As there is increased length of an arm of chromosome, I will suggest that please contact a good genetic center for complete study of that chromosome.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

But at the same time want to ensure my baby is healthy in all respects. any suggestions? My height is 154 cms and weight is 61 kgs. I have no medical history, except for a laproscopy done for endometriosis 1.5 years back
