How do you prepare for an unborn baby not surviving if you've been told the baby won't live long if its born?? :-(

My baby is has fluid around its brain lungs & heart. It ia experiencing something called fetal cystic hygroma. I am 5 and a half months pregnant.Originally the pregnancy was a twin pregnancy but I never had an amniocentesis done for the other fetus. I'm trying to pre pare myself. mentally but I'm not sure one truly can. I need to be strong

*Hugs* I am so sorry that you or anyone has to go through this. I had three miscarriages before my daughter and was told I would miscarry with my daughter. Don't be afraid to hope. Know that there is nothing you can do to change what will happen - please don't psych yourself up for it. You never know. Take it as it goes. That was my entire pregnancy with my daughter - one day at a time. Love your child while you have them. I know nothing can prepare you for such a loss - I truly hope you do not have to endure that, but know that if you do you are not alone. Don't be afraid to cry, talk to someone, whatever you need.
