Boy or Girl based on Fragile X test results

had blood work at 12 weeks and saw results online. It was for the Fragile X test. The results say this: This patient has two FMR1 alleles in the normal size range, both with 31 CGG repeats. Analysis of X and Y chromosome specific sequences was consistent with a sample from a female individual

Where it says: this patient has TWO FMR1 alleles - is that me or the baby they are referring to, bc that would mean - GIRLl, but after says Analysis of X and Y chromosome which would be BOY

we are finding out at our next sono but since that's so far away we wanted to see if this was telling us something, any ideas???

It says Analysis of X and Y chromosome, it doesnt say that it has both, so it could mean girl or boy.. it doesnt state what the found but they tell you GIRL.

FMR1 gene is located on the X chromosome and since it is saying both are within the normal ranges,Iits suggesting that the test done was on a female cell. Generally that would mean the baby but like you said there is also a mention of Xand Y analysis. If that talks only about one normal fmr1 gene being observed, then you are carrying a male child.  If no other mention is made then yes, this is your baby girl. :)

I know this is an old post, but what was the result? My test says the same thing and I would like to know whether I'm having a boy or girl.
