Hi, I'm not sure where I belong. I'm looking for a group that deals with being a genetic carrier for a syndrome that means you have a 1 in 4 chance of passing on something to your child. I've had two previous pregnancies with this syndrome - one terminated at 13 weeks and one delivered at 19 weeks (so I wouldn't call it a miscarriage although it missed being labelled a stillbirth by a day or two - not sure which of those groups I belong to).

 

The syndrome itself doesn't matter as all recessive genetic syndromes have the same odds. I'm just struggling where to post - I've tried TTC board and Pregnancy after problems conceiving but I'm still not sure it's the right audience.

 

Can you let me know where to post this please? Desperately looking for others going through the same thing and hopefully have some success stories in there too to give me hope.

Thanks
