At our ultrasound they said that they could see the babys skin is a little thicker on her neck than it should be. We have already had the triple screening test and our results were really low chance anything was wrong with the baby. We have decided not to to the amnio because of the risk to the baby. The genetic counseler said our risk of having a baby with Downs is still really low despite the untrasound results but it was still scary to hear. Has anyone else been through this???Answer Question

I second what my friend above said. It could be a mistake, most likely it is. Even if it is not, having a child with special needs is not a tragedy. It does make life more complex but it also opens your world up to a whole group of amazing people and teaches you more about love and acceptance than anything you can ever experience.
My girls have developmental delays. Because of them I have learned to appreciate every step of development, every achievement. I am a better mom to my older child who is "normal".
