I hope it's okay that I post here as I don't know if my son is SN or not. Here's some background: I had a lot of issues while pregnant. The most pressing ones were a very high chance of Down Syndrome (1/28) because of a high level of free-beta HCG at my quad test. I ended up having an amnio and DS was ruled out. Then LO became IUGR. He was born at 37 weeks at 4lbs, 15 oz. He did not need NICU time.
He always had some issues gaining weight and he had a few curious features - primarily syndactyly of the second and third toes and just a general different look than other babies. At 4 months, our pedi suggested we get a microarray and have a genetic consultation. The microarray came back normal. When we went to the geneticist, he took a look at him and basically told us that nothing jumped out to him and that he didn't even know what he'd test him for.
So, now LO is almost 12 months and even though we got the "all clear" from the doctors, I cannot get it out of the back of my mind that there is something wrong and it hasn't presented itself yet. (I have anxiety issues, so my intuition is not exactly trustworthy.) But I scrutinize all of his milestones. He's meeting them in a normal time period, but on the late side of normal.
So I guess my question for you ladies is how much stock can I put in my geneticist appointment? Have any of you gone through this and they thought things were fine and it turned out that there was some sort of genetic issue?
I normally post on my BMB but not a lot of people there have gone through something like this.
