IMO it'd be good if you could find out sooner than later (June), if your child does have CF, so you can begin treatment -- chest physiotherapy, enzymes, etc. Why risk lung damage, etc by waiting another 3 months for a sweat test, which could very well come back as being inconclusive. My son CF, was born with a bowel obstruction and had two blood tests, which indicated he had homozygous delta 508. His sweat test wasn't even borderline -- it was "normal".

We were able to begin treatment almost immediately. Is there a CF clinic anywhere near you. If you go online to the cystic fibrosis foundation site, you can find out the nearest CF clinic. Might be best to see about going to a specialist instead of having your pediatrician guessing at what it might or might not be.
