I may have imagined this, but wasn't there some sort of definitive pre-natal Down testing that they invented a couple of years ago? [ Reply | More ]

There has been definitive prenatal testing for years--amnio and cvs. You're thinking of new NIPT tests--they are still screening tests, but very accurate--over 99% [ Reply | More ]

OMG, the tests are NOT WRONG. There are screening tests, which give odds--like 1 in 200 your baby will have DS, based on combo of factors. If odds are high, they refer you to diagnostic tests, which are over 99% accurate. There are also new non-invasive maternal blood tests, which are screening tests, but are 99.1% accurate.

The screens are not 100 percent. So, depending on what test she had, it may have been missed. Also, I am a genetic counselor, and I have plenty of patients tell me that they would not terminate.do Down syndrome. It is the reason they don't do the amino. [ Reply | More ]

OP: I was actually thinking she just might, and it could be super enlightening to see it from her perspective without her yelling in my face. Basically she thinks the world should do whatever she wants-we had a small party for our parents and she showed up and didn't lift a single finger to help setup or cleanup and spent the entire time talking to a neighbor that showed up completely uninvited. I know that sounds like a lame complaint. She is mid 20s and no care in the world and it's very obvious she doesn't know the definition of the word "responsibility." Constantly calls me mean and uptight (I am a little particular and I am working on that!) and says I use DD for attention (I am a lot Of things but that is not one of them) and like being a mom "only when it's convenient" (which shows how little she knows-how convenient are kids, like ever?) anyways I could literally go on for hours. It Boils down to being completely different peoe at totally different stages of life. Maybe one day we will be friends again. [ Reply | More ]
