My son has CF and was diagnosed at 5 months old. Until he was diagnosed we had no idea that the CF gene was even in my family. I want to have more children but I'm not sure the best way to accomplish that. I know we could just 'hope for the best' and see what happens but we have a 1 in 4 chance of having another baby with CF and I'm not sure if that's fair to knowingly do to a child. Another option is IVF and that's insanely expensive. Is there anybody else out there who has faced this same dilemma? Anyone have more than one child with CF? I'd love to hear other people's thoughts...
