I am currently 15 weeks & tested "intermediate" on my Tay Sachs screen. SO, my husband had to go in & get tested as well to see if he was a carrier. If he is, we have to get an amnio to see if the baby has Tay Sachs. The chances are slim that he is, but his heritage is kind of shady info wise, with eastern european roots, so it's a possibility. If he is a carrier, there's a 25% chance (I think) that the baby has Tay Sachs. But we were waiting until after the NIPT test to tell family & then this happened. I'm totally showing (people I see out walking the dog have asked me!) & my family knows we were trying, so they'll know right away. It's taking so darn long to get my husband's test back that I'm ready to crawl the walls! I've already called my OB's office once & skipped a family get together on my husband's side this weekend. I have to see my family this week, starting tomorrow no getting around it. I just can't wait any longer! I must know!!!!!! Sorry, this wasn't really a question. Just a need to vent anxiety. Knock wood that my hubby is negative, I still have to decide soon if I want to get an amnio anyway. I thought I did before, but now I'm not sure... I knew parenting would be hard, but I wasn't thinking pregnancy would be this stressful!
