Fragile x test results
HI.
I am 22 weeks pregnant with a baby girl. I had Amnio test, everything was Normal, except that Fragile x repeat was 55.

Five years ago I had the test during my pregnancy with my son, my repearts was 55, my son got the perfect x.
My repeats never changed since then, still 55.

I am so worried if the baby girl will have any problems. I know I have 55 repeats like her, I don't have any problems, I am just sooooo worried.
Any idea please?

It is highly unlikely that your baby girl will have any problems due to fragile x.  As you pointed out, you have 55 repeats and you have no problems :).  She'll probably be a lot like you!

The fragile x gene has been recorded to expand in offspring when it is greater than 59 repeats in the parent -- there are NO cases of mothers who have 55 repeats causing their children to have fragile x syndrome.  As a rule, fragile x of greater than 200 repeats is what causes fragile x syndrome (and even then, it usually affects boys more so than girls).  I truly believe you do NOT have to worry about fragile x affecting your baby girl.  

Enjoy your pregnancy, and best wishes to you!
Congratulations on your coming family :).

I would ask the parents on RETTNET their advice these people know everything about fragile x syndrome. It's a world wide group that share what they know. Let me know what happens:) Good luck!
