  1. Wonderful news!! I'm so happy for you! Take care.
  2. Hooray! I'm so relieved for you!
  3. So now another issue I have been struggling with the last week and a half. They found from my CVS results that I am a carrier for cystic fibrosis. So they are testing my husband...the results should FINALLY come today or tomorrow. The waiting is excruciating. He has a 1 in 25 chance of being a carrier. If he is not a carrier, we are fine. If he is a carrier, we have a 25 percent change of our baby having some form of it. At least for once, this is NOT age related. Its been there since I was born. I should be glad that at least I know. If I would not be of AMA, they would have not likely done all this genetic testing.

    Im hoping that since I overcame 1 in 8 odds of Downs, this is even less likely, but still, why me!

    Im so nervous today. Why does everything have to be so complicated and scary?! I need some positive words of encouragement!
  4. ^ viba, i'm sorry if you've already answered this but may i ask your age. i'm 35 and having my first so i'm just curious.

    i do wish you luck and hope your husband is not a carrier of CB. try to stay busy busy as possible.

    i had an u/s yesterday -my first in three months- and i was so nervous but i didn't think about it or i would go crazy. i prayed and hoped for the best!
  5. viba424- I'm praying and hoping the best for you and your baby! stay busy today! I know its really tough to wait. I'm anxiously waiting for my AFP results too... let's hang in there :smile:
