These were the results of our genetic testing of our baby. We had a little girl with Trisomy 16. I haven't had a chance to discuss this with our doctor yet, but from my mad googling, I have learned it is the most common cause of miscarriage. We have not found out yet if our Trisomy was a full or mosaic. A full trisomy, the chance of recurrence is 1%, with a mosaic, it has a greater chance of recurrence. I am dying to talk to the doctor to see if I can find out if ours was a full or mosaic. I have a call into one of nurses with follow up questions. The good news is that it does not appear to be a structural choromosome issue at this time which would have indicated more of a permanent problem with one of us. Here is the most generic definition I have found:
Trisomy 16 is the most common autosomal trisomy seen in miscarriages and accounts for at least 15% of first trimester miscarriages. Most pregnancies with trisomy 16 are lost around 12 weeks although a small percent may be lost in the second trimester. A few fetuses with mosaic trisomy 16 have survived until birth. Most of these infants have growth failure, psychomotor retardation and die in infancy.
