I'm in a similar situation, except I'm already pregnant, and I have a large tumor. One doc thinks it could be cancer and wants to do a biopsy. Another doc says it doesn't look like cancer and the biopsy could endanger to my child.

I'm in a quandary as to what to do, but I'm trusting in God. My husband and I desperately want this child -- it's our first. We've prayed for a healthy baby. We keep Him first in our lives and, for that reason, believe he will keep His promise to answer our prayers, in spite of that tumor.

Faith is such an individual thing. The Bible says just a little bit of it can move mountains. I'm praying for more and more each day. And I'm slowly I'm realizing that there's really nothing I can do, but a WHOLE LOT that God can do! Each day I'm trying to put more of my trust in Him, as I picture my little one in my arms.

Now, I realize your situation is different. If I'd known this beforehand, I don't know if I would have purposely become pregnant or not. I will suggest this to you: don't make this decision on your own. Dad is an equal partner. It's only fair to include him, because this will be his child, too.

Also, you didn't mention your age, but if you're under 35, keep in mind that the condition that's preventing you from getting pregnant could improve, making it safer for you to have a child later.

God bless you -- my prayers are certainly with you.
