Yes. It's fairly new in the USA. I dint know what it's called honestly. But it's done to tell you baby's genetic markers such as blood type and gender. Usually only used for rh neg moms. There is a small (I believe 2%) margin of error. I would ask your ob. Why so anxious?
Its actually used on any high risk mom to check for down syndrome, I had it done at 10 weeks and my insurance paid for it becuz I am high risk due to being 39 yrs old. The main reason it is used to check for down syndrome. That's the only thing it checked for actually besides gender. You can have it done if aren't high risk
I'm just anxious to find out the sex of the baby. I kno I should b patient, but it seems like forever!!!!
Sorry that posted too soon, was u can have it done even if u aren't high risk but u hafta pay for it.
I'm glad someone answered that more fully for me! I'm an idiot for not realizing the timing of the test coincided with the down syndrome screen!
I'm willing to pay :) and thank you
You r not an idiot doulamommy, the test is so new I'm only the 2nd person my dr has used it on.
