Re: Anyone test for Down's yet?

I have never tested because I just don't think I could handle the anxiety. The birth of this child will be amazing and a newborn requires extensive care regardless of being born with Down's. So as long as you are prepared to take care of a newborn you will be prepared to take care of a Down's newborn if necessary. I would not risk the amnio because in the end it won't change the outcome you will just have longer to fret.
I really hope that all things turn out the way that you want. I can say that I volunteered in a Down's group home for adults and they are amazing people. They hold my heart like children each so amazing in their own right.
