So I just read this, because your profile was featured, and girl my heart breaks for you. But you did what was best. Had that little sweetheart been born with Down's not only would he have a completely abnormal life, but the stress and hardships it would put on both himself and you are tremendous.
Don't think for a minute that what you did was wrong. He felt no pain and he is an angel now.
Bless you girl, and good luck with your twins!

You are such a strong person. I cried harder than I have cried in a long time from reading this. I also had a d & c and I know how hard it is. The littlest things bring back memories I try to hide in the back of my head. I just know when the sunshine is hitting my back, my baby is the warmth from it, shining down from the heavens on me <3

I don't check this thread very often ladies because it always makes me cry reading all of your responses.. But thankyou to you all for your kind words.. I'm always so surprised that so many people think we made the right decision or at least don't judge us for the one we made..
At the moment we have been told the twins are also high risk for down syndrome.. Though nothing as bad as little bean.. Our risk is 1/147.. So we are just trying to decide if we will have an amnio.. The dr said the babies look great though they are kicking and moving around heaps I can already feel them! So eitherway I know we will be okay.. It's just so horrible that we are put into this situation again.. But I do know we will get through it together..

I just have to say that you are a very strong woman. Not many women can say they would have made the same decision for selfish reasons. I feel for you!! Just think, even though your husband wanted a boy more than anything, now your son in heaven has given you 2 more very precious sons. It's a sign from above that you made the right choice. And even though it will be the hardest thing you had to do at the time, it was right. Hope all is well with your twins. And I'm due the day before you. I find out in a few days what I'm having. :)

That story put tears in my eyes, my prayers go out to you and your family. I wouldn't know what i would do if i was in that situation, your a very strong woman and i admire you for that. Keep your head up because in my opinion you made the right decision i wouldn't want my little angel to go through that pain and suffering.
