh

Jess says:

I really need to get the house in order since L’s dear mother informed me yesterday that I am hosting the 4th of July! >:(

Jess says:

Uhoh I smell poop guess I better go change R!

Jess says:

I just told my friend to come play too so she should be here shortly after she leaves a facebook message

Josie says:

That is silly…. no way it works!

Jessie says:

Live giveaway, this should be interesting! Just commenting to let you know I tweeted for ya!

Jessie says:

And commenting again because I want to win! I’ll be back with more comments. I’m very intrigued by this. But not pregnant. So thank heavens for the no expiration date!

Jess says:

Why oh Why cant I wave my magic wand & have this place at least half in order!

Jess says:

& why am I so dang nauseated? I think the stress is going to kill me!

keyalus says:

I’d use one of these the next time around if it was free. I’d take the results with a grain of salt though. It ran about 60% correct with the ladies who took it on my due date board.

joyntmadness says:

I found that guys do like playing the baby shower games IF they find them interesting and they do not find the typical girly shower games interesting!

joyntmadness says:

Sun screen is the worst part of summer. The teeniest little bit touches my little girls hair and she is a grease ball for the rest of the day. Anyone have any cool suggestions for one that isn’t so greasy????

Jess says:

Ok I must go clean some more

Mrs. Cline says:

Fun Fun Giveaway! Will Tweet and keep trying to get back just in time!

Natalie

Jessica says:

Coming back to help boost the comments. Here’s a blog suggestion, change your comments so they come up in a pop up window. That way we don’t have to scroll down through 414 comments.

joyntmadness says:

Watching ESPN with the hubs…I hate ESPN!

joyntmadness says:

I think the only reason I am watching it is because I do not want to fold the laundry. I hate folding laundry!

joyntmadness says:

Wow. Apparently I ‘hate’ a lot of things! šŸ˜‰

I don’t believe none of this stuff. Everyone was so certain I was having a girl. I had a precious little boy. I really didn’t care if it was a boy or a girl, but now I’m so happy I have a boy. You’ll never be 100% sure until the day of labor.

Jess says:

wow what a day! Time to go grocery shopping, fun times!

Jess says:

To Jessica even if it comes up in a pop up you STILL have to scroll all the way down to get to 414! lol

Jess says:

ok for real im going shopping now I was waiting for L to finish brushing Zs hair woo his hair is getting LONG

What a fun idea – I would love this for my next pregnancy.

Although I am not quite sure when my next baby will be.

I’m am actually hoping sooner rather than later, but my husband isn’t so sure.

Oh, and I have to say this is really hard not knowing what number comment I am, but I am loving your live giveaway idea!!

joyntmadness says:

Playing cars with my little man…there is definietly a reason I am a girl…SO BORING! šŸ˜‰

Jennifer says:

Not too sure if it took my comment so I’m making another!

joyntmadness says:

I think it might be time to shower…it’s almost 3 PM!

Megan R. says:

I’m the world’s most impatient girl. I would LOVE this for my next!

joyntmadness says:

Have you reached 100 yet?! šŸ˜€

joyntmadness says:

Talking to my sister in law on the phone. Blah blah, blah!

joyntmadness says:

One away?! Here I was thinking I was the only one without a life and commenting! LOL! šŸ˜‰

Mrs. Cline says:

OH Man! I missed the 100 mark by one comment!

Jess says:

aww man i go shopping & your giving stuff away!

Jess says:

I really dont like when ppl ask annonymous questions on my blog with no way to get back to them :-/

Jess says:

It’s really hot here today!

Jess says:

I need to figure out really quick what im making for dinner

Jess says:

L is going to play volleyball tonight ho hum what to make

Hello gorgeous šŸ™‚ Hope all is well šŸ™‚ xx

Jess says:

The flies are out like CRAZY today ugh they’re driving me nuts!

Jess says:

I really hate being put on hold!

I absolutely loved being pregnant and can’t wait to do it again.

I really would love this when I do get pregnant…I really want to try it…and like you I really would like a girl.

Kelli says:

Well you said to keep commenting so here I am!!

