    siri, many thanks for your quick reply. site looks great will look more into it.comforting to know your personal bloods, as my post was actually a personal issue. my dd is 19 and have found she is a-ve, hubby & I both a+ve, just like you. can see a flicker in his head?? (bear in mind my babe has been his double since she was born, (minus goatee etc!) Am seriously pee'd off with him, I don't want to vent personal issues here,sorry guys, but i tune in all the time for advice and things here. after a long long day with my tinies, the last thing I want to hear is a doubt over where this angel of mine came from!!!!! sorry again, other things have happened today, thanks for being interested!

    My child's pediatrician said it was impossible. Little did he know, huh?

    Yes, it happens and when you look at that site in more detail, you'll see how this can occur.

    Good luck with your personal situation. You will be able to show the proof needed (and, that's a shame to be disbelieved......I can relate).

    Hey, just noticed (my bad) that you are in Scotland.

    Yes, all nurses from all over the world helping one another at allnurses.

    I'm glad you came here about this. Hate it had to be for this particular reason, but glad you now have the "proof".

    Come on back and post some more. So good to have you.
