Question

IF A 20 YEAR OLD PATIENT WHO IS 12 WEEKS OF GESTATION ASK FOR AN AMNIOCENTESES TO DETERMINE THE SEX OF THE BABY.

WHAT SHOULD THE NURSE RESPOND WITH?


WE CAN SCHEDULE THE PROCEDURE LATER TODAY IF YOU WANT

THE PROVIDER WILL SCHEDULE A CHORIONIC VILLUS SAMPLING TO DETERMINE GENDER

THE BABY CANNOT HAVE AN AMNIOCENTESIS UNTIL 35 WEEKS GESTATION

THE PROCEDURE DETERMINES IF YOUR BABY HAS A GENETIC OR CONGENITAL DISORDER


ACCORDING TO ATI AMNIOCENTESES CANNOT BE PERFORMED UNTIL AFTER 14 WEEKS GESTATION, SO THE ANSWER CANNOT BE WE CAN SCHEDULE THE PROCEDURE LATER IF YOU WANT BECAUSE SHE IS ONLY 12 WEEKS.


AND 35 WEEKS GESTATION DOES NOT MAKE SENSE AS WELL SINCE IT COULD BE PERFORMED AFTER 14 WEEKS.


SO WOULD THE ANSWER BE THE DOCTOR WILL ORDER A CHORIONIC VILLUS SAMPLING SINCE IT CAN BE PERFORMED BETWEEN 10-12 WEEKS GESTATION AND IT IS ABLE TO TELL THE GENDER OF THE BABY? THIS IS THE ONLY ASNWER THAT MAKES SENSE TO ME


OR WILL THE ANSWER BE THE PROCEDURE DETERMINES IF YOUR BABY HAS A GENETIC OR CONGENITAL DISORDER BUT THAT ANSWER DOES NOT ADDRESS THE PATIENT CONCERN OF KNOWING GENDER. CAN ANYONE HELP ME CLARIFY THIS
