I have a genetic abnormality called a translocation. It affects my chromosomes 21 and 14 and is asymptomatic but causes me to be a "carrier" for Downs Syndrome. At 26 years old, I have a 30% chance of having a child with Downs Syndrome.
My father also has the translocation and passed it on to my brother and I. My brother and his wife have had 2 children with Downs Syndrome. We had no incidence of Downs Syndrome prior to this in our family. When my nephew was also born with Downs Syndrome, everyone in the family got genetic testing.
2 months ago, I had a healthy baby girl who does not have Downs and does not possess this translocation either. I hope to have more children in the future. I am interested in finding other people who may have experience with this (or something similar) and all the prenatal testing that goes along with it. Are there other people out there with this in their families?
