    no i wouldn't terminate.

    if i want to have more children i will need to have genetic testing done as both of my son's have autism. but even if it came back that i did have marker genes for it or DH did, i don't think it would change our decision to have another child. our boys are wonderful.

    With my 1st pregnancy I would have said yes I'd terminate if bub had DS or something similar.

    Since having my gorgeous daughter and losing a bub, I wouldn't and I'm not even sure I'll have the tests done next time around.

    I don't judge either way though, that's just my thoughts

    I had a NT scan done, at first I bawled my eyes out not wanting to do it afraid of what it would reveal. But then I remembered my cousin this last Christmas, she had to give birth to a 6month baby due to chromosone problem the organs had developed outside the stomach. I knew that would be worse to handle. if I had gotten a high risk I wouldve had further testing before I made any decision, but I think we would have terminated if there was any big life threatening problems, it's worse to let the bub suffer in pain but I would never be happy with the decision or forget. 4 years ago I had a very early MC, days after a positive reading I Mc but I still think about it.

    I lost my 18 mth old little boy just over a year ago. He was born with a genetic disease which didn't present till he was 15 mths old. There was no testing and he showed no symptoms till then. Now knowing we carry these mutations , I am having a CVS on the twins I'm carrying. If they come back to carry the same we would abort. I couldn't put another baby thru what my little man went thru. I don't think I would survive that pain again either.

    FYI - the disease he had is fatal for children, there is no cure and most kids don't see past 3 yrs of age

    I don't think I would continue with a pregnancy if there was something wrong. I say this but depending on circumstances this could change as this kind of decision would be the hardest of my life.

    It would be a very hard decision to make.

    Ds has a hormone deficiency and non of the test's that i had when pregnant told us that he had it and since ds's needs are so high i think if i were to get pregnant again and that baby had a disability i think i would be leaning towards the yes i would terminate.
    But not all conditions/disabilities show up on the scans and tests so that's how it is very hard to decide.

    Massive hugs to all if you who had to make a tough decision.

    Good luck with your CVS, I pray they'll be A-okay.

    My NT results are back on Thursday, I feel sick thinking about them - but i know I'd have to interrupt my pregnancy if anything were wrong. I feel so sad even thinking in, little own writing it down

    Im undecided.

    I too didnt get my early scan because i didnt want to know. I feared I would terminate if something was a miss and I also didnt want to be faced with that decision.

    After 3 years of TTC'ing i had decided I would love what ever baby I was gifted with, weather it be downs or deformed etc she was entrusted to me and I would love and care for her one way or another.

    DD was (is) my 1st child, and now that I actually have an idea of what is involved in parenting and caring for a normal healthy child, and also witnessing what is involved in caring for a downs child (via a friend) I think I would make a different decision next time round.
