I'm glad you have good results on your test.when i found out i was having a boy they told me their were light spots in the heart and that was conected to down syndrome back in the day,but they Quickly told me that it wasn't a deffinant dignoses. I've been worried but in the back of my mind i know this is still my child, and no i don't wish this on myself but i would love it anyway.so for anyone who gets bad news or possibly bad news just remember its still you child, and just because it has down syndrome don't me you can't love it like you would a normal baby.

Countrymom, sorry for not responding earlier - I don't post on the weekends. New York Mount Sinai Hospital recently did a study on amniocentisis, and the chances of miscarriage. Here is in excerpt from the study: "Researchers at New York’s Mount Sinai School of Medicine studied about 35,000 U.S. women who were 10-14 weeks pregnant by offering them amniocentisis. 3,000 women underwent the procedure and related miscarriages were lower than expected. 1 in about 1,600 of the pregnancies studied resulted in miscarriages by 24 weeks that were related to the amniocentisis. This is lower than the 1 in 200 results that were reported in the 1970's." You can view the full story at foxnews - this site won't allow you to post html addresses.
