Please delete the name of your hospital. This is the internet…. and a controversial topic.

DiamondnLovey:  I’m so sorry your are going through this.  XOXO

But yes I agree with the PP, delete any indentifying info.  There are a lot of nutters out there and they can access this site like anyone else.

Suffer if it has down syndrome…wow.  I know this is controversial though, so I’ll stop there…but wow.

Edit: I apologize, I understand how hard of a decision it is, and just because we don’t share the same views on this topic, I shouldn’t judge you.  My apologies.  I’m sorry you’re going through this.

Agreed about deleting the details.. but downs, in my opinion, is not strong enough alone.  If there are other severe health concerns I could see that.  You did mention possible kidney issues and stomach development, how severe are those?  It is completely possible to have a happy child with downs, but piling on many other serious health complications may give reason to discuss your options with your doctor.

Guys, it sounds like there’s more than just downs. It’s a hard decision either way. She doesn’t need judgement right now.

DiamondnLovey:  I am sorry you’re going through a tough time, I’m also having a pregnancy full of bad news and I know how difficult it is to find joy when everything seems to be negative. However, I just wanted to point out that having a child with Down’s does not mean they will suffer in the slightest. I know several children with down syndrome and they are happy, sweet, intelligent people. If you are not equipped to love a child that is not your standard of normal, might I suggest considering adoption. There are families out there that would love a child, down syndrome or not.

DiamondnLovey:  Darling Husband and I just thankfully passed a 1 in 15 chance of trisomy 18, so I completely understand what you are feeling, the fears going through your head, the dreams cracking (though not broken yet!) and the endless loop of that one option in your head that you may have to do.   I will be thinking of you.  Take care of yourself too.    I was wondering how far along you are? Did they see this at an anatomy scan?     wish you the best xoxo

DiamondnLovey:  It is a huge and difficult decision, I hope all goes well for you.  There may be negativity, but it’s clearly not something you want to do.  It’s something you’re willing to do for the benefit of your child, which is what motherhood is all about.
