I am 6 months pregnant and just found out that I have a medical problem that is very serious for my unborn baby. The baby basically has a 50% chance of serious physical and mental problems or death. We will not know for sure until several months after the birth. I am absolutely terrified and have been crying nonstop for the last 4 days. I was enjoying pregnancy so much and now I feel numb towards my baby, afraid to get too attached. When I look at our half-completed nursery I feel like I am going to throw up.
Fortunately my husband has been amazing through this and I am thankful to have such a strong marriage. Other than that, we have no family to support us during this time.
If you are religious, please pray for us. We need a miracle.

I’m so sorry – what a difficult situation! I think you need to focus on the positive and remember that there is still a great chance you will have a wonderful, healthy baby. Take comfort in your husband. You can work through this together. Wishing you the best – my thoughts are with you 🙂

All of my positive energy, thoughts, and prayers are being sent to you! When you feel that numbness remember this: the most healthy, beautiful children are born out of love. God gave you this child for a reason so you must remember that you are the best person to care for him or her. If you keep your spirits up and believe that your love and positivity can get you through this than everything will be okay. Keep happy in the remainder of your pregnancy and know that your happiness and joy for your child can and will prevail through this difficult time.

Okay, I will tell you as someone who has lost their baby that no matter what happens, you can make it through this. It’s hard, but you can.I know how you feel as we’re trying again and I have to go through it not knowing if I will carry my baby to term or lose in the third trimester like I did before. It’s stressfull and scary, but you have to remain as calm as possible for yourself and your baby. You need to talk to someone who is a professional NOW because that’s going to help you. For support, I highly recommend http://www.dailystrength.org/ There are many women there who are in similar situations who are more tahn willing to support you. This is scary and hard and no one is going to understand truly. I can honestly say that there are more people out there who have gone through something similar than you’d imagine.
You have not lost your baby yet and that’s wonderful. Stay as positive as you can and, again, as someone who lost her baby at 34 weeks and 2 days, I know no matter what you can make it through this. It’ll be the hardest thing you’ve ever done, but you can.
I truly hope you can make it through youir pregnancy and the following months with a healthy baby. If you need to talk, I’m here.

Oh I am so sorry that you are going through such a hard situation with your pregnancy. But the baby is hanging on. So keep positive. I was born 3 months premature, many many years ago. So miracles do happen. I am praying for a miracle for you. Best Wishes.

I am so sorry to hear that. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I have a friend going through something similar and I see on a firsthand basis how difficult and stressful it is to go through a time like this. Do your best to stay positive and take one day at a time.
Wishing you peace and comfort during this trying time.

My husband and I recently went through something very similar when we found out that our son has cystic fibrosis. It was devastating news. I hate to hear that anyone else is going through a situation like what we went through.
You will make it through and I promise you your love for that child will be so overwhelming that you will do anything to take care of them. I too was scared to plan things or think of his future but your instincts will kick in and you will find ways to fight and overcome whatever your child has.
I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers and hoping for the best for your family.
