I'm 40 years old and pregnant with our second child. I have a high risk of having a child with Down's Syndrome (1 in 63). I've had the combination test (blood work and ultrasound of the neck) and that was not helpful, my chances went slightly higher but it was not significant. My sister has a son with Down's and I've seen how difficult it can be, and we just want to be prepared for the child if there is a problem, but won't abort.
My biggest concern is the chance of a miscarriage (1 in 200). Has anyone had experience with this, good or bad?
