Terrible

We received a New Year's card in the mail today from an old friend. On the back of the card was a note telling me that a mutual acquaintance and his wife are expecting their sixth baby. I know that this couple are around Michae's and my ages. Know what my first thought was at this news? "Hmmm, I wonder if they'll have a baby with Ds."

I guess my thinking has been skewed a bit :(

I think the same thing about every pg woman I see. Not necessarily "will the baby have Ds", but "will her baby have something?" Because once its happened to you, you know it can happen to anyone. And having a child w/ Ds has made more aware of all the genetic syndromes and health complications that are out there. It takes away your sense of security. At least for me it did.

I do the same thing, too. All the time.
