chances of another downs syndrome pregnancy

Hi, we treminated a pregnancy last year at 19 weeks due to Downs syndrome. I have now found that I am 6 weeks pregnant and i am very scared its going to happen again. Should we have the nuchal screening combined iwth bloods that will give us a high or low risk factor or go striaght for the cvs test?

Re: chances of another downs syndrome pregnancy

Hi, I do not know what the percentage of it happening again are but I know a couple in our down syndrome support group that just had their second down syndrome child.

The other thing is that a family friend had the testing done and they told her it was positive for Downs, she decided to not terminate and in the end the child was born without Down Syndrome. These tests are not always correct.

The odds of having another pregnancy with DS are about 1 percent.

Re: chances of another downs syndrome pregnancy

I don't know the name of the test but I have had it done and no it doesn't hurt and My middle child has down sydrome and my last child doesn't so more than likely you won't have a second down sydrome unless something is wrong. doctors generally won't tell you but std's have a great impact on having a child with down sydrome and other health problems.
