Big hugs to you! It's a fluke that I ran across your post, but I have a baby with Down syndrome and I know your fear! I didn't have any prenatal scares with our little guy, but he did have to have heart surgery at 5 mos., so I understand your heavy heart. I just want to encourage you from the Down syndrome angle that it is going to be ok! If your LO has Ds, the worst part is getting the diagnosis. From there, it is only easier and easier until one day, you will be so delighted with your child you will wonder what all the fuss was about! I promise. :)
I highly recommend that you head over to babycenter.com and click on communities. Then do a search for Down syndrome. You will find a very active board for Ds pregnancy, and Ds, as well as one for heart issues.
Hugs to you! You can do this!
