Peter Cade/Getty By Alice Klein I couldn’t help trembling slightly as I collected DNA from my mouth to send away for testing. My husband and I want to know our chances of having children with fragile X syndrome, which is passed on by the mother, so I was doing the test to see if I am a carrier. The test also screens for cystic fibrosis and spinal muscular atrophy – if I am a carrier for either of those, my husband will get tested too. We don’t have any of these conditions ourselves,
