I am thinking of you and your little one. I hope the best for you both. I think you are very brave to want to carry to term. (Also, you should look up the song "I will carry you" by selah, but be ready for some tears.) Hoping for some good news for you

I'm so sorry to hear you are going through this. I recently found out that my baby had Edwards syndrome after a CVS and we made the heartbreaking decision to terminate the pregnancy at 15 weeks as they told us she was 'incompatible with life'. I never ever thought I would make a decision like this but for us it was the right decision as we also have a little boy to consider. I just couldn't put him through months of seeing us so upset not knowing whether his sister would survive pregnancy and then if she did, spending however long in hospital and probably never bringing her home. It is the hardest decision anyone can ever make but you have to do the right thing for you and your family and it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

I am surprised you can't get your amnio results quicker than that - when we had our cvs we got the initial results in 4 days and then the full results came 2 weeks later. I would ask them and push them to get them quicker - the worst part of the whole thing for us was the waiting and wondering.

Big hugs and feel free to pm me if you want to chat xxx

Thank you

The reason I can't have the initial results is they had problems getting fluid...they had to try twice to get as much as they got...so she didn't want to put me through a third time. She said unfortunately there wasn't enough fluid to do the "fast" results and the complete analysis

It is just an awful waiting game...it is abolsute torture

So sorry hunny, you are in my prayers. Your decision makes so much sense, I never thought of it that way, but I've never had to make such a tough life decision.

Im so sorry you have to go through this. I know a woman who is going through a similar problem. The doctor told her her last ultra sound would be dec 18th and that they didnt think the baby would survive... the baby has one working kidney which is cystic and would be mentally challenged. Well, She refused to give up hope and her most recent test , I think was the quad test.. came out good.

I hope everything works out well for you. *hugs*

hun im so sorry you are going through this i made the same decision you did in 2010 i got told at ma 19 week scan i got told my wee boy had skeletal dysplasia and asked if i wanted a termination as baby might not survive the pregnany i said no i cherished evey move that ma baby made and every thing sadly at 34.5 weeks i became ill and he was born by emergancy c section and he passed away after only 42 mins it was so hard sometimes i think was i right or wrong for me to have made the decision i made but to hold him for the time i did was worth it he even turned his head and looked at his daddy before he passed i really hope you get a better out come hun cherish every minute you have and if you do decide to do what the doctors ask there is no right or wrong decision take care xxxxxxxxx
