I mean it seemed like a dream at the time. I’d just been given darn near the best news of my life…your baby is chromosomally typical…and before the genetic counselor hung up she said, “Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy!”
No one has ever said that to me before.
I guess that’s because I’ve never done any prenatal chromosomal testing before. Given my advanced maternal age, however it seemed prudent to get as much information as we could. If you read Inconceivable, you know I had an amnio done when I was 16 weeks pregnant with Logan. The purpose of the amnio was to get an exact DNA match to the his parents. We wanted to make sure we were handing over the child I was carrying to the correct people. Anways, you may recall it was not a pleasant experience. Therefore, I had no desire to lather, rinse and repeat. That’s why I was thrilled to learn there is a new test that can diagnose chromosomal abnormalities in a fetus and all it involves is a blood draw.
