P & PT for a Friend

This is cross posted from my EC board

A dear friend of my SIL who I know through my SIL is having a very difficult time and needs all the P & PT she and her DH can get.

She and her DH have been trying for a baby for over a year and got pregnant the same time we did, in fact she was supposed to deliver at the same hospital and was due a month after me. at 8 or 9 weeks they lost the baby.

They got pregnant 18 weeks ago and are due in December. I just got a message from my SIL that the baby is only measuring at 15 weeks, has a TON of fluid around it's heart and lungs and has a genetic disorder and will not survive. Monday they are finding out what disorder it is. The baby is still alive, but now they are faced with the difficult decision to terminate or wait for the baby to die in the womb and deliver it.

I am so so sadden by this. Feeling my little one inside me and thinking that if I were in her place, the decision I would have to make, I can't even fathom it. So please keep her, her DH and her baby in your thoughts. I would appreciate it.

Oh that's horrible! There's no way they could operate in the womb or something and save it? Ughhhh, I am so hoping this works out somehow. How sad, I couldn't imagine. :-(

Thanks ladies, I am deeply deeply saddened by what's going on.

Adrienne - I don't know all the details, I am not sure what type of genetic disorder it is, they are going to find out the results on Monday from what my SIL said...

Leona - Thanks for sharing your experience. I hope that whatever they decide to do they find peace in their hearts....

:(

Oh my gosh - that is so awful :( I couldn't even imagine what that must be like. I hope they are able to get through this very difficult time and are able to have a healthy baby. They are in my thoughts.

I talked with my sister in law and they went in last week and found out that their little girl had passed away. She had turners syndrome, but with all the fluid around her heart and lungs it was too much.

She delivered her on Thursday night....totally breaks my heart.
