A cutting edge new test gives parents the option to find out if they're having a boy or a girl early in pregnancy.
Expecting moms used to have to wait until they were 18 to 20 weeks to find out the sex of their baby but with the new, noninvasive test called “Maternal T21", doctors can figure out the baby's gender around 10 weeks.
Doctors say they can detect DNA from the fetus in the mother's blood and the test is said to be 99-percent accurate. It can also detect chromosome issues early on.
