That's fine. I'm not saying you can't suggest it as an option. But when you do, I am equally able to express what I think about someone doing an amnio JUST for reasons of gender testing. That's all. It actually shouldn't be a choice for gender testing IMO. If you happen to find out gender because you are high risk for birth defects and decided to do the test, then that's different.

Why would ANYONE have an amnio, an invasive procedure, just to find out the sex of their baby?

You can't know......even if you get an ultrasound done, it is not 100% accurate. Best way to find out is give birth.

I understand and respect that Jodi. But some people do make that choice just because, not saying that is what she is going to do. I only meant that an amnio is the only thing that would be 100% accurate.

"That is a personal choice for her to make base on her situation if it arrises"



Hence the reason for my comment.



Angela, scans aren't 100% accurate.

In the UK they now tell you the sex of your baby at the 20 week scan. My oldest son was told his baby was a girl - she was! My 2nd oldest son was also told his baby was a girl. We find out for sure in about one month.



When I was having babies (back in the 1980's) we had scans but they just didn't tell you.

Most that find out through amnio have to have the amnio done for genetic screening or for establishing paternity anyway so they run that at the same time

Ultrasounds 'can' be fairly reliable, but like Jodi said... not 100%. Giving birth is the best indicator. ;)
