    I think I would find out if I was a carrier before becoming pregnant.  If you are, then you can get further testing once you are pregnant.  If not, then you will know you don’t have to worry once you DO get pregnent.

    ETA: Darling Husband and I agree that if we found out through fetal screening and tests that the child we were carrying would be born with severe disabilities, we would most likely terminate the pregnancy.  So I totally don’t judge you for not wanting future children to go through what you’ve witnessed your cousin go through.

    if I were you, I’d want to know–I’d get the genetic test now. I’ve had genetic counselling for breast cancer (my mother and paternal grandma had cancer, so I was a prime candidate for testing) and was really glad I did. It was nerve-wracking waiting for the results, but a relief to get them–I’m not a carrier for the strand they test for after all. I’m the kind of person that wants to know as much info as possible before making any kind of decision, so I would rather know.
