    sister baby was just diagnosed with downs

    she is only at 5 months. Yes, I will encourge her but she has to be ready for that kind of stuff. She is getting closer but not quite there yet.

    My sister and baby ok. They told her to followup with her doctor today. They did find a funny discharge and took a sample and they are going to test it and let her know. Thank you all for your prayers. I will try and keep you all posted on how they are doing. ps I have spoke of all of you to hear and how supportive you all have been for me. Thank you so much all of my new special friends.

    I am now really concered with my sister. I spent most of my time with her yesterday. She said that he water broke on Thursday (Thanksgiving) and she has had some bad cramping.. Shouldnt she go see the doctor? She said it was nothing to worry about because she has not spotted at all. What should I do? This is not like her, she usually worries about everything Now her attidute is that everything is fine and I feel it is not. Please help me help her. G

    blood in urine

    hello, I have been having frequent urine infections and I have always had blood in the urine also. I do not have the normal symptom. I never know when I have the infections unless I go in to the doctor with some other problem and I would ask if I could be checked and I would always have one. I have had so many in the last year that they told me I needed to go see a urologist. I have gone and they said that I needed to have a catscan to see if I had bladder cancer. I do not have bladder cancer. I then just had a procedure done where they put a camera into the bladder and look around and that also come out fine. I still have blood in the urine and the urologist said that it is no big deal. I am not happy with his not to worry attidude. Am I over reacting? G

    Thank you everyone that has replied. I will always stand by her no matter what she chooses. I am happy to say that I spoke with her yesterday she seemed more like herself. We did not bring up the baby at all. It seems that she is going to give it to God to decide what will happen. I am happy with that choice. I will do everything I can to help her in anyway that I can and I will be looking for all the help I can for her and the baby. I was told that if they can not afford the treatment that the baby will need that she could go to her school district and get state help. Is this true? I want to make sure she gets the best help that we can get for her and the baby. If anyone has any suggestion it would be very helpful. We live in the Seattle area. G
  8. Hello, I am new here and I have lost of questions about downs. My sister is 36 and is 5 months pregnant. Her screening test came back positive for downs. Since then she has had her amnio done and she just heard that the baby has downs. Could this be wrong? She is so confused with her feeling on how to deal with the news. She has totally withdrawn herself from everyone and wants to be left alone. Is this normal? I am her older sister but also her best friend. This is so hard on me as well. She said that she wants to hear something positive from someone. What can I tell her that will help her feel better? She said that she feels so selfish because of the way she is feeling. She told me that she didn't think that she could mentally care for this baby but as soon as she thinks that she needs to terminate the pregnancy she feels the baby kick her and then she beats up on herself. I am worried that this is going to make her depressed so bad that she wont be able to snap out of. Please any help anything that a could give her to help her. G
