After a stupid week of dealing with insurance, I FINALLY got the Maternity21 test approved and had the blood draw today. It's supposed to take 7 -- 10 business days, but with Thanksgiving this week, it's like this week won't even count. I won't get my results until mid-December.

In a funny twist, I could have gone NEXT FRIDAY to go get a gender scan at a private u/s place and found out the gender sooner than I will with the test. Oh, just too funny.......

Yay! What a pain you had to go through to get everything approved! Too bad you have to wait so long for the results. Are you going to go to the private ultrasound place or just wait it out for the test to come back?

Wow!!! What a headache!!! Glad you finally got the approval, but boo for the turnaround time being delayed because of the holidays. I also think you should go for an elective U/S!

I actually think they work weekends. I heard most results are given on Mondays.

If you had blood drawn today then they will get it tomorrow, Wed will be day 2. I bet they work Friday. I bet if you called back next Friday they might even have it done. And totally by that Monday.

But you're right (you're a week ahead of me) you could get a scan the same time.

With the M21 though you have total peace of mind that the baby is ok...and your NT scan was awesome so you are probably just sitting on gender now!

And the further along you are, the easier it is to tell gender.

I don't think I'm going to get the gender scan -- it's $60. I can wait until the results come in. Besides, we did the 3D scan with Betsy at 27ish weeks and I'd rather wait until then so we can get a good look at his/her face. With Betsy's 3D scan, we could totally see her chubby little cheeks! Her little nose was the same too.

Angela, I hope you're right about the lab actually working this week. I've had bad experiences with this medical group and holidays, so my expectations are super low. The lab tech was awesome though and said I could call her as often as I wanted to -- she could even call the lab company and inquire for me. I forget that while my last working day is tomorrow, everyone else works Wednesday and many work Friday as well.

I was going to say, 7 business days would be next Friday, if they don't work the day after Thanksgiving. I would bet that you have the results by Monday the 9th, for sure! I'm sorry it took so long, but I'm so excited for the results to be back

At the least though the genetic test is more accurate than an ultrasound scan...if baby doesn't co-operate then you could end up paying for the scan and still not know the gender!

Boo to the delays and whatnot, but yay for the results when they come! Keep us posted

AT LEAST it was finally approved, but Im with you, if they have really slacked off that much, my expectations wouldntbe too high... but hopefully they will have the results sooner than later! Im sorry the medical group isnt so good... its a pain to deal with bad drs...

Yep, my expectations right now are ridiculously low. Better to expect them to take forever and a day than to be disappointed!
