Trisomy 21: Trisomy 21 or Down's Syndrome is the concern for your girlfriend and you. The MD wants to get a sample of the chorion(pregnancy membrane) which has the genetic composition of the fetus and can then give you an accurate answer about the status of the baby. There may be some challenges ahead and decisions to make if this is confirmed.
