The news is in – and after an interesting gender reveal turn of events, we found out baby number three is a GIRL. She will be our third January baby girl, can you believe it? Okay first, why this news was SO shocking and our fun surprise twist.
Did you know you can find out the gender of your baby as early as 9 weeks? Yup, it’s true. Sneak Peek sent me this at-home blood test kit that you can take as early as 9 weeks; it detects chromosomes in your blood, so as a woman, if you have Y chromosomes in your blood, you’re having a boy. Pretty cool, and I never heard of this before – it was so simple because they mail the kit to you, provide detailed instructions (that you should REALLY follow), you send your sample back in, and get the results emailed to you – or someone else, if you want to be surprised.
As you may know, I have terrible sickness in my pregnancies – this one seems to be the worst one so far – so I was really looking forward to learning the gender early to have something fun and exciting to hold on to.
