Hie all mummies and mummies to be. I'm 13 weeks pregnant as part of my pre natal screening, I had the Down Syndrome screening done. I've had 5 miscarriages and one still birth at 6 and half months. After that, I struggled to conceive for 5 good years. My partner became very hostile and abusive towards me. On the 7th of Jan I found out he had a child with someone else so decided we go our separate ways, then on the 10th I went to GP with a UTI which turned out I was pregnant.
Sorry for going on and on but this is the only time I've gotten to say this to anyone coz I don't want people to judge me.
I got a call from a midwife at my local hospital to say my DS results came with a high chance of my baby being born with DS. She said it was a combination of my hormones and my age (37) that put me at a 1-95 chance.
I'm really worried because of the way she spoke. It was almost as if she is certain baby will have DS so I really have to decide if that's what I want. She was short of advising I terminate. The next test I can have to know for certain has a risk of miscarriage. That's a no no considering my history. The other non evasive one can only be done privately and is £300. I can't afford that. I'm out of work due to this high risk pregnancy and barely managing.
I'm going through hell psychologically. I am supposed to be happy and enjoying my pregnancy but it's been such a painful journey so far. Anyone been through this DS testing.
