GREAT NEWS!!! (re:genetic tests)

Hello ladies...

I have been sick with worry the past few weeks after finding out from my OB that I am a carrier of Fragile X syndrome.  After WAY too much reading online about the disorder - i was thinking the worst...well i went to the doctor yesterday and he let me know that i am in the "gray" zone...i have to go for more genetic counseling in a few weeks - but according to many online sources (and my OB) the gray zone means that my x chromosome is barely affected and when/if passed onto a baby there is barely any chance that the baby would have the full blown fragile x syndrome and would more likely just be a carrier...i am SO relieved...and if my morning sickness wasn't this bad i would go dance & sing in the streets!!!  We also got to the see the little bean and the heartbeat last night...8w1d...I am finally hopeful. Thanks for your endless support!
