I thought I'd post a really quick update since I remember hating when people vanished and not hearing from them ever again. I left most of my DDCs because it was very hard for emotionally when we first found out about our Down syndrome diagnosis. I have ended up spending most of my time on the Down syndrome pregnancy boards because it was just easier over all.
but I did want to let everyone know that the pregnancy is going really well. Jude is doing wonderful so far: no heart problems at all, and everything is on track, etc. She's extremely wiggly and is already keeping me up at night. We're feeling really positive about her health right now.
For awhile I was very into reading about Down syndrome, memoirs, blogs, technical books, etc but lately I've felt like I just need to wait and meet her first. I want to get to know her first and her condition secondary. The whole family is super excited to meet her!
