It is very unlikely that two people with Down Syndrome are able to conceive. Most males with Down Syndrome are infertile, with only 3 recorded instances of a down syndrome f…ather being able to conceive. Most females with Down Syndrome have both conception and birthing problems, leading to a high miscarriage rates for those who are able to conceive. Females with down syndrome have much lower fertility rates.
She was a 36DD pregnant, a 36 E nursing, and was a 36C like her mom pre pregnancy.
Her friends tell me they are 34-29-44.Sounds about right.
Yes, however there are risks involved. First of all, most males with Down's Syndrome tend to be infertile, or have a sperm-count so low they cannot effectively reproduce. If t…hey do manage to reproduce, there are many issues that can arise due to the production of gametes (sex cells) during meiosis. For example in males, they will produce 2 normal sperm and 2 sperm with the ability to form trisomy-21 (the cause of Down's Syndrome). However, two normal gametes must meet in order for a healthy child to be produced, and it only takes one abnormal gamete to create an embryo with trisomy-21 - Down's Syndrome. Furthermore, if two abnormal gametes fuse, the result is an embryo with 48 chromosomes, which causes spontaneous abortion. Individuals with Down's Syndrome are usually counselled to utilize contraceptive methods, or are simply not taught how to procreate. However, if two individuals with Down's Syndrome wish to have a child, special genetic and life counselling is necessary in order to reduce costs and increase quality of life. Yes, but because of the abnormality also associated with the XY chromosome, they can only reproduce about 50% of the time, with the chance of a normal 46-diploid child being much lower.

No. All 19 of Michelle Duggar's children are perfectly healthy, without any lasting medical conditions. Even Josie, who was born 3 and a half months premature, is thriving and… has no medical problems (aside from her lactose intolerance.)
Down Syndrome is present at birth, since it is the result of a genetic condition. It is merely a matter of your doctors recognizing it. In some children it is harder to recogn…ize than in others.. Ask you doctor if you think it might be present.
Unless she has translocation (inherited) Down syndrome than No, she more than likely Won't.
There is no way, it is a "mistake" in the genetic make-up of the child. but really there is no reason to avoid it.
more likely than a "regular" person because its already in thier blood
Down syndrome is not technically inherited. It is a genetic oops caused by an egg or a sperm having two 21st chromosomes, each egg/sperm is only supposed to have 1 copy of eac…h chromosome so that when the two combine the child gets two of each chromosome.
double d and all natural
Well, first, if your already pregnant, you can get a test and they will be able to tell you if you have a child with Down Syndrome or not. But, if you just gave birth to the b…aby, the doctors would do some tests on the baby that could take several tests, but, you could tell just by looking at your child because people with Down Syndrome have a deformed face. But, their are several other disabilities that involve chromosomes that deform the face, so that's why the doctors do the testing to make sure.
when the baby has no crease between the nose and mouth
No they have a specific gene that gives them immunity to this. It is now being reasearched also Asians have a very low rate of this occurence.
