If im pregnant with my cousin's baby, what kind of problems will the baby have ? Will it be ugly ?

It takes quite a few more generations of incestual relationships for such grand scale health complications to occur. You're likely to have a healthy baby, but the social and emotional ramifications of the relationship will be difficult to deal with.

It is hard to say because it is all dependent on the genetic genes of you and your partner. the best way to tell is the process of your pregnancy. You can always go to a doctor and have test run.

It could be totally normal or it could not. No way to really tell, but a good doctor can usually detect if there will be any real birth defects.

It's a myth that incest babies are born deformed. But I think they are at risk for more health complications,
The main problem your child will have is mental, if you tell him/her about the situation when he's/shes older.
If I were you I'd probably not tell the child it's an incest baby. And possibly move away from your family.

Deformed babies as a result of incest is not a myth!

Also, do you think this child will never know his father is his mother's cousin. Regardless, of where she moves.

I meant the parents move away with the baby. Not her by herself.

And if it is a fact show the proof instead of just saying it.

well im doing this by myself. i have done alot of research & doctors say i have a 95% chance of having a healthy baby . I have also read about people having no problems what so over with their babies. Im in a bad situation because my mom wants to keep it but i cant tell her it could be cousins . I know its disgusting but i got really drunk that night & we did use a condom . && he wants an abortion but i want to keep it . but if it's going to have health problems , i dont want it .
