Thank you for sharing this story.  I am hopeful for your family that things work out ๐Ÿ™‚  It will be good that your family will be able to be part of literature in hopes that other families may make a similar decision.

Thank you for sharing your story! You are an inspiration to women who are told my doctors that their babies are not going to be “normal”. No matter what the outcome is I know that baby will be loved by you guys!

I am praying for you!!!

I hope that everythings goes well ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for sharing.

In a side note, I think many people are scared when the doctors say something “may” happen, and choose to terminate what could also may be a healthy baby.

It’s so absurd, in my opinion, people may die from a car accident, do they stop driving? Or may die from smoking, do they stop doing it?

It’s one thing when doctor say: “your baby will be have X or Y problem.” or “theres a great chance of having Y and X” and other thing is when there is a chance that everything does down well, and people just don’t want to take the change (even if its very high one). So I deaply aplaud your corage ๐Ÿ™‚

@Rivendeler:  I am so sorry you have to go through this. I have never heard of BT. You mentioned it can be a cause of infertility…Is that because it is genetic? Can you be tested for it in advance to find out if you will pass this on to your child? Biology has never been my strong suit!

I admire your decision. I don’t know if I’d have the courage to go through with it and I wish you all the very best.

@Rivendeler:  It’s like a genetic lottery ๐Ÿ™ That’s scary. It would be even worse if you were carrying it and didn’t know as you would be completely blind sighted. I’m glad that you’ve found a source of online support and the odds sound like they are in your favour for a healthy baby boy!

The DNA test sounds like a great idea, but I think I’d be scared to hear the results!

I love that men’s Y chromosomes are both way smaller than the X and have a much lower density of gene, yet these kinds of abnormalities can still happen in regions that are “less” important. Haha. There’s definitely a gold mine about men and usefulness in there somewhere :-).

I’m glad you guys have found some peace in your journey, and that you are getting the support you need. Good luck to your little man!!

90-94% chance of being “normal”…. that seems like pretty good odds to me! Thank you for sharing your story. Best of luck to you, your family, and your new little man!

Thanks for sharing your story. I admire you for taking this into your own hands and researching things yourself instead of going off the doctors words alone.  It sounds like the odds are in your favor and hoping for a healthy baby boy for you. No matter what he is going tohave a family that loves him and thats all that matter.
