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 🙂 But I’ll be publishing a bunch of comments every now and then! So comment away!! …a bunch!
Be nice and have fun!!
