Idk if I could have went through with the pregnancy knowing that my baby would not have made it! I admire their strength! Either way, the situation is heartbreaking

I wouldn't terminate. I would hope to get to at least hold my precious baby like them.

I was actually told my son had this mid pregnancy. Well trisomy 18 via blood test. We waited 5 days for us confirmation. We decided to keep him no matter what. No matter how long. Turned out they made a mistake. Thankfully our baby doesn't have it but I would have carried him.

I could never live with myself knowing I didn't even give them a chance. I would never abort due to any reason like that. What happens, happens, but I definitely would chose to let that happen.

I would terminate. But that's my personal choice.

We had an amino and planned to terminate if there was any ds.

I didn't do the prenatal bloodwork for all those "defects". I did get ultrasounds.....a lot.....I had three kids born with "defects" and would not trade any of them for the world.

This . I'm not making my baby struggle, if I can help it. So I would abort.

Quoting brettsmomma:

I would terminate. But that's my personal choice.

I'd have terminated.  I had amnio done at 17 weeks for that express purpose.
