So, on a happy note, had an ultrasound, and found out we are team BLUE!! DH chose the name Garren Matthew...our family hates it, lol.

On a more serious note, DH and I both found out that we are carriers of cystic fibrosis. I am having an amnio on Wednesday to determine if the baby has it. This will help us decide to deliver at a different hospital and have NICU staff on delivery. I am freaking out, both about the amnio and the results. Anyone else had to deal with this?.

Congrats on a baby boy. I like the name and think it sounds good with your daughters name as well. I wish you luck with the amnio. Sorry I have never been in that position to give you advice.

A friend of mine and her DH are both carriers for cystic fibrosis as well. They have a perfectly happy and healthy baby boy.. I know it can be very scary but I am sure that all will turn out well. Keep us posted on how the amnio goes

When my son was born he was tested for CF like all babies now are. The peds called us when he was a week or so and said they think he had it. We had to have a sweat test done on him. Thank god he does not have it but we did find out DH and him are both carriers, I am not. If i remember correctly its a one in four chance? My friend and her DH are both carriers and only found out once their 3rd child was born with CF. I am sure she would be happy to talk to you if you ever had any questions

We are currently waiting on test results for downs, the waiting is the hardest part. I will be thinking of you. Keep us updated.
HUGS

Thank you ladies for all the support and prayers! I am sure I will have a ton of questions moving forward, right now I am just overwhelmed. I know tons of you are waiting on test results, and I am glad we can use each other for support. Great, now I am getting teary-eyed. LOL

Congrats on your BOY!!!

I am a CF carrier but DH was negative. I remember waiting on the results from DHs bloodwork when we were pregnant with Connor and how nervous and stressful it was. I can only imagine what you are feeling right now. I hope the amnio results are great and you have a healthy little boy.

So happy to hear that you are having a boy!!!! Congratulations.
SOrry I have no advice on the amnio. I have also never had one or needed to weigh out the pros/cons of having one.
I am praying for you that yours goes well and that you have wonderful results. Please keep us posted!
