I am so sorry to hear your news. :( Only you can make the appropriate decision about what to do, and hopefully you have people around you to support you in any decision you make. Sending good thoughts your way.

I am so so sorry. What a horrible decision to have to make. My first child was diagnosed with a heart defect at my 18 week ultrasound, and a week or so later developed fetal hyprops, incompatible with life. I faced a similar decision. She passed away at 22 weeks, I was induced a day later and delivered her stillborn shortly after. Losing a child no matter the age is the absolute worst thing any mother could go through, and no mother should ever have to. I am crying for you. I am so sorry. I feel oddly fortunate that I didn't have to make the decision, it was made for me, although I feel weird saying that. I would like to share with you a community called the MISS Foundation. www.missfoundation.org. I found a support group in my area, and was involved in the online community as well. I was very involved for a long time, and found it extremely helpful to talk to other women and men who had walked a similar path and survived. Again, I am so so sorry .

Dang I was hoping they were wrong. I am so sorry hun. There is no real "right" choice just what is best for you and your family. None of the choices in front of you are easy nor any ones business what you decide to do. I wish I could just hug you. I hope you have many people around you full of strength and understanding that you need right now.
Ohhh, I'm so so sorry that you are faced with this experience...how painful and heartbreaking. May you find peace and comfort as you grieve the loss of your sweet baby, whatever your decision. I don't think there is a right or wrong decision. It's what feels most comfortable for you and your partner. You'll be in my thoughts. Holding you up in warm light and love
Thanks everyone! It's incredibly helpful to read these supportive notes. I want to return the grace and love, and wish you healthy pregnacies and healthy babies. Thank you.

Just read this today. Your family is in my prayers. I can't imagine the pain you're going through with this news and weight of your decision. Allow others to help you and don't be afraid to tell people that you need dinners or childcare or cleaning or whatever.
