We have had to deal with "thinking" our baby boy has downs. I'm 22 years old and this is our 3rd child. We did the routine quad screen that tests for downs and spina bifida, with that test came back abnormal they rushed me in for an emergency ultrasound. When I finally saw my Dr she told me spina was ruled out and that my results from blood work show high risk for downs, she then reffered me to a high risk Dr where they did a level 2 utrasound, offered and amnio and another alternative called The harmony. We opted out of the amnio due to the risks and did the harmony, according to the results we are low risk for downs but they have not completely ruled it out. We are just waiting until our baby boy is here to find out what the lord up above is blessing us with. It was very hard for me to accept at first and I still have my moments where I break down and cry but I know the lord doesn't give anyone anything they cannot handle. I also believe he gives special children to special mothers. Overall, we are still excited about our baby boy for he is OURS, we can't wait to meet him. I see your post was posted in May, can you give me an update?
