YAY!!

Just a quick update! After 3 agonizing weeks of waiting for my bloodwork to comeback from the genetics lab, I am officially not a carrier for the disorder my little one has! This means, that we have a less than 1% chance (which is the same odds as every other pregnancy) of having another child with the same disorder. We have been so looking forward to expanding our family, and now we can with minimal risk! I am also relieved to know, that had we done genetic testing prior to getting pregnant, there would have been no way for us to forsee this.
