My name is Candi and my child was diagnosed with DS when I was 3 1/2 months pregnant. They said they are 100% sure he has it. I am 20 years old and this is my first child.
The father of the baby has been there going through this whole thing with me. He is 22 years old and this is his first child too. We are so scared, excited, confused and a little discouraged at the same time. I went to the heart doctor and they said his heart is perfectly normal! I cried my heart out with joy. I am now 8 months pregnant and I am due September 8, 2006. The doctor said he is 31/2 pds. Is that small for being 8 months? If so is it because he has DS? If anyone can give me any helpful information on DS or their personal experiences, please contact me below.
