Pregnancy Pregnancy

Second Opinion Update

Just an update on everything- The results are still the same. Our baby's heartbeat is beating and it is still VERY much alive. We want to meet this little one and then be able to say goodbye when it is time. I will NOT be terminating. We know in our hearts that this is what we need to do. I know my baby will pass away but until then, we will cherish every moment of pregnancy and meeting our baby while we can. We hope that by seeing our story about Anencephaly that can educate everyone that has never heard of a such thing. There is a chance our baby can live but we will have to prepare with time. You can see the damage on the head in some pictures. I still love my baby! I will cherish every moment!

I know it is a sad situation but I am so happy you are letting the baby decide and I hope you get a little time with the baby.

 I agree 100%, closure when baby decides is something everyone needs. Remember, everything happens for a reason.

This!  I admire your strength...and now you can use your story to educate and as a testimony to other families who are going through the same thing or something similar.

Lots of good thoughts for you and your family. Here's a blog of a girl I used to talk to on another forum. We were in the same due date group (April 2012).
