Since Darling Husband and I are both Ashkenazi Jewish, we did! I knew I was a Tay-Sachs carrier and he knew he wasn’t already, but it was such a relief to get back results from the 19 gene Jewish panel and find out we have nothing to worry about with those.

I didn’t before ttc. I should have though because I take tretrogal for epilepsy. My other doctors knew I was ttc, and my neurologist had me taking more folic acid, vitamin D and B12 on top of prenatals. I spoke with a genetic counsoler about a month after getting pregnant though. We scheduled a detailed ultrasound for the end of the October to check for mainly spina bifida, which is increased by 2% with tretrogal.
