It's been so hard to hear news like this. I was at the doctors office debating with my husband over the fact of termination or not. Since I'm so late in my pregnancy they needed to know an answer so quickly my first reaction was to terminate considering all of the worst case scenarios. As you can imagine what a battle it was to come to a common ground In matter of hours on basically the most hardest decision of my life. It was so hard for me to think of anything positive because I was so forced to look at the worst because the time of termination was coming the next day. After a long sleepless night of debating and putting all our options on the table I came to realize that i shouldn't terminate our baby. I believe now that if i would have, it would be more haunting/doubts effects on myself always questioning my decision. Plus my marriage would have totally fallen apart. At this point I have to stay positive and pray for the best for our little one. I'm coming more and more confident that my decision is the best because I'm going to be giving her a chance to live a great life.
