Hi, my Wife is 12 Weeks pregnant but the doc says baby is growing normally except the brain and is suggesting us to get it aborted coz maybe the baby would be mentally abnormal after birth, i really dont know what to do coz this is first pregnancy and we took opinions from 3 Docs all say the same!!!
