Hello all, I am a newbie on here and am at a loss of encouraging words for my daughter. She is 9 weeks pregnant and just received a phone call from her OB GYN telling her that she had the Delta F508 mutation gene. She does not have CF to my knowledge she is 23 yrs old and never really been sick. I guess she got the gene from me but I have had 3 children and no one has ever informed of any issues.
She is really freaking out and I am trying to research things for her so I can give her some positive feedback to set her mind at ease even just a little. She will go for more testing within the next few weeks, but I have read info about prenatal genetic testing and I am afraid of complications with her pregnancy if she allows them to do any testing to the unborn baby. We are both in agreement that regardless of the results she woould still have the baby, so is testing the fetus really necessary?
Please anyone with advice would be helpful.
