Question about 10 wk DS blood test

I'm talking about the one that also tells the gender of the baby.  I'm having it done on Tuesday and I was wondering if anyone knows How long does it take to get the results?

Is it the Harmony testing? That tells the gender by the chromosones?

It took 11 days counting weekends to get my results :-)

I had a cvs test done at about the same time. They stick a needle into the placenta instead of the uterus and take villi instead of amniocentesis where they take antibiotic fluid. It can be done earlier, it's still a little dangerous and not all doctors will do it or offer it because they don't know how, but I had results in about 3 days that were 100% accurate. Our baby boy bay all the odds and had no abnormalities in the genetics no margin of error either. We're know. I am so much less stressed knowing. Hope that helps!

Yeah the waiting killed me but it was better than waiting till my 20 wk scan to find out! Lol

No way I'm having a needle stuck in my belly, if that were the only way I would wait til it was born to find out :)
