I LOVE Technology!!!! When it comes to birth and pregnancy, technology is advancing faster than ever. No more do you have to wait for your 20 week ultrasound to confirm the sex of your baby. You can find out the sex of the baby with a urine test at 10 weeks in the comfort of your home! Based on independent research, GenderSense® has an accuracy between 80-92%* If you feel like knowing your baby's sex is important and going to cause too much emotional stress if the prediction is wrong, then this test may not be for you.
I've teamed up with GenderSense to offer one of my readers a free Gender Prediction self test kit. A value of $49.87!!! Go to my Instagram Account: @JenRaePoe for details on how to win! Entry Deadline is Monday July 2nd 2018 at 11:59pm EST. Winner will be announced Tuesday July 3rd 2018.
Gender reveal parties are getting super popular, which is understandable, because it can be exciting and fun for everyone! Combining the Shettles Method with the GenderSense® urine test can get to your gender reveal faster. This is by no means replacing the need to have an ultrasound as the ultrasound indicates specific growth markers and soft markers for genetic diseases.
How does GenderSense® work? 20 ml of the expectant mothers' first morning urine is drawn using the syringe provided. After removing the top sticker on the test container, the urine is slowly inserted into the vessel through a silicone spout. The urine is introduced into the GenderSense® formulation, creating an 'exothermic reaction'. This resulting reaction and the associated hormones detected in the urine cause the formulation to change to either an amber yellow color for a GIRL result or a hunter/smoky green color indicating a BOY result.

My Gender & Pregnancy Reveal
My husband Kyle and I announced our gender and pregnancy on social media while we were on our trip to New Zealand. I was 16 weeks pregnant and wanted to celebrate in a very unique way. We went to on a helicopter hiking tour to Fox Glacier and announced to our family and friends in front of the Victoria Falls. Then I posted the Gender Reveal with a custom onesie with her due date, a cute neutral bow headband, a lion (representing her Astrological sign Leo), some cute baby boots, and her sonogram picture.
