cystic fibrosis screening when pregnant!
well......as some of you know i had my first appt last tuesday.....all the bloodwork, urine and pap was done as well as the first u/s although i was only 6 weeks at the time.
come back from lunch today and get a call from the ob. tried calling him back but he had left for a delivery! was terrified....told the nurse to have him call me asap as now i'm nervous...do i have cervical cancer, am i not producing enough hormones to keeep the baby? well...he called about an hour after that....told me not to worry but i tested as a carrier for cystic fibrosis...he could hear the shock and worry in my voice and kept reiterating not to worry...tells me that htis is very common and he sees this in 1-30 women. told me as long as my husband doesn't test positive, all will be fine. so...called our primary care dr and got him in tomorrow for his blood work. want him to tell the dr that we need this by next monday for my next appt (which isn't until tuesday but hey....my primary is slow!) i'm counting on my husband's genes to get us thru this! any one else get this news? i'm a bit calmer now but was frantic and crying at work......
