The genetics specialist called this morning and i haven’t been able to think about much else. sure the emails are piling up and there are a million late projects but my mind is on one thing. i told you guys we would be frank every step and here is it’s. we did the genetic test and carrier test this time around. the trisomies test came back normal. the carrier test showed i’m a carrier for spinal muscular atrophy. 1 in 40 women are carriers and if kevin is a carrier too, then the baby would have 1 in 4 chance of having the disease. i don’t even know what to think right now before kevin gets tests too but can’t help my mind from wandering. if you’ve had the same or similar situation from carrier testing, i’d love to talk to you! on the bright side, the gender came in too! we pick up the results on wednesday ❤️ #joygrows #12weekspregnant
