Baby Gender Mentor: An Update

7/11/2006 – UPDATE: More information on this can be found here and here.While we are pleased with the results we received from the Baby Gender Mentor test we took back in July ’05, countless others have not been so happy/lucky. If you are contemplating using the Baby Gender Mentor test, please check out the forums at you were to ask me whether or not we’d use the test again, I would most assuredly tell you no, simply because my confidence in the test and the company behind it is gone. Make up your own mind, though.The Baby Gender Mentor kit Kim and I ordered from last week finally arrived yesterday. I was a little disappointed that it took so long for it to arrive, but I chalked that up to just being really anxious to know the sex of our baby.Kim’s sister helped her with the test, since I could not be present to help get blood samples from Kim. (If I had been present, my DNA could have inadvertently “contaminated” the blood… causing the Y chromosome to be present when the lab ran it’s tests on her samples.) The kit comes with two lancets for pricking your fingers. These were not sufficient for Kim. She’s not much of a bleeder. After an hour and a half of coaxing the blood out of her fingers, they finished up.We dropped the test off at our local FedExKinkos last night. It should arrive at the lab in Massachusetts by Thursday morning. If all goes well, we should know the results Friday night, or at the latest…by next Monday… (I’m hoping for Friday!)I’m anxiously awaiting the results now… I’ll post the results as soon as I have em (but not before I tell Kim)!
