Ryan was born on Feb. 26,1997, one month early. I (Larry) found out the next morning when I went to the hospital. The nurse stopped me on the way to the neonatal care unit, and told me about their suspicions and that they had called a genetics doctor in. I had to tell my wife about their suspicions, and that a genetics doctor was coming in to talk to us later that day. The geneticist came in, told us why they suspected DS and that they took a blood sample to test and confirm the diagnosis.
I am the mother of a beautiful red-headed, 13-year-old daughter named Lyndsay. This is Lyndsay's story.
Lyndsay is my first child. She decided she wanted to make her entrance into this world 3 weeks before my due date. I was only in labor about 5 hours. Everything went fine with the delivery, she weighed 5lb. 5 oz.; however, when they brought her to me, she wouldn't eat. They took her back to the nursery to put her in the warmer because she wasn't maintaining her temp.
Hi! My name is Susan and I am 31 years of age. I took the triple test at 16 weeks. I didn't expect to hear that there were any problems, in fact, I had forgotten I had taken the test till I got the call. This was followed by an Amnio at 20 weeks.
