I got my amnio results.
It says my baby has downs syndrome
It also says my baby is a girl
I have question for the gender tho, I don't know why, I guess I just don't believe it.

Right now I don't know what to say or feel, so I am leaving it at this at the moment. I don't know much else as this was the rapid results.

It's my understanding that amnio results are definitely accurate for gender too, since they're based on the baby's DNA. (Please correct me if I'm wrong!)

that's what I know of to, but don't take much into my doubt right now, 7 boys AND THEN a girl? like I don't believe it. I am very happy. I want to shout from the roof!

Sounds like you're due for a girl to me! :HUG: Congratulations on team pink!

Did you want me to add you to the gender teams list, or would you rather wait for your next U/S? *I* believe that your baby's a girl but if you'd like to hold off for now that's entirely okay.

I am not sure if gender results are 100% either, but I think a girl would be so great in your house full of boys

I know its a lot to handle, but we are here for you. BIG hugs!

lurking from August! I just wanted to say congrats on your daughter and continuing your pregnancy even though your daughter has Down Syndrome! All the DS kids I have know are such sweethearts and can live a happy and healthy life! A friend of our family's recently learned her child has DS through an NT scan and she decided on termination and even though I didn't judge her it was a really tough decision to make for her family!

i don't know of anyone ever having an amnio that was wrong for gender and having seen your nub shot and hearing what your dr/techs have said, i would say 99.99999% you're having a girl. I'm sorry you got the news you weren't looking forward to, I am so so so happy for you that you're getting your little girl. I feel confident you can handle anything they tell you at this point. Big hugs!!

Congrats on your girl! I can totally understand not knowing how to feel at this point. I know it's a lot to take in. I would be going through many different emotions. We are here for you! *hugs*

Congratulations on a girl finally. God picks special mommies for people with Down syndrome and every DS child I have met has made my heart soar. Just like I was looking at Jesus.

Congrats on your very special little girl!! I totally agree that only very special wonderful Mommas are chosen to be blessed with special wonderful children. AND she has a great Dad AND 7 big brothers to dote on her too! <3 She's on lucky girl!

PS I'm almost positive that amnio's are 100% correct on gender.

You are a strong mamma. I truly believe that g-d gives is what we can handle. She will surely be the princess and lucky her has 7 big brothers to watch out for her and protect her. One lucky lady

Hugs!

Welcome to team pink! The news she has DS must be hard to take in right at the moment. I suggest meeting and talking to other mommies who have children with DS. What does your DH say? Is he being supportive?

Congrats on Team Pink!!! - amnio is definitive for gender as I understand it. I hope having an answer on the DS is helpful to you, I have known many wonderful people with DS and I know your daughter will be a blessing too (((hugs)))

Hes being supportive. He at first said I hope your happy your finally getting your girl. I took that bad , I didn't know how to handle it. He explained that despite any issues that I should be happy LOL ugh, he feels ok on it, but hes really worried on the boys. How they will react, well the older 4. We know how they are they aren't keen on change, a new baby we could deal with tanturms and issues but with this issue can they accept it? I have raised my boys well, trust me. My oldest boy on the other hand will be hard to read. We have yet to tell DH mom or dad yet. I fear his mom cus she was all for so when can we find out when to terminate. I was so pissed off, I almost left dh this weekend till baby born cus of it. we live on top of his moms place and I refused to be around her, BUT I told dh that if he tells her anything else its over till baby done and he promised he wont. so idk maybe we should tell her.

Once again, all the ladies have said everything I would have told you, probably better than I could have expressed it!!! So happy you are finally getting your little baby girl. No matter what, she will be perfect. You sound like an amazing mom and she is one lucky girl, that's for sure <3
