No one ever thinks that they are going to be faced with the decision of terminating a much-wanted pregnancy. My spouse and I were faced with exactly that decision. On December 1, 2008, I discovered that I was pregnant with my first child. Four months later, we went in for our ultrasound at 20 weeks and were ecstatic to discover that we were having a girl.
Unfortunately, that moment was cut short when the OB also told us that our daughter had a terminal condition, Hydrops Fetalis. We decided to have my labor induced. Full story.
