2nd confirmed diagnosis

Sep 16, 2009 - 0 comments

Today I received the news that my own genetic testing from Baylor that I have IP.  My daughter had her confirmed diagnosis last month.  I want to have more children and my daughter was my first pregnancy. DH does not want to do IVF w/ PGD because of cost and risk for multiples but I feel that knowingly propagating the disorder is selfish and irresponsible and how would I explain to another child born with the disorder?  For my daughter, we didn't know, but now we know and have choices.  We know CVS is an option but I'm not sure what choice I would make as my case is fairly mild and my daughter's seems to be just the rash (so far.)
