Here at Cheyenne OBGYN, we are constantly learning new ways to better serve mothers. Our newest service, SneakPeek®, does exactly that. It is a blood-sample-based test that delivers your baby’s gender results at just 8 weeks – half the amount of wait time it takes for conclusive ultrasound gender results. This helps provide peace of mind early on in your pregnancy, so you and your loved ones know exactly what is to come.
How it Works
A small blood test is taken from the arm and sent to the SneakPeek® labs. Once the sample is sent to the lab, the test looks for male chromosomes in the fetal DNA found in mom’s blood. If there is no fetal DNA in mom’s blood, the test will return a girl result, because mom is a girl. On the off chance that the test is contaminated with outside male DNA (even pets!), it may return a boy result. It is recommended to confirm pregnancy with our doctors prior to taking SneakPeek®.
The SneakPeek® Early Gender DNA Test is a non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT), and it’s safe for both mom and baby. As a test that only takes a small blood sample from mom’s arm, it is very safe and does not affect baby at all. Additionally, it is not affected by other hormone prescriptions, diagnoses, blood thinners, menstruation, or current breastfeeding so you can receive 99.9% accurate results regardless of current circumstances.
