    conjoined twins

    I am 23yrs old and 16weeks into my first pregnancy.
    At 11weeks my husband and i were told we are having twins but that they are conjoined fron the chest to about their hips. They share one (very weak) heart. The doctor has told us they don't have and chance for servival.
    At our last check up they think they saw that it is boys.
    They wanted me to terminate them but there is NO way i could ever do that to my little guys. I have seen them kicking and moving all over in there. I'm told they could die at any time. There is a VERY small chance they will live till birth but they would most likely pass within a couple of hours
    I have been very sick for the last three months...
    I feel really alone in this all, I'm told this happens 1 in 200,000 pregnancys.
    Has anyone gone through this before?
