PREGNANCY & PRENATAL SCREENING TEST
Finding out the sex of you baby is as easy as ever. It was an almost painless (as long as you’re not scared of needles) few minutes of blood draws and that was pretty much it! I had the test done as early as I could, at nine weeks pregnant (with my first). It took around ten days for my physician to get the results, which they were able to communicate to me over the phone. The nurse told me the screenings all looked good and before she was able to get the sex of the baby out I asked if I could pick up the results in an envelope. We changed our mind and ended up deciding to wait the entire pregnancy to find out.
ABOUT THE TEST
Panorama is a noninvasive prenatal screening test (NIPT) that reveals your baby’s risk for genetic disorders as early as nine weeks. Panorama analyzes baby’s (placental) DNA through a simple blood draw from your arm. It tests for trisomy which is a genetic condition caused by extra copies of a chromosome. These include Down syndrome, Edwards syndrome, and Patau syndrome. This test also screens for sex chromosome abnormalities, Microdeletions, Triploidy, and reports the babies gender. Panorama has the highest published accuracy in determining the baby’s gender.
