How To Tell If Your Having A Boy Or Girl
When you start wondering how to tell if you are having a boy or a girl, life is rapidly changing all around you. Can you not feel the changes in the atmosphere as your woman’s belly grows? Soon your guns, liquor and motorcycles will be confiscated, but buck up, cupcake. You have some exciting times ahead. In fact, you will learn that college was not even close to the best days of your life.
To tell if you are having a boy or a girl, you will need:
- A doctor
- Fun and useless. Without the aid of a doctor, there is no sure fire way to tell if you are having a boy or a girl. But on the other hand, you always have a 50 percent chance of being right. What position the baby bump is, what she wants to eat or how sick she is in the morning will tell you absolutely nothing. The foulest method is getting her to pee in Drano and divining the sex by the color of the urine. Who thinks up this nonsense? Everyone knows there is a magic button hidden on her body that she pushes to determine the sex.
- Rare. Unfortunately, with pregnancies there can be complications. Mothers over 35 and people with a family history of genetic disorders are often subjected to extra tests. There are two tests used to discern chromosomal disorders. One of these tests is called amniocentesis and it is carried out after the sixteenth week of pregnancy. A sample of amniotic fluid is collected and tested. This is a 100 percent accurate way of determining sex but due to the risks and invasive nature of the test, it is never used as the sole means to discern the sex of your child.
- Rarer. Another test that can also be used to tell if you are having a boy or a girl is known as CVS or chorionic villus sampling. While this is another extremely accurate way of determining the sex of your child, it is only used for at-risk pregnancies where results are needed immediately. The CVS test can be taken in the fifteenth week of pregnancy and the results are available as quickly as 48 hours.
- Probably. The most common method to tell if you are having a boy or a girl is through ultrasound. The test in not intrusive and it does it hurt. While not 100 percent accurate, the ultrasound runs at about 80 to 90 percent accurate. The unknown factors are the kid and if the kid has crossed legs or is balled up in an awkward position. Your practitioner will only call the shot if he can see the plumbing. If they can see the plumbing, you will know and get a cool, blurry picture to take home.
- There are many reasons why people do not bother to learn the sex of their child. But a fun reason to know is so you can name the kid. One of the coolest tricks you will ever pull off in this lifetime is teaching your child their name while they are still in the womb. When they are born, call the name and they will respond because they already know you.
