Hello! I am so excited to be a part of Healthblogger. My son, Benjamin, was born with Cystic Fibrosis, March 11, 2009. My husband and I had no idea we were carriers until my initial blood work through my OB, revealed I was one. We had my husband tested, then decided on an amnio at 15 weeks gestation.
