One more question...by doing the amnio, is it possible that your baby is just a carrier instead of actually being affected?
I was wondering because my daughter (who does not have CF)is a carrier of the same mutation that my boys have (tested by genetic testing, blood), but, she is only a carrier.
It would be interesting to see a sweat chloride test done to actually see if your baby has it. The sweat testing will be inaccurate at early infancy (just a FYI). My boys tested 96% positive for CF at age 6 months.
I have never personally known a mother to have the amnio done prior, so, I am totally clueless here and is very interested in your information.
Kathy, mom to identical twin boys with CF (9yrs), daughter 20, grandaughter 2 1/2, one on the way!
