Ok so -- found out today Finn does NOT have galactosemia!  He's not even a carrier for any variation!  This is fantastic news -- it means he is miraculously in that 25%!!  He beat the odds!!

 

We are so happy!

So, in the end, it was a horribly uncomfortable pregnancy - but I got my home water birth and my baby doesn't have galatosemia!  Pretty fair, if you ask me!  winky.gif  

 

Just wanted to share and update everyone!

That's great! And he's not even a carrier, so it's amazing to know it's something your grandkids won't have to worry about either. Congrats!

YUP!!  And what's great is Nora is a carrier for Duarte's, so we don't have to worry about ANY grandkids having Classic!

 

It's great news all around!!

Thanks everyone!  I'm so glad we didn't do the amnio.  It would have been relief a bit earlier, but with the risk...eh.  We made the right decision for sure.

 

Still doing the happy dance about it all!!  banana.gif
