My Intelligender Results Are In!

There’s no fun in waiting… At least that’s how I see it. And while I’m pregnant I figure I might as well enjoy as much pregnancy stuff as I can cause you can’t go peeing in random chemicals for fun when you’re not pregnant now can you?

The mothers of Intelligender are so sweet to give me another opportunity to talk to you about their product! We tried it last year with my BFF, and it turned green for her = Boy! She also could tell at 13 WEEKS that it was a boy! My Godson was born about a month ago!
So now it’s my turn to try out Intelligender this fun gender prediction test.
You can take it as early as 10 weeks, so I figure taking it in my 15th week gives whatever is in my urine a chance to tell me if it’s a boy or girl. ALL of the tests I have taken so far have pretty much given me a boy result, so I was expecting this to turn green right away.
Watch below to see me take the test and reveal the results!
According to them their test is about 82% accurate so we’ll see… But honestly, I think it’s right! Haha. What do you think?
I’ll find out in about 4-5 weeks! I’ll let you know if they’re right or not when Spawnie gets here! Muahaha!
You can BUY intelligender for $35.95 or WIN one by:
1. Be(come) a follower of my blog!
2. Leave a comment! Be commenter #625 (Spawnie’s due date) and WIN!
Spread the word so you can get to that number quicker, tweet about it! Facebook about it, tell your friends! No rules except to have fun! Good luck!!
Disclosure: I was given a test for the purpose of conducting the review. Thank you Intelligender for sponsoring this giveaway!
PS: This is a part of my Full Term of Giveaways. If you’re interested in sponsoring a pregnancy or fertility related review and giveaway please use the “contact” link above or email babymakingmachine{at}gmail.com. Stay tuned for tons of fun!


oh the suspense, the video is set to private so I can’t see it.

My sister took that test and it said girl. I’m interested to see if it’s right! It’s a fun idea!

This looks like fun! I’d love to do this when we finally get pregnant, lol. I’m also a follower ๐Ÿ™‚

Cindy says:

So, can I leave unlimited comments to get you to 625?

That’s a really neat thing! Hey I have a question for you? have your nails always been that strong, or have the prenatal’s helped? And what’s your best suggestion for prenatal’s and where can I find them…the last ones I tried made me wicked sick! I can’t wait to see if Spawnie really is a boy!

Mel says:

That is so cool! I’d never heard about that….so a boy! How cool! We shall see.:)

*Alice Anne* says:

I am soooo excited for you! I’ve always envisioned having a boy first … because it’s awesome to have an older brother in the family. That’s the way I see it. Can’t wait for you to find out for sure!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Zandi says:

Meg says:

Elana Kahn says:

Oh boys are so much fun! I couldn’t take intelligender because I was having twins…blah.

My birthday is 6/24 and my mom’s is 6/25!! I’m already a follower of your blog!

Gena says:

I’m a follower and I’m so excited! LOL

Jessie says:

I’m so excited to see if it’s correct for you! I just scheduled my 20 week ultrasound today to find out what we’re having, so on Feb. 10th I’ll know which bedding to buy! This whole pregnancy thing is kinda fun hu? I’m just freaked out about the delivery, they never make it look like fun in movies.

Elana Kahn says:

So, how is everyone doing tonight?

Elana Kahn says:

By the way, my hubby’s birthday is the 23rd and my best friend’s is the 25th…so I hope you have him on one of those days!

Mrs. Cline says:

A Boy! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m excited for you!

Oh my gosh! That is crazy! I’ve never heard of it, but I would TOTALLY try it. If I was pregnant right now, I would be on that site now purchasing myself one of those tests. I’m so impatient and want to know the gender the day I find out I’m pregnant ๐Ÿ™‚

Meg says:

I’m a follower and have been watching your tweets as well!! come on comments I wanna win ๐Ÿ™‚

Elana Kahn says:

I wanted to know so badly, so I asked them to check at every ultrasound…even the one at 12 weeks! They said “we think baby B is a boy” at 14 weeks, but they couldn’t confirm that baby A was a girl until 18 weeks.

MsBabyPlan says:

I’m addicted to blogging, can somebody help me come out of it for few months? ๐Ÿ™‚
Jenny is all your fault :), I really like reading your posts and you manage to entertain so much. The intellitext is very neat indeed. Good luck for little spawnie boy.:))!

Elana Kahn says:

Hey Future Mama, how can I create a review blog? I would love to try out things and give reviews and have giveaways…

I would LOVE to try this out for fun…just not $40 worth of fun! Good luck to #625!

Tori says:

I’m not pregnant, but I wanted to tell you that your video was as cute as a video with pee in it can be lol ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been reading your blog for almost a year now, and I always had this theory of how your voice sounded from your pictures, and it’s even prettier than I imagined. Anyway, boys are the BEST! It’s what my Junebug was last year ๐Ÿ™‚ I found out at 14 weeks that I was having a boy, so I never did this kind of thing. But the Chinese calendar was right for me! Anyway, good luck to whomever wins! And good luck to Future Mama too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Emmy says:

I follow your blog and would love to win! I am about 13 weeks now so it would be fun to see if it is right.

