Amy Halterman is exploring the joys of pregnancy for a second time

“15 week still no gender. Waiting on the blood dna test,” the 1000-lb. Sisters star captioned the Instagram posts. Most ultrasounds can capture the baby’s gender at about 18-21 weeks, so it’s still a bit too early. Some ultrasounds can capture the gender as early as 14 weeks, but it seems like Michael and Amy Halterman are still waiting.

Amy also uploaded a few photos indicating her baby’s growth progress. At the 15-week mark, Amy’s baby is about the size of an apple. The baby is also developing facial features and taste buds at the moment.

But some fans want to know why the baby would need a blood DNA test. Amy didn’t list a specific reason here, but there are many reasons that they would get one.

A fetal blood test can detect chromosome problems, which would let the parents know if their baby had Down syndrome for example. There’s also a higher chance of accurately predicting the baby’s gender through a blood test.

It doesn’t appear that there’s any reason to be concerened for now. But be sure to keep checking back with us for the latest on Amy Halterman’s pregnancy.

However, many fans are worried about how Tammy Slaton is going to handle the new baby. She loves little Gage, but it appears she does struggle with jealousy issues from time to time. Since Amy became a mother, she’s had less time and energy to handle Tammy.

With two little ones, Amy will definitely have her hands full.

  1. Probably the DNA tests that look for potential abnormalities like Downs Syndrome and potential issues that would require early delivery or the potential of a premature birth. . While she has lost a lot of weight, she is still high risk. Let’s try not to assume the worst. These are fairly standard tests now.

    1. We all know how bad Amy wants a second child. She needs to wait & listen to her drs. Amy complains how tired she is all the time & nothing gets done just taking care of Gage. I can’t imagine how she will feel with the additional weight, taking care of a new house, Gage & then when Tammy calls.

  2. It’s time to stop giving Tammy Slaton any attention. I’ve never seen such a whiney, temper tantrum throwing brat in my life. From someone that has been over weight my entire life and saved and saved to get the surgery because it wasn’t covered at the time she pisses me off. She is given such a huge opportunity and she’s just throwing it away like her life. Well if she doesn’t care…neither do I. There are more interesting people in her family you can fire her. After all aren’t you rewarding her for behaving badly with every pay check? I did the work and will continue to do the rest of my life it’s not a fix it and move on its forever. Hell her doctors are nice…turn Dr. Now loose on her!

  3. I totally agree on all counts! She is a miserable , ugly inside & out, whiney brat I stopped watching the program simply because she would make me mad at how ungrateful she is.

  4. Hey, not to worry. Tammy will not comply with any weight loss program and will drop dead in the near future. Given her horrible condition and uncooperative attitude, I’m surprised she’s still around!
