1 in 10,000

We are still here.  Sorry for those of you who check daily.  To tell you the truth, there just hasn't been a whole lot to say.  Karsie is wiggling a lot lately, but other than that no news to report.

Until today.  We got a call from the doctor's office saying that all the results (full results) are normal.  In other words, to the best of anyone's knowledge, there are no genetic abnormalities. We are still trying to see if we can get an even more in-depth study to grow the chromosomes even more, but it looks as though we're in the clear for the really bad stuff.  

There was another test that was done for spina bifida and a couple other neurological disorders that came back negative, which is even better news.  

So far, so good.  It looks as though we may just be one of those lucky omphalocele cases that occur in only 1 in 10,000 babies where everything else is normal.  We're still hoping that it will shrink to create less of a problem after birth, but we are rejoicing for the news today anyhow.  Keep praying for continued good results as we will be continuing to test random disorders that do not show up on an amniocentesis.
