I understand your concern regarding this genetic condition especially at this time. It is best that you discuss this with your attending physician. Prenatal genetic counselling and genetic screening tests such as first trimester screening or the quad screen, amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling may b indicated. Take care and do keep us posted.
