In brief: MaterniT21.

Your question was cut-off - but, if i understand correctly, you are concerned about the risk of Down syndrome in your current fetus because of your prior infant with down.
My answer is easy: take folate, (folic acid) get genetic counseling and consider the maternit21 non-invasive test by sequenom (or others similar to it now commercially available) to determine this fetus' risk for down syndrome. Best of luck!

In brief: ?????

What is the ? , but obviously you will get testing and an amiocentesis if indicated and you want it, if you were my pt not knowing all your details i would immediately refer you to the perinatolgist that I use so you can be counseled and worked up to make sure you unborn fetus is normal ( or not), so you can procede accordingly.
