    The baby. DH and I are on the same page on this. The baby is our child from conception, so we would not sacrifice it any more than we would sacrifice one of our children who is already born just to save ourselves.

    It must be an incredibly difficult position for anyone to be in.

    Me and DH would save the baby, but we know the pain of loosing a full term baby, we have plenty of support it would be hard for DH but to us loosing me would be easier to deal with than another child

    I'd also like to add that if it was my Daughter who was pregnant, I'd like it to be her. Definitely the mother.

    Imagine if it was your child having a baby.

    I lost my dad as a child, and the grief it causes is indescribable and never leaves, people don't realise unless they have been there. People talk about "sacrificing the babies life", well, I would never sacrifice my other children's emotional well being.

    I think that's incredibly important. My children both need their mum.

    Baby. I had a high risk pregnancy and told my dp many times in the rare event something went awfully wrong, I wanted our boy to be saved if it was one or the other. Dp would try to save me but i prob would have preferred to sign something at the hospital ( if it existed) to say baby was priority.

    Maybe my maternal instincts haven't kicked in yet, but as much as I'm dreaming about holding the baby growing inside of me right now I would choose my own life.

    Even if it meant we could never "try again" and would obviously mourn the lost child, it would be grieving for a future which won't happen. I love the idea of our baby, but I haven't met him/her yet, and for quite a while DH and I were contemplating a wonderful life together without children.

    I do, however, hope I'm never put in this hypothetical situation and I have the utmost respect for anyone who faces it - whatever their decision may be.

    Right now I'd say save me. I have three little kids who need there mother more then they'd need a sibling. What an awful thought! If I had no children and thevone in question was my first I'd say save the baby. DH would save me.
