The best part of this test, is that it can tell you the gender of your baby. If anyone is impatient, that is their problem, not yours. Want to know how they figure it all out? Most of the time one should be able to tell the sex of the baby by about 20 weeks and very often even at sixteen. We are not finding out what we are having even though people in our lives say it would be better if we knew but I really want a surprise!!! I am too anxious as a first time mom so I do want to find out this time but I think if I have another baby I will wait and be surprised. Debbie, mum of three, who blogs at http: The basic way this works is that it involves and X and Y chromosome. For me the 20 week scan was all about seeing the heart beat and knowing I was still pregnant. But no one knew I was going to ask until the day.
