I wish I had more time to write but my 3rd baby has down syndrome. It has been rough but the best thing ever in my life. I was so scared when I heard (amnio) but she is a joy to the whole family. We went through feeding tubes and open heart surgery and id do it again a million times!! Talk to your dr about amnio and know there isn't a more precious person in the world!!!
