Downs Syndrome

Hi everyone ...its me again. I was feeling confident and a bit better on having this baby after hearing from some of you. Again, I had drank some during this pregnancy. I just heard from a girl that because of this, my baby may be at risk for downs syndrome now???? Anyone else drink before they knew they were pregnant and have healthy babies?

That is soooo Stupid!!! Downs syndrome is caused when you conceive. it is when you have extra cromosomes in the DN mix. You are more likely to have a fetal alchohol syndrome baby then one with DS. most rik factors are age # of children and genetic history. A couple of drinks beofre knowing you are pregnant is NOT somethign to stress about. Just stay healthy now while you KNOW your pregnant go to all prenatal checkups and eat well. its the best thing you can do for your health and your babies at this point. Sorry to be rude. But it is stupid to think that you are going to have a child with genetic problems becuase of normal adult behavior. Good luck and tell whoever told you that to get their facts straight!! grrrr.. LoL

I drank a bit before I knew and I had a perfectly healthy baby boy on 1/11/06 so unless you drink lots and all thru your pregnancy your baby will be fine and as far as ds the first post was right your child won't get it from you drinking!!