Wow this is pretty funky!

I follow!

P.S. I would really love to be able to leave my comment with my name/URL instead of Google or OpenID but your comment form doesn’t allow it. ๐Ÿ™

Emily says:

So are you and hubby not telling ANYONE the gender of your baby or are you just not telling us Internetz?

Elana Kahn says:

Still watching Days…my sister called and I talked to her for a bit.

Elana Kahn says:

I was curious about that myself…

ฮฉโˆ‚โˆ‚ยฉโˆšยฅโ€ ฦ’โ€ โˆ‚ยดโˆ‘รŸยดโˆšโˆซหšยจ- thats my fancy talk LOL!

Nancy says:

I’m sure you’ve heard this 100 times. I used this test at 12 weeks and got the same result as you. As you know, I have a beautiful baby GIRL.

Here is what I have learned from this test from my research and talking to other people who have taken it. Most results that say Girl are correct. False positives occur when the test has “boy” results. This is because of the amount of testosterone you might have in your body, which is why it says to not have sex the day before you you take the test. The more testosterone the darker the color.

Most people who get the false results are boy results and people end up having girls.

I still think your having a girl.

The place that I got this test from (the local independent 3D ultra sound place) stopped selling these because so many of their customers were getting incorrect results.

I would suggest to anyone to save their money and wait a month or so for the u/s. But hey, if it’s a freebie, your not going to lose anything.

Elana Kahn says:

Gotta take a break and bathe the twins…be back later!

Elana Kahn says:

LOL @ Zandi ๐Ÿ™‚

Elana Kahn says:

Since I have PCOS, the test would probably come up boy regardless, but it would be fun to take it anyway! (That is when I get pregnant again…)

Good morning all!

Brandi says:

It’s snowing.

Brandi says:

Today is the National Championship game.. Roll Tide Roll.

Elana Kahn says:

So, is today the day we get to 625??

Brie H says:

Could be if we all stay and comment it up!

Brie H says:

I skinned my knee yesterday.

Brie H says:

Doing burpees during crossfit.

Brie H says:

It hurts like crazy!

Brie H says:

I was doctoring it up with some tweezers that I dipped in alcohol.

Brie H says:

The alcohol wasn’t quite dry and it burned.

Brie H says:

So today was my son’s 12 month checkup.

Brie H says:

He weighs 24 lbs and 1 oz

Brie H says:

He is 30.5 inches

Brie H says:

He had to have 6 shots.

Brie H says:

He was a trooper!

Brie H says:

He also got a ton of presents for his birthday.

Brie H says:

Most of them were from my in-laws

Brie H says:

I am at work and I have to activate 20 cell phones right now.

Brie H says:

So every time I am waiting for one to power on I make a comment.

Brie H says:

And then I can make two while they are activating.

Brie H says:

It’s funny too, because these phones were shipped out of Philidelphia.

Brie H says:

And I am in Dallas – the person that boxed these phones must also be from Dallas.

Brie H says:

Because in the middle of all the phones was this piece of cardboard.

Brie H says:

That said How bout Dem Cowboys! Dallas Fan in Philly holding it down!

Brie H says:

And yes Dallas won against Philly!

Brie H says:

Of course this box has been sitting here unopened since before the game, but I just found it since I just opened it.

Brie H says:

Anyway I thought that was funny and it made my day.

Brie H says:

Woo hoo Cowboys!

Brie H says:

I really hope that they win this playoff game on Saturday.

Brie H says:

Mostly so my husband will be happy.

sunnymum says:

This looks interesting! I would have liked to have this when my little guy didn’t want to “face the camera” in my only ultrasound.

Elana Kahn says:

I want to think of a good way to get us to 400…

Elana Kahn says:

My son wants to be held…always.

Elana Kahn says:

I need to go grocery shopping.

Elana Kahn says:

I can’t find a receipt I need to return something.

Elana Kahn says:

I’m going to bake bread either today or tomorrow.

Elana Kahn says:

My little sweeties are growing up so fast!

Elana Kahn says:

I think I’m also going to make mandel bread

Elana Kahn says:

I’m wondering if I can substitute the sugar in the recipe for splenda.

Elana Kahn says:

I’m also wondering if I can substitute the oil for apple puree…

Elana Kahn says:

And the eggs for egg beaters… lol

Elana Kahn says:

I want to make healthy mandel bread…with chocolate chips! ๐Ÿ™‚

Elana Kahn says:

The twins are eating yogurt. Mmmm

Elana Kahn says:

Ahhh the joys of new health insurance…

Elana Kahn says:

Chana’s spoon went flying!

Elana Kahn says:

Now on the phone with the doc’s office.

Elana Kahn says:

Don’t you love being on hold?

Elana Kahn says:

I know I sure do…not!

Elana Kahn says:

As soon as the twins finish eating, we need to go grocery shopping.

Elana Kahn says:

Thank G-d for my new au pair…she is an angel.

