Eta. BUT in context of marrying a close relative, yes, it would be the recessive ones you are particularly worried about.

But neither parent would be a carrier etc. Unlike my daughter's syndrome which is Smith-lemli-optiz syndrome.
The word 'syndrome' isn't key in it being a carrier type condition.
Syndrome is just a word that brings together a myriad of symptoms and calls it something. If that makes sense.
I'm probably not doing a good job of explaining it.

Marfen syndrome is dominant. I don't think dominance matters for a genetic disease to be considered a syndrome.

Here's a link discussing the difference between disease and syndrome. http://www.protocol-online.org/biolo...sts/14819.html
I get that some things can be passed down from a parent. I'm not trying to have a debate ladies, I just repeated what the geneticist told us when discussing a possible genetic syndrome that is possibly the reason our daughter died and what it meant for us having another baby. I have a sister with a disorder so I know what it's like to feel like I was the parent whose 'fault' it was. It was explained to us that when it came to genetic syndromes we were either both carriers or it was a random occurrence. Apologies if that's not always the case.

I'm 5 weeks pregnant and we have told my 2 year old DD.
My mil found out about the pregnancy and when DD said
"I'm a big sister"
"No you might be a big sister, you aren't a big sister".
She also told me not to get attached to the pregnancy and really i shouldn't even be putting any thought into it because it might end badly.
