My husband of 7 years and I had been trying to get pregnant for many years. When I finally saw that + on the test I was so happy I cried. It was not soon after that we started to get abnormal test results back. Finally, we had an amniocentesis done at 16 weeks…we found out that our son was “non-viable” only after our doctor dragged his feet for another 3 weeks before giving us our results.
It took us another 2 weeks of soul searching before we decided to terminate the pregnancy. I have never felt as much grief as I did knowing I would never see my son, but I am so thankful that we were able to save him the unimaginable agony he would have been in for the short time between birth and his inevitable death.
