So my mother's intuition has been fairly strongly suggesting that *something* is off this whole pregnancy (nearly 23 weeks)...about three weeks ago I had a dream that it was a boy (before we had the ultrasound showing that it is a boy) and that he had Down Syndrome. And the last couple of days I've had that same wave of feeling.
The thought of having a baby with Down Syndrome doesn't bother me at all, but it would definitely change the choices that I'm considering for work after the baby is born. I'm currently deciding between going down to half-time working from home and going back to the office with DH staying home full time...if baby boy has Down Syndrome I'll definitely be a full time SAHM instead of working at all, at least for the first few years.
What I'm wondering is this: has anyone else ever had a stong intuititive sense about anything like this and been right? I won't be getting an amnio or anything else like that to find out for sure before the birth. Also, does anyone else have a child with Down Syndrome who is an attachment parent, and what is that like?
I feel weird really thinking about this, but something in me is driving me to find information...just like I was driven to seek out information about attachment parenting before my high needs/high energy DD was born (she definitely prepared me for her personality while still in the womb!). I trust my gut as often as I can, and it doesn't usually steer me wrong. Any one else in the same boat?
