Ally, I know a lovely lady in NZ who was in your situation 8 years ago, was a real shock to us all when she found out as she didn't find out till a few weeks after birth from memory. She was born early and weighing very little, and from memory when she was born she had feeding issues and it was discovered not long after birth that her wee girl had a few other problems associated with Tri 18, heart defects etc. She was told her wee girl wouldn't live past a year old, and that was if she even gets that far. Her wee girl had surgery on her heart, and was fed through tubes from birth practically, and needed lots of hosp trips for quite a few things. She reached 12mths old, and everyone was so estatic, she hadn't reached many of her mile stones at that stage if any at all, but she was a happy wee girl, anyways, to cut a long story short, this wee girl is one of the miracles you may hear of in your search for answers etc, she is now a happy 8 year old, she still has alot of issues, and every day her parents and family have with her is a blessing. She is still not expected to live for much longer, but this little girl has beat the odds. This family is in NZ, if you google Mollie and Trisomy18 you should find a blog type thing you can read
I wish you all the best with the rest of this pregnancy, birth and beyond, Kia Kaha
I follow a blog of a woman who carried and birthed a baby who has T13, but was incompatible.
Her blog is http://peterandcandice.blogspot.com....chive.html?m=0
Jan 2011 is when they found out.
She was born and passed away in May 2011. It was a bittersweet experience from what she shares, but from what I've read, absolutely worth it.
