I'm so sorry you're going through this!  I have no idea what I'd do in your situation.  It's so unfair :(

I don't think I would be able to terminate. Miracles do happen every day, even when there's so much going against them. 

My heart absolutely aches for you and I am so, so sorry. I know there is nothing we can do/say to make it better, but whatever decision you make, just know that you are not alone!

Why did they never attempt transfusion?  I personally would wait it out until it became a health risk to myself.  :(

Agreed. They can do surgeries in utero now. Maybe that's an option?
