    Thanks all,
    i just can't stop crying, I've been waking up every few hours just crying...Im so destroyed inside and I can't help but wonder if I had a proper scan at my 16week check up this might have been uncovered earlier and we might have been able to catch it before it affected the kidneys...I actually did have one but forgot to drink water and so scan pic wasn't clear, maybe it was because at the time the fluid was low around the sac then because this affects what you can see in ultra sounds as well - OB just didnt pick it up as heartbeat was strong there was no cause for concern...I guess I can't think "what if" cos there is nothing I can do about it....I also know I can't blame anyone as this is just freak problem I think it's 1/8000 chance if it happening... I have read that if kidneys weren't damaged or only one wasn't functioning then our lil chilli would have better chances but the specialist said on a scale from 1-10, 10 being the worst both lil Chillis kidneys were at a 10 & it would mean bub would only last a few days after birth and if longer a transplant is more than likely required which would be hard as we would then need to find a matching donor which is unlikely with infants. We would then have to have ongoing dialysis, is this the type of life I want for my child? I don't think so but again I don't want to give up on my baby...I hate this so much I just want to run away....
    if we terminate I then have to go through labour and give birth which would be sooooo hard as well...I wish this had all ended when I had earlier bleeding I know that's horrible to say but it would have been less cruel on both myself and lil Chilli.
    we have our appointment today at 12 they will scan again and see if the kidneys have produced more urine in the bladder if so the kidney are functioning but they dont know how well, they will then drain and send the fresh fluid away to test to see how well they are filtering. We then wait to Monday for results...
    Dr M has stopped me taking all meds so he mustn't be hopeful either...
    All I ever wanted was a happy healthy baby that's doesn't seem too much to ask but in my books it's like I'm asking for the world....life sucks sometimes I just hope we make the right decision and can handle whatever decision we make...

    Thanks for letting me vent I'm just so sad, angry & confused...

    Kiwi

    Oh god kiwi...I have woken up with my first thought being of you and lil chilli, like I'm sure all the others here who know you. Bella and others had better words than me - that it's a decision no parent should ever have to face. Anything you decide will be met with 100% support by all here I am sure.
    Like b123 I wish I could do something to take this all away for you. Can adults give part of their kidneys to infants to find a match?
    I pray for a miracle today and in coming days, and like you said for whatever you need to do for your family, to find peace in that decision with time.
    My biggest love and support xxxxxxxxxx
    We will all be thinking of you at 12 today when you have your appointment.

    Kiwi,

    I woke up this morning just wanting to slap the universe in the face. I know it's not helpful to say but I just can't believe how unfair this is that you are faced with such a situation.

    I agree with you - you can't go over the what-ifs in your head. We know that you have already made many decisions this pregnancy that put your bub's best interests first and I know when the time comes you and your DH will continue to do so. You've faced more hurdles already than you should ever have had to and each time you fought for your lil Chilli to keep him (?) safe and had his best interests at heart like any of us would have for our bub.

    My best advice is to gather all the facts you can and please don't allow anyone to make you feel rushed into making a decision once you have all the test results back. Never feel like you shouldn't seek another opinion just because one group of doctors tell you one thing. You may not have given birth to this baby yet but he is yours and DH's child, you are his (sorry I keep writing him/he/his - just assumed - correct me if I'm wrong) parents and biggest advocates. Whatever you decide we will be here to support you and I'm sure your families and friends will also.

    Asking for a healthy baby is definitely not too much to ask and after all we go through it seems like such a small thing to ask for and expect. I'll be thinking of you today. if you feel up to it check back this afternoon following your appointment and let us know how you're going.

    Take care xx

    Kiwi,

    My pregnancy buddy. My heart aches for you and your DH. And you are the only one on this thread I have met in real life. Words cannot express how sad I am for you and how I wish there was something I could say to ease some of your pain. Please know I will appreciate every second of my journey knowing how lucky I am. I wish you strength for the days and decisions ahead.
