Lucky 21 - And the FISH


We doubled down on 21 and won. Check out the Celebration.



Paco passed the FISH test. He is beating one animal after another. Easily.

A baby without Down syndrome will have two fluorescent signals corresponding to their two number 21 chromosomes. A person with trisomy 21 will have three fluorescent signals corresponding to their three number 21 chromosomes.

Paco has two number 21 chromosomes! Win number one.

And then came the FISH testing.

A typical FISH analysis will tell you how many 13, 18, 21, X and Y chromosomes. These are the chromosomes that can result in trisomies for humans.

Paco only has two of each - so he is a winner across the board. He swept the competition.

Christy has claimed that his prize will be a Gold Fish.

She says "You beat the Fish - You get a Fish."

Does this mean we're back to a carefree, easy pregnancy or are we still wracked with worry?

We still have another week to wait for the full report, but we are looking VERY good for now.

I am busy emailing clinic's getting information for our next transfer. We realize that our eggs are degrading fast.

I am worried more about our biological clock right now than I am about Paco. Paco clearly knows how to take care of himself.
