    Hi @ruby28
    Sounds like a very stressful time for you, I hope you're doing ok.
    Just wanted to let you know that I'm Mum to a very happy & healthy 5yo who has Down syndrome. If your bub does have Ds, and you'd like to have a chat about what it's really like to be a parent to a child with Ds, I'm really happy to chat. Feel free to pm me if you'd like to.

    Can I just add your testing for you, not the baby. That sounds harsh but in reality it's for how you will cope. Not the baby.

    Clearly! And I'm not coping right now, so I WILL ask questions. If they offend you, leave!

    Can I ask what the point of this comment was? Clearly she is stressed and wondering what is going to happen... Maybe just stay supportive. It's as much for her as it is for the baby, how she copes will directly affect the baby so it has everything to do with both of them. If you can't be supportive of the situation she is currently in then maybe don't say anything.

    I don't have any advice but I really hope it comes back with a better result for you.

    That's crap. Some babies with down syndrome or other chromosomal abnormalities can be seriously unwell. Knowing this early gives parents greater options, from choosing not to proceed with the pregnancy (if that is what they wish to do) to having medical care arranged ASAP after the birth.
    @ruby28, I don't have any advice, just sending you hugs. I appreciate that this is very stressful for you.

    Ruby28 you do everything you need to do, to get through this incredibly difficult time. I have been in your shoes and at times were shocked by what people said but I knew what I was doing was right for me and for my unborn child. It allowed preparation and knowledge. Judgement and ill informed statements are completely unnecessary.
