Amniocentesis...take 2

I guess there is something to be said for the second time around! This time the process was quicker, less painful, and all the fluid needed was collected. I told my husband that when we were in the office I felt like we were rock stars. Everyone knew we were the couple whose cells did not grow...I mean that hasn't happened in 6 years! Everyone gave us a kind smile, told us that they were routing for us, and to breathe and relax...they were right! In 24 hours we had our preliminary results...two chromosomes for trisomy 13,18, and 21...there is a sigh of relief. Ten days later we were called with the rest of the results...ALL good in the genes! PHEW!
