Take several deep breaths and calm down.  You already have one healthy child and the chances are good for your second child also.  

A genetic counselor would be the best way to go.  Why don't you want to tell your doctor?  

The problems of cousins having children is mostly based on incorrect information.

I do not have children but many of the poster here do and they have had no problems.  According to them, you should tell your children when they are little using the Peter Rabbit books.

We are here to encourage you and help you.

Perhaps the most detrimental thing you can do for your baby is to worry yourself sick... and over nothing. Eat well, sleep well, and think well. Everything will be fine. The baby girl will be perfectly fine, you will see.
