@OldMrsMcDonald:  Oh my gosh…I said it before in a different thread, but honestly I can’t begin to imagine how you are feeling…when you mentioned her moving it really made my heart sink.

I don’t have any first had advice, but I just wanted to tell you i’m thinking about you and your husband… I think the decisions you came to would be the exact same thing my husband and I would do.


You are a strong woman, just thought you should know.

^ Actually…I do know someone who was carrying at 5 months when she found out that the brain was growing outside of the skull….and she also terminated.  It was horrible, and she probably needs counceling and never went..I think that’s also something to gear up for, just to let go of all your emotions to someone whatever the outcome may be.

@OldMrsMcDonald:  Honey I’m so sorry 🙁  I can’t begin to imagine what you’re going through.  Trust that whatever decision you and your Darling Husband come to is the right one for you and your family.

I do remember another April 2013 mama who had been through something similar but I don’t know the specifics of her situation (and it’s totally not my place to divulge any of it anyway).  As far as I know she went on to conceive again 🙂

I’m sending positive thoughts your way!

@OldMrsMcDonald: My heart goes out to you and your husband, that is such a horrible situation. I do not have any resources or anything to offer, but I do know someone who lost her son at around 19 weeks. She got plaster imprints of his tiny hands and feet and she named him, they also held a funeral for him. The situation was obviously painful, but the prints and the closure from the funeral helped her through.

@OldMrsMcDonald:  Don’t let anyone tell you what you are doing is right or wrong. You and your Darling Husband need to do what you feel is best. I am sorry you are going through this any my heart goes out to you and your family.

My Darling Husband has a friend who he and his wife were pregnant the same time I was, in fact her due date was a month before mine.  Her little girl was born month early still born while I gave birth premature at 7 weeks a few days after she gave birth to her daughter. 

You will be in my thoughts.

I just wanted to say how insanely sad I am for you, I cannot imagine how this feels.I don’t have any stories of people who terminated late. I do have a friend from high school who had a very bad prognosis for her baby and decided to keep her anyway. But, both of them have had a very difficult life.

I think this is every pregnant mother’s worst nightmare and what we all fear. I just wanted to give you huge hugs and wish you all the luck and love in the world no matter the outcome. I don’t envy the position you are in, it has to be the most difficult thing in the world to deal with, I’m so sorry.

I am so horribly sad for you and your family and your loss. I can’t even begin to imagine what you must both be feeling.

My Grandmother lost twin boys at 20 weeks. She delivered them alone in the hospital, and called the nurse once she’d finished. She tells the story to every woman in the family as a rite-of-passage.

She’s very religious, so she firmly believes that they’re in heaven waiting to see her. I don’t think she ever saw a counselor, but it was the last 50s. I am fairly certain she talked to her priest. She went on to have two more children after that loss, and both were very healthy.
