I had my first at 20....Then Kourtney came along when I was 27...there is 7 years there....but..I am left handed...and have freckles...but no red hair....LOL And there was a full moon the night she as born. Don't know about the night of conception. Obviously I was not looking at the moon ...lol
Still would not trade any of it for any amount of money in the world.
Do they truly use our tax dollars to study this mess WOW !!
I thought most parents were in favour of DS research. Knowing where it comes from could help understand what it really is. At the moment, all we really know are it's effects. Hey, we don't even know why there is such a range of effects yet. -Jeff
I was 17 when I got pregnant with Ali 18 when she was born. I was 18 when I got the positive pregnancy test for her sister (Ali was 3 months old). I was 19 when Sadi was born, Ali was 10 months and 6 days old. (Close enough! Lol) I am left handed. They were both born in winter, conceived under new moons. And my half sister has red hair and freckles, Ali's sperm donor has freckles too. Lol.

I have to disagree with this one. My kids are Elle, 6, James, 4 and Amanda (my Peanut with DS) is 2.5..she and James are 21 mos apart...I was 25 when I got pregnant with Peanut...no history of anything on the family either.....Now with number 4 impendings arrival, my stats have gone down again (not that it matters)...even though I'm 28 now. I have read numbers showing that younger women and women who are having more kids are the ones having increased chances of a kiddo with DS....A beleive the number was like 80% of DS are born to moms less then 35 years old. Someone should correlate all the studies and see what numbers they come up with. In reading these studies one should also take into account the type of DS, Isodicentric Translocation that Amanda has, is very rare and they don't now what causes this type of DS< whereas translocation or mosaic can be more traceble. Just thought I would add my two cents. Robin
