I must say i am furious. I talked to my cousin yesterday. She is a 39wks pregnant and just had a second ultrasound. She has extra fluids and the baby has something called duodenal atresia. They told her yesterday that she will have to deliver via csection and that the baby will have to spend time in nicu. But i was reading about it. And it says it is commonly found in babys born with Down Syndrome. My cousin still has no clue if the baby is going to be born with downs. The stupid doctors are not telling her anything. I know no matter what the baby is going to be loved and cared for. But my poor cousin is being blindsided because the doctor are not wanting to tell her a thing it seems like. I thunk its bullshit that she is just know finding this out. And if i lived in Michigan i would be there for her at every appointment. This is her first child and from what she has said when she asks a question about her pregnancy they treat her like she is stupid and talks down to her or they won't answer the question at all and don't return calls. So please pray that she and the baby will be ok during and after delivery. And pray that the baby will be ok during the surgery he has to have after birth.

I had a Dr do this to me when I was pregnant with ds, they called all frantic about dd and would tell me why. Dh and mil went off on them for causing me so much stress.
