I’ve stupidly been googling and have found examples of women who were also low risk but went on to receive a post natal diagnosis of DS, eg one who has posted on here with a 1:1,900 risk and then others on other forums with a 1:50,000 risk. So the choice is very simple. it's really all about perspective and finding a way to keep those worries in check. it doesn't mean anything. Although Im in third trimeester and had a risk factor of 1:35000 for down's syndrome, it has started me wondering. To comment on this thread you need to create a Mumsnet account. And in my case knowing that ds2 and ds3 were at a high risk of autism helped me not worry about/focus on DS during their pregnancies (as I said before both were fine anyway). If you sign up for having a child then having a child should be your desire. if you take 35000 babies, one of them will be down's syndrome. You were delivered early because your baby was in trouble. I would live in hope that the OP wouldn't have her future 3 year old adopted if he became disabled as the result of an accident? I'm 36 and so my risk before bloods and scan was 1:281 so the risk has increased . Why? I was googling and worrying. Reading yet another thread where parents and family members of disabled children post unhelpful and cutting comments, I can't just read and run!If you posted asking for advice on how to potty train your son who was a late bloomer due to DS and some dickhead came on telling you that you should have aborted him, you would be hurt and disgusted... ask yourself, how is your post any less hurtful?I often read posts of concerned MTBs asking about testing. she is severely disabled. But it's nearly always a pointless worry. I know of a lady who had a risk factor of 1:50000 for Down's syndrome,but still gave birth to a downs syndrome baby anyway and now I am worried (Im sure there is no need. Are you focussing on DS because it can be tested for?I had a very low risk for DS with my first pregnancy. It’s such a personal decision, and deciding to terminate or adopt is not the same as saying people with disabilities shouldn’t exist! These tests only test for the most common ones.

Can people really not see the difference between knowing you will give birth to a child with medical complications/ disabilities and having a seemingly healthy baby that later develops a medical condition???? Imagine being a person with Downs in a world where the general accepted view is that you shouldn't have been allowed to be born. What I'm trying to say is, given how far along you are, even if you found out tomorrow you were that 'one', what would that change for you given how far along you are?

Especially when it's a fear without a particular reason. Down syndrome is a genetic disorder caused when abnormal cell division results in an extra full or partial copy of chromosome 21. 2. Their new baby IS part of their family and if everyone aborted babies with Downs then that disability wouldn't exist. As the family member of an amazing boy who happens to have DS society's attitude makes me sad. I assumed once ds1 was born that any worries I had had during pregnancy would go, in fact his birth was the just the start of the worries. Well of course it has to happen doesn't it. It's the most common genetic chromosomal disorder and cause of learning disa… I've just been talking it through today with a consultant. I had time to deal with the outcome before I gave birth if that makes sense. The vast majority are of course absolutely fine, but you will hear horror story after horror story now. Then I came across the Harmony test which can give you results for Down's and trisomy 18 with 99% and 98% confidence respectively and results for trisomy 1 with 80% confidence. But may the trouble is that where pregnancy and birth is concerned there are no guarantees! She said she would consider adoption due to her personal situation, of which we know nothing. Personally I think it can help give some perspective if different people give their own examples. Go and get an covid test? This extra genetic material causes the developmental changes and physical features of Down syndrome. Im sorry for my silly worries, as far as I know the pregnancy is developing normal, so I feel very guilty for moaning and worrying in the way I am. Woman just called to say she's sleeping with my partner. I also have a disabled child (nothing that could have been dx prenatally either). You did not have preterm labor, therefore you do not have an increased risk for prematurity. The worry is everyone who says to me'oh your baby will be fine then' I know she probably will be, and I will love her no matter what, but after miscarriages in the past, I want everything to be ok, and would hate for there to be something wrong. I think there can be a tendency to focus on it because it can be tested for. I tried to be balanced (as much as its possible to be with my bias). Well now I've given my example. But if the test will give you peace of mind then I would go for it. It depends on the prize and how you feel about being kicked in the teeth whether you'll go into the room. My point is simply that with the best will in the world, nobody can be guaranteed a risk free pregnancy or outcome. As many people have said the harmony test is a test for the most common genetic differences but it doesnt rule out other causes of learning disability, physical disabilities, mental health well being etc. I had my letter through this morning and yes officially it is low risk but 1:163 so only just. The nature of the forum is that people will share their experiences. I hope you can enjoy the rest of your pregnancy. Worry is part of being a parent you just have to learn how to manage it really or it can become paralysing (which is no good for anyone). I got at low risk 1/10,000 for Trisomy21 (Down syndrome) but my OB called me last night saying the blood work done with NT scan show high risk (1/28) for Down syndrome. I was given high risk for Downs - 1:148. At the time I was happy with this risk and decided not to do the Harmony test as it works out as a 0.038 per cent chance. Is it fear of the unknown? As I have said already Im being silly with my worries and I should look forward to her arrival, but at the moment I am finding that difficult. To think boycotting to my DS wedding is too far? This extra genetic material causes the developmental changes and physical features of Down syndrome.Down syndrome varies in severity among individuals, causing lifelong intellectual disability and developmental delays. Of course there are no guarantees but when pre-natal testing exists then certain disorders can be identified and people can choose to have a termination if they want to.Just because you 'signed up for any child' doesnt mean everyone else has to. I hadn't realised there were such stringent rules in place. my child has a very rare chromosome disorder which would not have been picked up by any antenatal test. You behaving like the thought police is not very helpful. Sore throat? The low PAPP-A is a risk factor for Down syndrome but in some patients it can be a marker for poor pregnancy outcome (low birthweight, preeclampsia, etc.). I appreciate this is an emotive topic but I need some advice/insight from others who have been in this position. I wonder about our attitude to difference as a whole. I can therefore totally relate to this feeling of worry, and "why SHOULD this baby be ok?" I appreciate this is an emotive topic but I need some advice/insight from others who have been in this position. There is no instruction manual. 3. The truth is you wouldn't do anything, in 8 weeks we'll have a baby and we'll love it no matter what'. I dont think thats unkind or designed to shame. My point wasnt to label or judge anyone as I higlighted the decision not to have an infant with DS is a majority society one. Somebody will be that 1.1 in 35,000 is very, very low risk. and how are that lady and her baby doing now? One of my biggest regrets is not enjoying mine. It isn't my place to judge or criticise any individual or to guide their choice.
