Had our 20 week scan Monday and was referred to London for more scans with Edwards syndrome. My little baby boy is a wriggly active baby and I feel him move quite often but yet he really isn’t very well. His brain and heart are severely defective and they say his heart could just stop any minute. We have had the agonising decision as to whether to end our pregnancy. This is our third pregnancy but yet still not baby. 1st was ectopic and 2nd was a missed miscarriage at 11 weeks. Now at 20 weeks we have to say goodbye. I’m broken inside and feel my world is ending.
Has anyone else been here and had to make the same awful decision? Either way we are without our baby. The choices as to how and where to have the baby is also agonising. Surely in this world there must be a kinder more sensitive way for women like me to bring their lost little one to their arms.
I’m just sick with emotion and torment and utterly heartbroken
