At this point, given the fact that CPCs were detected, my risk of having a baby with a genetic defect is no greater than a women of the same age with no CPCs. (Did that make sense?) Anyway, the dr said that my risk of m/c with amnio is at this point higher than my risk of genetic problems. So, we declined the amnio and will go back to enjoying and not worrying!

oh, btw, I could no longer take the suspense and we decided to find out the sex. Rachel will have a sister and I am so excited for her!
Wonderful news!

Glad to hear from the u/s that the docs are not as worried.

Congrats on your baby girl!

I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
