Genetic Results

Standard

We got the fetal genetic test results back from the last miscarriage today. It was chromosomally abnormal – trisomy 22. This particular genetic defect is considered “incompatible with life”. So, there was no way that pregnancy was ever viable.

Still waiting for the results of my own chromosome analysis, but will likely be going to see a genetic counselor to talk about 2 consecutive genetically abnormal fetuses, with different defects and what that means. I’m not sure what I hope to glean from genetic counseling, but it has been offered and if it’s covered by my insurance, why not? More data will help us make a more educated decision.
