Genetic test

Hi all , I am pregnant 8 weeks and my doctor gave me a blood test for genetic problem after a month. Who have experienced the same test and how long does it takes to get the results . She said that all pregnant who are above 35 should make it so

After the age of 35 more testing is required, this is completely normal. The test results can take from 5-10 days depending on how busy the lab is. Don't worry this is all routine.

Does it shows the baby's gender ??

I chose to have the Panorama genetic test done at 12 weeks and we had results within 7-10 days. We did choose to find out the gender. It's a girl and the gender was confirmed at the 20 week ultrasound.

Yes my wife and I had it done also. And it also provided the sex of the baby. Congrats to you all. We are going to be first time parents.

It depends on the test, the screening for genetic testing that tests if you are a carrier for over 120 things does not show gender, however if you are having the screening for downs etc then yes it will also show gender. I had both :)

Nice information, but why did you have both . Was it just to check or you had a problem ???

No problems at all, just what my doctor recommended. The pre-screen is actually often used before people even get pregnant however we did mine after I already was. My hubby also got that one so we could see if we were the carriers for anything off the charts. The other is the one I wanted the most that tested for the Downs Syndrome, that was also done at 10 weeks and took about 7 days to get back. That is also when we found out we were having a girl :)
