Re: pregnancy after downs baby

hello, well thats strange that they said you have a higher chance. My son is 2 and he was born with down syndrome. His was trisonomy 21 also. We took him to a genetics doctor and we were tested for the gene. the doctor said since it was trisonomy 21 that it was just the chromosome separating 1 too many times and it had nothing to do with either of us. and we had the same chances as everyone else of having a child without downsyndrome. With my pregnancy i did notice that something wasnt right and he barely moved but my test all came back negative. I think your gonna be just fine. everyone feels the same way as you, cause you have been through alot im sure with your first child.
