We were surprised to receive a call from the lab at the hospital today with preliminary results from the placental biopsy we had just yesterday.  Full results are pending and will not be in, we’re told, for a week and a half, but they were able to determine a few things for us.

First comments were, “everything looks normal.”  Sigh.  Good news! I like normal.  There is no presence of Down syndrome, Trisome 18 also known as Edwards syndrome, or Trisome 13 also called Patau syndrome.   Chromosomally they were also able to confirm that it is a boy.  Ten days or so till the full results are in, but this was encouraging.

Thanks again for your prayers!  You are a crucial part of this process!
