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 :).
