I am currently 15 weeks pregnant with my third child and living in Belgium. Over here they not only do a nuchal fold but also take and test your blood for Down's syndrome. My nuchal fold was fine but my blood has come back putting me in a "higher risk" category.
We have decided not to go with an amnio as my risk of carrying a Down's child is less than the risk of miscarriage and we don't wish to terminate whatever the outcome.
However, this is mainly for parents with children that were born with disablities, what other things should I be looking out for in future scans or during my pregnancy ie: particulalry quiet baby, small growth?
And a silly question really, did any of you have an "inkling" something was wrong? I read somewhere that sometimes havuing a lot of amniotic fluid can mean that the baby has Down's.
Please understand we are fine about this, just I suppose trying to see if there is anything else we should be aware of.
Thanks for all your help
nuchal fold, blood tests and just general support needed