You really want a girl? Have you actually looked into timing. If you conceive very close to ovulation you are more likely to have a boy, if you conceive several days before ovulation you are more likely to have a girl. This is due to the fact that the sperm that carries the Y chromosome is smaller and faster and doesn’t live as long as the sperm that carries the X chromosome, which survives longer in the body…or so the theory goes….just thought I’d share.

I am sewing my booty off tonight and just needed a blog break, thought I’d stop by….now back to work. Don’t worry I’ll be back again tonight (I know you were concerned!!)

ok…one more comment….what number are we on now?

Two words for you to investigate if you want a boy but not a girl: sperm counting. Illegal in New Zealand but not in USA or Australia.

I got luckcy and had a girl after two boys though and now approaching the puberty stage of my mothering adventure!

joyntmadness says:

I am running out of things to say! LOL!

joyntmadness says:

I think the coolest thing about being pregnant is the oneness and closeness you feel with your child…and it is only you who gets to feel that. No one else gets to spend every moment of the very first nine months with him, getting to know him. Truly amazing.

joyntmadness says:

I’m with Liz. I actually like being pregnant. You don’t hear that too often…most people are complaining! I think it fun…

you said candy…I want candy!!

sorry….just practicing for the next time I get pregnant…not that I ever had any cravings

Well no cravings other than the brownie sundaes…

Jess says:

dinner was a hit! I love when the boys ask 4 more!

Oh and banana splits…I LOVE banana splits….

Its no wonder I gained around 60 or 70 pounds with my first pregnancy….fortunately I didn’t do that with number two…

Jess says:

We had left over rice so I browned some ground beef through cream of mushroom soup in it with some sour cream & threw it on top of the rice mm mm good

joyntmadness…I loved it…I always said it was the firmest my tummy has ever been…sure it was round but at least it was firm!!

Even when it was tough {being pregnant} it was wonderful…the little movements and kicks…something about the beautiful roundness of the belly {and yes for me the butt}…I loved every moment of it!!

Jess says:

Wow the 2nd helpings are gone & they asked for thirds! I cut them off :p They NEVER ask for 3rds!

joyntmadness says:

I craved banana milk shakes & Coco Puffs with my first child.

joyntmadness says:

With my second it was BLT’s and strawberries!

Are we at 150 yet? I am curious to see when you get to 414…I am doing my best to help us along…I really want this kit!!

Jess says:

I LOVED my first pregnancy but it all went downhill from there! But my last pg even with the pre eclampsia & bedrest I still enjoyed it :p

Jess says:

wow & now they’re onto popsicles!

Jess says:

I hope they aren’t hungry in a few hours b4 bed!

Jess says:

T had a red popsicle

Jess says:

D has a orange popsicle

I sorta a little bit want to be pregnant again.. shhh don’t tell anyone! Only a little!

Jess says:

& Z has a yellow one

Jess says:

Can you guess what their favorite colors are?

Jess says:

We have to be close to 150 don’t we?

Jess says:

I wonder if L will win his game tonight?

Jess says:

I’m still pretty upset at hosting this stupid party!

Jess says:

Im drinking a diet pepsi!

Jess says:

Anyone else like diet pepsi?

Jess says:

Maybe well go for a walk later on like right before bed again!

It is SO hot in my house right now.. I am dying!

Jess says:

I wonder why Z is crying? Brain freeze? Yup

Jess says:

I need to get the boys short sleeved chrch shirts!

Jess says:

Ugh R took his dang diaper off again!

Jess says:

I may stop putting Aplix diaps on him & only use snaps (at least during the day!)

Will somebody tell my baby to nap?? i think its so hot that he can’t sleep well! We need air conditioning!

Jess says:

He has a onesie on I can’t figure out how he still manages to get out of the thing!

Jess says:

I think ill make fajitas tomorrow! Sounds good eh?

Jess says:

I need to find something to tame Zs hair its getting so fro’d out

oh i Just tweeted, I forgot i needed to do that opps!

Jess says:

But I wont cut it so don’t suggest that lol

as soon as u announce the winner ( please hurry) I’m getting this hot laptop off me!

when your pregnant are you going to find out the sex at the ultrasound???

