So glad you've got your pink bun in the oven Jax!! I know you've read posts about people finding out the test was wrong, but I really feel that these people must have gotten their wires crossed when the doctor gave them the results or something... It is a genetic test. There is either only X sex chromosomes (girl) or there is Y present (boy) there isn't any variation in this unless there is a genetic sex abnormality (that the Generation test also tests for) The tests say that nothing can be 100% accurate to cover their butts incase something goes wrong, or if samples get contaminated (super rare occurrences). I'm not just saying this as a general mother with an opinion (although that is valid too) Before I changed careers to nursing I was a genetic sequencer for 8 years. I think you can be certain of your girl :)

I was going through my girls wardrobe getting out all the dresses that were too small for them both, as it was overflowing... I thought I was ok with whatever sex of this baby until that! I'm not ready to never see my children in all these adorable dresses again!!!! Ahhhhh! LOL. For reals! My husband laughed when I told him, he's like you and your girls!
But really, I can't be selfish and have ALL THE GIRLS ... I've got 2 and I will be happy either way this time as long as it is healthy, I will just need to get used to the idea if this baby turns out to be a boy.

Awwww thanks Mousey, that's really reassuring. Hahaha I think if my two boys had been girls, I'd still be yearning pink. I'm one of three girls so pre-kids that's all I knew. I know you'll adore whichever you get, but I can certainly understand those pangs when you were packing up your girls' clothes...the clothing section for little girls is so much bigger and better than for little boys!
