Downs syndrome diagnosis post birth

Maggie - posted on 09/06/2015 ( no moms have responded yet )




Hey all...
We received a diagnosis 2 days after my little one was born and were completely shocked....I had had negative results in the prenatal testing. ...and our darling Oliver has no physical markers except poor tone...which we had attributed to him being 5 weeks early....the doctor mentioned it could be mosaic downs....I was wondering what our next step would we have to order a test to determine mosaic....does it matter? Do we need to be doing something now? Or do we wait and see how he develops through his milestones...I want to give him the best of everything of course. ...he is currently still hospitalized due to his O2 saturation levels...they tell me as he gets stronger those will improve....

Any comments are appreciated....not really sure what to do next
