    Down Syndrome
    no1phillygirl posted:
    I rec'd the call yest afternoon that the results were not good. They were 100% sure that it was Down Syndrome. My OB called this morning and said that he can't do the dnc since it is 13 wks and still alive. I'm waiting for the referring dr to call me. I'm hoping that they can get me in for tomorrow to get this over and done with. I just can't believe that this is happening to me.

    Thank you to all for your thoughts and prayers! I'm so glad that I had all of your support.
    I will definitely follow your posts!
