Hey there. my name is Alison and I have a beautiful little girl named Adeline. Adeline is a blessing in disguise. my husband and I were trying to conceive for months before we found out I was pregnant with Adeline. the pregnancy had a few complications (I had placenta previa) and I had to be on semi bed rest for a month when I was four months along. early in the pregnancy I was told there was a possibility of down syndrome in her.
My son Christopher was born in April. We did not know at first he had mds. There was some suspicion on one of my 4 ultrasounds when I was pregnant, but my doctor didn't feel there was anything else consistent with the down's. Needless to say, he didn't follow up with a amino.
Carlos and I found out about Matthew's diagnosis before he was born. We had an amnio, as with our first child, because of my "advanced" age. I was a little concerned when it took longer than with our first child to get the results, then, when the doctor called me, as opposed to one of the office help, which was the case with our first, I KNEW something was wrong. All I remember was the words "something wrong" and "Mosaic Down Syndrome (a "milder" form of Down Syndrome)."
Fact About Us
