    I actually did make a typo mistake in my post which i apologise for.. My translocation is 14:21 not the same as yours.. but the outcomes i have listed are the same.

    Ive read a lot of articles on this since this post was first written and I dont think what I wrote is incorrect.

    The abnormalities affecting chromosome 14 rarely survive 1st trimester.
    I know 21 can survive but there is a huge rate of mc and serious abnormalities which is why i wrote deformed. I can see how this would be offensive to some people but I was very upset when I wrote this and just needed an outlet.

    At the time of this post being written I had just found out about my translocation and I was devastated. I cried for days. I saw no hope and I am trying to have one child.. Its always harder when you have none to be hopeful.

    Its great that you have healthy kids and havent been through a lot of heartache but I have spoken over FB to women with robertsonian translocations that have had over 20 mcs.. and some have had several terminations for medical reasons.. perhaps you got lucky.. it doesnt mean everyone will get lucky.

    Each translocation affects each individual differently. There are women with your translocation on fb groups that havent been so lucky to have kids.. and even with IVF theyre producing unbalanced results.

    Here are some interesting sources for anyone looking for info:

    I also wanted to point this out... i can understand how any child born with patau syndrome would be a joy to their families.. but when you first get diagnosed and you read something like this.. its pretty heart breaking. Joy or not, wondering how long youll have with that child is painful and not a desired outcome. Wondering if it will live to even be delivered is also heart breaking.
    The word deformed was incorrectly used in my post and chromosome 13 in my case is not an issue ..regardless i should have written serious birth defects as its more appropriate.
