Amnio Results! (for real this time)

12 Oct

They finally called this morning. They did not find any sings of trisomy 21 or anything else of concern and he is 100% boy!!

I was so sure that we were having a DS baby that this hasn’t sunk in completely just yet.

I would be lying if I said I wasn’t relieved. I have worked with DS children for YEARS, and (in general) they are very lovable kids. If I didn’t have so much on my plate already I would be honored to be the mommy of a Down’s Syndrome child. However, with everything else on our plates right now I honestly think I just might have lost my mind. =(

    Aww so glad you have that much less to worry about for the moment! And you’re getting past the point where any NICU time is even all that likely, wow! Congrats!

    Congratulations on your little boy!! I have been reading your blog for some time, and you are an inspiration to many! Thank you for your beautiful openness to a child with Ds, even though you will not be having one. It means so much to those of us who do have a child with Ds, that you were so open. You can not imagine the stuff we have heard over the years, when someone is expecting a child with Ds, or suspect they are. You are a breath of fresh air!!!! Congratulations again! Enjoy your little guy!

    So much to celebrate! I am so flippin happy for you!

    You do realize that you are again setting yourself up for Urban Myth status … In addition to the surprise pregnancy, you will now be referred to as the woman who was told her chances of a DS baby were very likely, and went on to have a baby without DS ;o)

    That is wonderful news for me to get at the end of a long Thanksgiving day! I am so happy for you and grateful that you have been granted a break from the Universe on this one particular thing, and I totally understand your feelings about this. I’m quite sure I would feel exactly the same way – as would most parents.

    Huge celebratory hugs to you!

    I know you are so relieved. You don’t have to explain anything. I am so happy for you, but especially for him. I HATE first trimester screenings. They put me through the same torture. I’m glad you know.

    So happy to hear that all is well. It’s ok to be relieved. Even though you would have loved a DS baby as much as any other it’s still ok to feel relieved that the baby doesn’t have DS.

    I read your blog but have never posted….just wanted to say how happy I am for your family!

    Such wonderful news! I had every confidence that regardless of the results that you would fully meet the challenge or raising a DS child; I’m so happy that this has not been added to the load you are already carrying. Sorry about the continuing false labour pains.

    That is wonderful news! I am so glad to hear it. One less thing for you to stress your poor head about right now.

    Yea, I’m so happy for you! I know that’s a big relief.
    Is your due date Nov 15? I saw it on your ticker that you have 33 days left. After a quick count on the calendar, it looks like that’s exactly how many days I have left too! Although I really think this one will be here before then.
