I called today to check if the full amniocentesis results had come in and sure enough, they had. Mary Grace does have full triploidy, 69,XXX. Which means that she has 69 chromosomes in every cell in her body. Two "X's" meaning "girl" and the extra "X" means she has an extra set of chromosomes.

There really wasn't much more to report. My next appointment is with the UNC Specialty Clinic next Thursday, February 26th. We will do another ultrasound then to check her growth and to see what all her problem spots look like. Hopefully her heart will be in good shape...please pray for a perfectly formed and working heart between now and next Thursday. Rob and I are taking the news really well; since we had already gotten the preliminary results last Wednesday, it wasn't a shock to us that the full test results would be confirmation of triploidy.
"The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 41:29-31
