Re: A few questions, please reply
I did not know my son was going to be Downs until he was born, He came 5 weeks early and he did have allot of complications at birth,They knew something was wrong when I was in labor, they put these wires up me which attached to his head so they could get a better reading on blood pressure and heart rate, they told me the babies heart is getting slower and is at risk, if you don't have the baby in 15 minutes, we will have to do a C-section, well needless to say I delivered the baby naturally. The first two days they gave hin a 40% chance of living.Frist we had a problem with his blood, it was thck like maple sryup, I an A- blood type and my husband is A+, during the pregency from blood work they had done, they knew the two were clashing against each other, they kept giving me these shots to try to balance it out but they were not working, so baby had to have a blood transfusion, he had problems breathing -so he was on oxygen, they put tubs down his nose which went to his stomach, that is how he was feed for 8 days, He was in issolation, away from the other babies because they knew with his low immune system, outside germs from other people would not be good. Once he had the blood transfusion, each day on, he made improvemnts, I must say, When it was time to come home, I was a little scared but i did okay,
I would talk to your regular OBGYN and ask him if he is comfortable handling your prenany even if the baby could be Downs, I would not recommend a birth at home type of thing from the expierence I had.
Good Luck to Youi
