Thanks for all the comments

We talked about it in some detail and thought about all your comments and K and I decided not to do the amnio.  He is better at numbers than me. He calculated (in about 10 seconds in his head) that our stats still give us less than 1% chance of having a downs baby.  So we are going with our guts and faith that our little one is just fine.  And since there is no chance that I would terminate the pregnancy even if the amnio results said for sure the baby would have special needs we figured what is the point.  I don't want to risk a miscarriage just to know.  And as I said, K's family has already had a downs person and they know what it is like.  We could manage if needed.  The family would be there for help and advice.  But given the odds we feel like the chances are low.  Maybe not as low as everyone else in my age group, but low none the less.  

I'm in a much better place today.  Back to thinking of names and being happy about the flutters.  You guys are the best.  Thank you thank you.

i'm jealous of your flutters- i'm not feeling anything :(

and i just know your baby is going to be perfect- when is your big u/s?

Sue said...

Good decision! I am sure your baby will be just fine. So stop worrying and enjoy your pregnancy. when is the big u/s? are you going to find out the gender?

Michelle said...

Good for you!

That is so cool that you are feeling the flutters!

I am also sure that your baby will be fine but any concerns regarding trisomy 18 can also be addressed during the ultrasound. Trisomy 18 manifests with heart, kidney and other physical defects. Unfortunately 95% of children with Trisomy 18 die in utero and then 50% of those who are born alive die within the first two months of life. I am sure that if your child has trisomy 18 it will show up on the anatomy ultrasound.
Trisomy 18 is very different from downs syndrome. I am certainly not advocating that you do anything different, but you do need to be informed that trisomy 18 is usually very serious.

so glad to hear this! :)

Sounds like a good choice to me. I know K.aiser does extra u/s if your risk of Downs or other abnormalities comes back higher. Will your Dr be doing those extra u/s or has he not mentioned it yet? Just wondering because they can be very helpful.

Sending your little one lots of healthy thoughts.

Good for you! I think you made the right decision. :)
