Tested positive for 2 mutations have no symptoms worried about my unborn baby

hello- I recently got pregnant and was tested for CF. I found out that i tested positive for 2 mutations classic and mild. They say i am affected and have CF. They say its Atypical because i have no symptoms and have not had any for the 30 years of my life. I have never been sick I am worried about my baby and myself. Has anyone ever heard of this? The Dr.s say it is very rare that i am healthy and have no symptoms which is hard for me to understand. Can anyone relate? Thanks!

Re: Tested positive for 2 mutations have no symptoms worried about my unborn baby

As more mutations are identified -- currently there are over 1500 -- more and more people are being diagnosed at a later age. It's probably important now that you DO know that you are seen by an accreddited CF clinic to insure that you continue to lead a long and hopefully symptom free life.

As for your unborn child... Has your partner been tested in terms of being a carrier? DS was diagnosed because he was born with a bowel obstruction caused by his CF mutation double delta f508.
