Hi, I decided to give my baby a chance, thanks to those who sent messages to me. I went for a nuchal scan and blood test for Downs last week and it has come back as a one in two chance of Downs, etc.
I am having an amnio [amniocentesis] on August 22nd to see if baby is Downs. My nuchal scan revealed 4.5mm and the norm is 2mm. I don’t know what I will do if my baby is Downs, don’t know if I will be strong enough to terminate or be able to bring up a child with Downs either, at my grand old age of 51.
Does anyone out there have any experience of Downs, and if so can you give me some advice? I am so confused having gotten this far. The father is out of the picture, so just me and my 13 year old son now. Many thanks for taking the time to read this, take care - Linda
