Perhaps my previous blog was misinterpreted... I did carry my second daughter full term, my beautiful Amanda Renee.
I was only wishing to convey that if I had known....or should I say, if I knew then what I do now - I would have aborted the pregnancy.
Anencephalic babies cannot survive very long, if at all, outside of the womb. That is why I urge all women who are planning a pregnancy to insure that they are getting plenty of folic acid before conception - and also have the AFP (alpha-fetoprotein) test performed within 16-18 weeks gestation, once they find that they are pregnant.
I, myself, waived the test recommendation... I was young, naive, and had a beautiful, healthy daughter already. Why would I need a test like that? What could go wrong?
Whatever it takes.
Again, I do not like the idea of abortion... but it does have its purpose - which is for every woman to decide for herself.
