try not to worry, i think both you and DF would have to be carriers for baby to actually have the possibility of having CF, and even then baby may only be a carrier.

And I think the only way the baby can get it is if both of you are carriers?

Sorry Hayley - posted at the same time!

Well even though it's a bit scary to think about at least they found out early. That way they can do the testing and make sure your bean is ok!

Hope df's tests go well. How was it picked up in you? Was it routine testing? Our baby will have a heel prick test when it is 3 days old which tests for CF, PKU and.... another couple of things I can't remember. But as far as I know they don't routinely test parents for CF etc.

Even if dh is a carrier you have a 1 in 4 chance that the baby will have cf.

Keep us updated and I'll pray that everything goes well...
