    can you have a DS child two time in a row

    I have a DS son who is 18 months and we just found out we are pregnent again they tell me because i my age i have a 1 in 150 chance of having another one. I just want to know does the amnio hurt and what other test is out there. I just dont want to spend the next nine months freaking out.

    I've never personally had an amnio done but have heard from others that it is more uncomfortable than painful.

    When I chose to have another child after my daughter was born I was worried about the following child having Downs too. I was told the risks do increase but not highly. Age does play a significant factor. We decided against the amnio because regardless if the baby was going to have Downs I wouldn't have decided not to have him/her. My 2nd daughter was born without Downs.

    I have friends that are my age and some younger and we are great friends. When i was in high school a girl in high school had a baby and the baby is a girl and she has down syndrome. the girl loves her daughter so much and the next child she had was a boy and he doesn't have Down syndrome.
    I have moderate mental retardation,adhd,deafness,cerebral palsy,autism. and other special needs.

    I wear glasses,hearing aids, and afo braces.

    I go to kool smiles dentist and there is a person that works there that has a child with down syndrome and the little boy has to have leg braces and wears them and i think a walker too.
