Are u over 35? Then yes

Blood test around 9 weeks

There are blood tests that can tell you. Older moms (over 35) get them in the first trimester (for health reasons not specifically to find out the gender...that just happens to be an added benefit)

You can do one of those blood tests starting at like 8 weeks I think

Yes there is a blood test you can get early, I did it at 10 weeks. Ask your doctor

SneakPeek blood test

Blood test (NIPT) is actually often recommended for age 35+ moms as it also tests for chromosomal abnormalities. You can ask your OB to do one regardless of age, but may have to pay out of pocket if you don’t count as a high risk group. (my OB said ~$200 but insurance ended up covering it anyway).

Kind of an aside from OP’s question, but I don’t understand why anyone of reasonable means would skip the NIPT. $249 to know a vast quantity of health information about your unborn child is an incredible value regardless of what you choose to do with that info. Same thing as carrier screening; for $349 my husband and I are able to provide our children with a list of 274 (273 in our case as I’m a carrier of a rare genetic disorder) chromosomal issues that they will never ever be affected by. I think that’s the coolest thing in the world.

Hello all, how can we approach the gender pay gap at our respective employers? I know I’ve mentioned it before but it seems to make Culture & Talent, as well as Legal cringe. I don’t expect them to publish salaries, nor do I wish this, I just want to see what steps we can take to make our voices heard. Let’s open the floor up for ideas and suggestions!!

I’d like to know if I’m being stupid for being underpaid. I’m currently being paid 80k as an A2 in TAS (HCOL), however I’ve been an “acting senior” for the past 6 months.

If I left, I’d join as a senior and make 20k more, but I may give up flexibility, and the commute would be longer. I’m a single father with young kids, so flexibility is important to me. Career goals = partner. Any opinions?
