For a brief moment I had a weak moment for Sherry Bonelli- I guess I forgot that she suggested my baby was a genetic freak. She has done it again...really she is amazing.....
She has contacted an internet site for advise on her situation- an internet site that everyone in the world can see.........what is she thinking?
We feel that there are also ulterior motives behind all these rumors. Many of Acu-Gen's competitors are threatened by their scientific breakthrough. Many of these labs have been trying for decades to do what Acu-Gen has done -- and we think some of these labs and companies are actually making some of these negative postings and spreading these rumors. The allegations being made on these message boards can neither be substantiated nor stand the test of time.
I am a REAL person with REAl feelings and a REAL baby in my tummy. I am not on this site to start rumors. Crazy, I know, but I did not think it would be fun to pay $275 to feel lost, confused, stressed, heartbroken and worried over my baby for months and months.
Science Magazine recently printed an article about fetal DNA found in maternal blood and about the Baby Gender Mentor:
And I say: PLEASE I urge you to read this article on their web site- it is not even favorable to their test and I can't imagine why they would include it on the site in the first place.
She includes a few favorable quotes like these:
"Hi, Sherry, FYI -- I used the Baby Gender Mentor Test at 51 days and the results were girl and this was confirmed 2 days ago by CVS. I'm thrilled!" -- Kim. S, mom of 3 beautiful sons (who are also very excited about their baby sister!)
"It was so comforting to have a more reliable method of gender knowledge other than just ultrasounds. I was able to buy pink everything with the confidence I was having a girl." -- Michelle M. (Note: Baby Gender Mentor Test stated girl -- Michelle is now the proud mother of a baby girl!)
And I say: Of course these women are happy - their BGM test and their ultrasounds matched. They never had to endure what I have had to endure. The point is: your lab results may not match your ultrasound and then you arte stuck in limbo- worried and wondering- why take that chance? If my results had been a match I would be raving about the test as well.
The Marketing man who responds to her says:
My thinking here is to be conciliatory without being condescending and to show such confidence in your research and numbers and product claims that here's the raw data for yourself. Spread the word via as many sites as possible and get as many testimonials as possible.
And I say: Yes, please show us the RAW data- show us the studies- show us the peer reviewed journals- let us meet Dr. Wang and tour the beautiful facility that is the lab (PLEASE look at the photo of the lab on the NPR web site from this mornings report! It is a hole in the wall!) And my all means, please invite me to do a testimonial!
I am so over this...and I am so mad at myself for giving Sherry Bonelli the benefit of the doubt and thinking for one second that she may have been a victim herself. The sad thing is that she really doesn't care what she has done to me or other women in my situation.
