Those things don't mix. So background is my sister has a slight chromosome abnormality. It's not anything major - she is normal, married and has a 3 year old. Our whole family didn't even know until she got pregnant with an angel baby and she had an amnio done. So literally she found out when she was 31. When she got preg with my nephew they did another amnio to make sure he was ok. I distinctly remember her saying the results came back normal. Fast forward to last week. At my 14 week OB appointment we talked about skipping genetic testing and that we were told likely my sisters issue is a one off and not hereditary. I was telling my mom about it when she says my nephew carries the same abnormality as my sister. Well sh*t. Would have been nice to know 3 years ago when she had those results which now means it is hereditary. After this we decided we should get the genetic testing done so now I am getting myself tested next week. If I am negative we will skip the counseling all together like we did when I was preg with DS. I am just so annoying I am just now hearing this and that his could have affected me and my current DS. I do have to say that the abnormality symptoms I guess u could say that my sister has is that she can be a little socially awkward and doesn't deal well in school type settings. For me I have always been polar opposite of my sister and the abnormality actually explained why we are different. I really doubt I carry the same issue but man alive. This is important and why they thought they told me when they didn't is beyond me. So now I am carrying this weight around and if the test is positive I am not sure how I am going to take it being I have had a normal life. Not like she hasn't she has but I am just upset at the whole situation. Sorry for the rant. Thankfully my doctor is ordering the bloodwork and if it comes back negative for me we will skip the conseling. Ugh. And we will know he results within a week.
