If you are pregnant and eager to find out if your baby is male, female or Boy George, you may be able to tell as early as 10 weeks after conception, according to makers of an over-the-counter gender prediction test.
IntelliGender, creator of the “Boy or Girl Gender Prediction Test,” says scientists isolated certain hormones that when combined with a “proprietary mix of chemicals” react differently if a woman is carrying a boy or a girl.
It claims that within 10 minutes of taking the urine test, a woman will be able to tell her baby’s gender. The specimen will turn orange if it’s a girl. If it’s a boy, the toilet seat will automatically stay up.
IntelliGender would not say what hormones or chemicals it uses it in its test, which boasts a 78 to 80 percent accuracy rate, because of a pending patent.
Of course, you can also undergo another kind of test with 100 percent accuracy: If your left breast is bigger than the right during pregnancy, you’re having a girl. If the right is bigger, it’ll be a boy. If you can’t tell which is bigger, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has offered to feel you up and predict the gender for free!
