sadly i was born with a balanced chromosome translational which means chromosome 8 and 21 have traded parts.

it means if i get pregnant the baby needs to have the 2 good ones or the 2 broken ones, if it gets 1 good and 1 broken it will result in a miscarriage, but if it gets the broken ones it will also have this chromosome problem.

i have had 4 miscarriages so far its really hard to deal with it at time, and know they a chance i can give it to my child it horrible i feel so guilty wanting to have a baby even though there’s a chance of he/she will have to go thought this. lucky there’s IVF out there so one day if i do get a baby with the same problem as me i can save the pain of loosing a baby.
