So I have a 4 y/o DD and one on the way. I'm a planned c section so I told Dh that god forbid something happen to me during my c section I want to do a power of attorney paper so he makes any and all decisions. I mean I know its a routine c section but stuff happens you don't plan for... so I was telling my cousin this and she said what if something happens and a decision needs to be made whether to save you or the baby (only one of us can survive this hypothetical) so ladies which would you want. Save you or the baby?

*eta since everyone is saying baby I wanted to ask (I swear not judging just interested) knowing that you have other children that are still young do you feel uncomfortable at all knowing you're leaving that child/Ren motherless?

myself. I have two kids already that need me, saving baby would mean three children with no mommy. There is no way I could leave my kids.

Too many variables such as quality of life, life expectancy, and the fact I have 2 children at home, making one an orphan of sorts. Though I'm confident SO's family would take him in. I don't know. I'd feel terrible, but my kids need me... :/

I would give my life for any one of my children, including the unborn or the just born.