Elana Kahn says:

And she’s Israeli, so she speaks Hebrew. ๐Ÿ™‚

Elana Kahn says:

Being transferred…I’ll probably get a voicemail. ๐Ÿ™

Elana Kahn says:

Yep…voicemail. boooo

Elana Kahn says:

Man I really hope he calls me back today.

Elana Kahn says:

Left a message…urgh. If I don’t get that prescription called in today I’m going to freak out.

Elana Kahn says:

Chana spilled her water all over the floor. Oops!

Elana Kahn says:

Only 225 more posts to go…can we do it today? Or will it be tomorrow?

Elana Kahn says:

And look, we’re on a new page, too!

Elana Kahn says:

So how are you feeling, Future Mama??

Elana Kahn says:

Baby kicks? Baby hiccups?

Elana Kahn says:

Ahhh, miss being pregnant…

Elana Kahn says:

But next time, I’ll just be pregnant with one.

Elana Kahn says:

That will be SOOOO easy!

Elana Kahn says:

Heheh Dovid looks like he’s falling asleep in his yogurt.

Elana Kahn says:

I asked my hubby last night when he wants to start trying for #3.

Elana Kahn says:

He said “well we’re not preventing…so whenever it happens”

Elana Kahn says:

Then I clarified…I meant when would he want to start fertility treatments, if ever.

Elana Kahn says:

Then he said he’d have to think about it.

Elana Kahn says:

Then I laughed and said that his job was the easy one…and it didn’t matter whether it was IVF, IUI or Clomid to him!

Elana Kahn says:

And he said that he knows how hard it is for me, which is why he wants to think about it.

Elana Kahn says:

What a sweetie, isn’t he?

Elana Kahn says:

I don’t even know myself, to be honest.

Elana Kahn says:

Although I reminded him that pregnancy does take 9 months…

Elana Kahn says:

So whenever I get pregnant, the twins will be 9 months older when I deliver.

Elana Kahn says:

In some ways it’ll be easier and in some more difficult.

Elana Kahn says:

I think it’s called the “terrible twos” for a reason…

Elana Kahn says:

And if I were to get pregnant now, for instance, they’d be about 1 1/2 when the baby would be born.

Elana Kahn says:

Just in time for the “terrible twos” to take place…times two!

Elana Kahn says:

Maybe we should wait until they’re two to start any treatments…

Elana Kahn says:

Try on our own for a year, and if it doesn’t happen then jump right in.

Elana Kahn says:

That way, the twins will be almost three before any baby would be born…

Elana Kahn says:

And they’ll be able to walk and talk and stuff…

Elana Kahn says:

And hopefully not be too terrible. ๐Ÿ™‚

Elana Kahn says:

Or is that two terrible?? hehe

Elana Kahn says:

Now they’re having bottles to top off…

Elana Kahn says:

Ahhh growing babies…so delicious

Elana Kahn says:

I’m going to make salmon for tomorrow’s dinner.

Elana Kahn says:

I hope that Market Basket sells kosher salmon…

Elana Kahn says:

If not, I may need to make a special trip to Costco to buy some.

Elana Kahn says:

I don’t think I have any in the fridge…

Elana Kahn says:

I meant the freezer…but maybe I should check just in case.

Elana Kahn says:

Ohh my mom’s calling me…I wonder what she wants.

Elana Kahn says:

Ahhh she’s in Florida. Ohhh how exciting, she’s at her best friend’s house visiting!

Elana Kahn says:

Gee it’s getting dark, I’d better turn on the electric light.

Elana Kahn says:

Dovid has yogurt on his ears. So silly!

Elana Kahn says:

It’s so nice outside today…not snowing!

Elana Kahn says:

It wasn’t even snowing when my mom left on her airplane to go to FL.

Elana Kahn says:

Apparently Rochester gets rush hour traffic at 6 in the morning.

Elana Kahn says:

My mom just figured it out…lol She never gets up that early ever!

Elana Kahn says:

Yay Future Mama thinks I’m funny!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Elana Kahn says:

I think I’m funny too…and so does my hubby.

Elana Kahn says:

I love Monty Python…they’re VERY funny.

Elana Kahn says:

I also love Harry Potter.

Elana Kahn says:

And Lord of the Rings, too. Frodo is hot and Samwise is too.

Elana Kahn says:

The guy that played Sam in the movie looks just like one of my exes.

Elana Kahn says:

Very, very cute. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hey look, I got to 450!

Elana Kahn says:

Elana Kahn says:

Still not quite at 500, though…

Elana Kahn says:

What do you need from the grocery store?

Elana Kahn says:

Can I get you anything?

Elana Kahn says:

Do you need toilet paper or paper towels?

Elana Kahn says:

Oh, I need to get batteries and gloves, but those will come from CVS.

Elana Kahn says:

Ziva is now changing the twins so we can go shopping!

Elana Kahn says:

I don’t need any more garlic, because I have two heads already.

Elana Kahn says:

Haha…I have two heads…that’s funny!

Elana Kahn says:

I also don’t need any more carrots…have lots in the fridge.

Elana Kahn says:

My hubby put “dessert” on the list, but I’m going to make my own…yum!

Meg says:
