We made a decision concering the twins..(PIOG)

At this point I think everyone knows we are pregnant and we are expecting twins.  They are girls.  However Scarlett (Twin A) has some very serious birth defects and the doctors don't expect her to live for more then an hour after birth. 

We (well I) have decided not to terminate Scarlett.  If we go with the procedure there is a 20% of losing the whole pregnancy.  If we do nothing there is a 30% chance of losing the whole pregnancy.  That coupled with other factors (emotional well being and such) I think is is best not to terminate. While Bryan doesn't agree he understands and said he will be supportive
 
Unfortunately becuase of the nature of the defects corrective surgery seems to be impossible.  Her sister, Autumn seems to be doing fine. And barring no other problems we expect to take Autumn home.
 
Becuase of the kind of twins they are I will have to be hospitlized the 2nd week in August until they are delivered so they can be monitored for cord entanglement.
 
I just wanted to let everyone know where things stood.  We will keep you guys updated :-)

and I will try not to depress you guys with anymore of my post....but thank you all for being so supportive
