    I was watching a tv show last night (ER) and they diagnosed a woman with cancer (kidney? liver? something hereditary- her mother had died of it) and she was 18w pregnant, she opted to have a one op removing the tumor and a termination at the same time so she could have chemo. During the operation they discovered that it was stage 4- 2% chance of living past a few months (long enough to gestate to viability) so she was going to die anyway. The husband couldn't bring himself to override her wishes for the termination, so she lost the baby and died anyway (guessing she died, the storyline ended there).

    Anyway my point is is if I was going to die soon I wouldn't pick me, I would pick the baby.

    This is what I'd say for myself. Though I look at Katelyn in my arms right now and think if the last thing I'd have done in this world was giving her life then so be it.

    Head says save me, heart says save the baby.

    My parents were put in this position. Mum was put into hospital at 10 weeks and didn't come out until after i was born. Everyday the doctors would come in a plead with her to abort me. They were convinced that she wouldn't make it through the pregnancy or the birth. They choose me. It was a miracle that we both survived.


    It's a no trainer for me and Dh. It would be the baby. I couldn't live with myself if a baby died due to my actions.

    My husband and I were recently faced with the possibility of a life threatening pregnancy. We both decided with 3 toddlers plus 2 older children my husband wouldn't cope alone so to save a baby we didn't know and deprive our children of a mother when they are so young wasn't an option. So at this stage in our life it would be me over a baby.

    As PP's have said- I'd choose baby, DH would choose me.
    Horrible to think about

    I'd choose baby, I hope DH would respect my wishes. He is more than capable to raise our kids, he would do a great job (and he knows I have faith in him to raise them properly).

    DP would say me.

    There were complications during the birth of my second baby, and it was strongly recommended for me to have a c-section next time, and I was told I'd risk losing my baby if I didn't.
    When I fell pregnant with Dd3 I had a different ob who discussed all the risks for me and baby associated with both options (a vb or c-section), and left it up to me to decide. We weighed up everything and ultimately DP and I made our decision based on what would be the least risk to me, but meant a greater risk to baby, given my history. Thankfully all turned out ok, and I don't like to think about it now DD3 is here
