Did you take an Intelligender test? *update with 1st test pic*

If so, how far along were you when you did?

I bought one when my due date was based on my LMP rather then O date but a recent u/s says I'm only 9 weeks. It's been sitting in my bathroom staring at me every morning but I keep telling myself to just wait another week and I'll be able to take it.

Anyone take it before the reccomended 10 weeks?

I'm waiting on their site to email me back because I can't tell what it says

It's a urine test at home that tells you what gender your baby may be. It's supposed to be 80% correct per their website, but some mama's have found it only to be about 50/50. It's more of a just for fun test IMO.

I took it at 12 weeks both times, which was what the directions said to do 2 years ago. You get more accurate results then. It was right for me both times.

Re: Did you take an Intelligender test?

I took 2 of them (I bought one early like you and it killed me, but I waited out till I was 12 weeks 1 day with my first one, and 13 weeks 2 days with my 2nd one, both said girl & according to a recent u/s both were right) I have pictures and details in my blog (link in my siggy).

I recommend waiting, I know it's hard, but to test earlier than 10 weeks would probably just waste it and wouldn't be as likely to give you an accurate result.

ETA:
I also had a post & poll here for my test, where a few others posted about theirs as well and even shared some of their pics if your interested.

Or you could do like me and do one for experiment and one for following up later?

I knew the progesterone could have affected my first test and it did slightly but I followed it up with another and the whole time it was mainly for fun and experiment. So if you can't wait you can always be a preggo bathroom scientist

Re: Did you take an Intelligender test?

oh yeah Ive been thinking about taking the test since 5 weeks preggo.. and I have resisted buying it because of the same issue you are having, the wanting to take it early so bad, lol.
