I'm Amy, 38 y/o and expecting our 4th baby, a little girl who happens to have Down Syndrome. I have lurked and responded to a few posts here and there. I belong to the October ddc and am due Oct 5 but due to a few high risk issues, I'll more than likely be induced in late September! Is it okay if I hang out in both ddc's?

Sure, we have several October Mamas around here! As my due date is Sept. 29th, it is entirely possible my girl will come in October anyway. Do you have a name picked out for your beautiful little girl?

Welcome to club pink! How are you doing so far? We are happy to have you and, yes, how is the name game going for you? Got one picked out yet for your little cupcake?

Welcome! I am 39 and due with baby #4 Would love to hear more about your little girl. My son (#1) was born with numerous medical issues that are similar to those of other syndromes. Do you have any clarity on what are some of your daughter's medical concerns, if any?

Thank you ladies!


Yes, we have a name picked out....Matilda Hope. Matilda was my dh's choice and I wasn't on board with it until I got her diagnosis. She is being named after Saint Matilda, patron saint of large families. When I got the news, I called my good friend and she said, "oh, it's great that she is being born into such a large, loving family!" With that, I though that, yes, Matilda should be her name. It's growing on me. Hope is for all the hope and prayers that are with this little girl. So far, my pregnancy is going just fine. I have had numerous ultrasounds and she had a fetal cardiac echo last Wednesday and that was normal. So far, so good...she looks healthy and growing just fine! Her heart was our biggest concern as that is a common issue with kiddos with Ds.

So glad her echo was normal, that was my concern for you. My son actually has a complex heart defect, I was ready to help you through that one if needed! Love her name and how you came to that decision.
