If the hospital has some DNA left you could get it DNA tested, I think it's called Cyrotyping(not 100% sure if that's the right term), where they look at the chromosomes.

I would not want to know b/c after my second m/s they did the DNA testing. It was that much harder to get over once I knew what I was to have. Every time I heard the name I was going to name it I turn around and tears well up in my eyes.

So sad! That sounds hard. There are so many things we are able to know about our pregnancies now, but sometimes I don't want to know them all.
