Fragile X syndrome
Hi everyone. I just found out that I am a carrier of fragile x syndrome. I have 58 repeats, so I have a premutation but not the full mutation. I meet with a genetic counselor on the 5th, but I am really worried. My husband keeps telling me it’s going to be ok but I keep thinking about it. There’s no history in my family of intellectual disabilities or anything, but I do have anxiety and depression which I learned could be related. I’m sure they are going to suggest having tests done, but we aren’t sure if we want to know.
We went from being super excited for this pregnancy but now I am really worried. Do any of you have experience with this? I’d appreciate any advice/reassurance!
