: My daughter has Cystic Fibrosis and she is now 4 yrs old. Things were really hard for her starting out w/ respitory and digestive. She started gaining weight and now weighs over 40 pounds!!! We are very proud of that accomplishment. But although her respitory is better, she still has some problems mainly sinus. Thats a brief history.. Now here's my situation. I have recently found out that we are expecting our 3 child (our 1st is healthy w/o cf). I am happy that i'm pregnant, but very, very worried about the new baby having cf.. I know there is a 1:4 chance of CF but statistics mean nothing to me. And I worry that the new baby is going to take away care from my daughter with CF... Has anyone ever been in my situation, if so, what was the out come and do you have any suggestions for us.
: Thank You,

Pamela, I was three months pregnant when I found out my first had cf. I did not have amnio done because what could be done anway until after birth? So she was tested and negative 1 month later. If your 3rd is positive, you just do what you have to, ask for help in daily management, you can do it!! Julie
