Re: pregnancy after downs baby

after my son was born i was told not to have any more kids. but i got pregnant when he was 2 (unplanned). the doctor did afp and it was normal i chose not to have amnio i want through that the first time no thank you. any way my daughter was born perfectly fine. other that her mean streak and stubbornness she is "normal". in fact all three of my other children are. they say you are higher risk and i guess that is true but i've only heard of one person actually having a second child with downs and hers are translocation (hereditary). good luck with a second pregnancy and dont stress it's not good for the baby. im sure what ever decision you make will be the right one for you and your family.