Jess says:

R is so going to get brain freeze he stole Zs popsicle lol

My 1st pregnancy was SOOO easy. I never got sick once. Not even nausea. I was just a little tired! I was so lucky!!

Jess says:

My houses should be going up for rent soon! The carpet cleaners are coming tomorrow then my sis is listing it how sad!

okay seriously, I am like sweating. I think we’ll go play in the baby pool.

Jess says:

It was my first house I moved from my parents to it! I was so proud LOL look at me now šŸ˜‰

I’m sure we’ve got to be at 150!!! I have been leaving a kajillion comments!! šŸ™‚

Jess says:

I need to take a shower

Oh and honestly, I wouldn’t trust kits like that. I think they are so silly. Of course they DO have a 50/50 chance!

why is your avican a J? What does that mean?

Jess says:

What should I put R in tomorrow a plain diap or his ooga booga diap?

joyntmadness says:

joyntmadness says:

Putting the kiddos to bed. It’s been a long day!

Jess says:

joyntmadness says:

It was a fun party, but I ate WAY too much pizza!

Slee says:

don’t know if i want to win one, because i’m afraid that if i do that i’ll end up preggo right off the bat again!

danielle says:

I hope its you or me jess……not some fly by night;)

joyntmadness says:

Listening to the hubs read the kids a story. SO CUTE!

Jess says:

I need a massage!

Slee says:

i think @4boys4now needs this more than anyone else, because she needs to have a girl, so she can be @4boysnagirl4now or @5kids4now

Slee says:

wow, 10 entires in the time it took me to type that!

joyntmadness says:

I love this time of night, when he takes over. He is so adorable with them.

Jess says:

I want some pizza!

joyntmadness says:

One of my favorite things is to wake up and see him asleep snuggled in with one of the kids. So sweet.

Jess says:

doing night time ritual!

danielle says:

jess- the smartipant looks so cheaply made! the stitching is all over the place….but I forget to change DD alot (bad mommy, I know) and she wore one for 7 hours! And I had no clue! I guess that os a testament to the dipe, right? and its my first purple dipe. much trimmer than the rumparooz, IMO

Jess says:

I hope Ls not hungry the boys ate all the food!

joyntmadness says:

Almost there. Have we hit 414 yet?

danielle says:

I dont know why I forget to change her, probably because she cried ALL day long, so A cry doesnt alert me to do anything special….not to mention shes on the tata all day if shes not crying! ugh

joyntmadness says:

The kids hate going to bed and I don’t like listening to them cry. Sad.

Slee says:

i need to be focusing on fluffy giveaways, darn it!

Jess says:

lol thanks slee I wish I could pick the sex of my baby lol

danielle says:

good thing she’s adorable! Big old blue eyes and a grin from ear to ear.
hope she stops crying soon!

Jess says:

Hey there! I featured your blog on my Follow Friday post this week. Stop by to check it out.

J says:

I was the same with my two! Everyone said we should wait but we just NEEDED to know it that ultrasound room! As for postitions, I’m not sure, but after we had our daughter, my mother-in-law used to tease that “if you had a girl it means you were having a lot of sex” Interestingly enough, I later read that this might be partially true (I wish I could remember where exactly for you…I think it was in a parenting mag though) Apparently, “female” sperm are slower, but live longer on average than their y counterparts. “Male” sperm are faster but last for a shorter time. Therefore, to optimize your chances of having a girl you might want to try having a lot of sex BEFORE (but not on the day of) ovulation, that way you have a bunch of sperm waiting at the fallopian tubes and the girls will most likely last longer. At least this is what I read. I’m pretty sure it matches up with when my kids were conceived too, so you never know! It might work!

Durn! I missed it! SHUCKS!

But I saw that you visited my blog! (THANKS!)
You asked about the bruises on my tummy… they are from twice daily heparin injections for blood clotting disorders. (MTHFR and protein S) This clotting this is likely why I miscarried twice before.

You said you are nervous about TTC.. but I don’t think you have anything to worry about! In my opinion the people that think they won’t have any problem, do. (me) and those that worry they might get knocked up right away! (barring any pre-existing conditions they already knew about)

Can’t wait to follow your journey!

Lani says:

That looks like a cool test! Glad I won’t need it though:)
