It's horrible to find out baby has a problem but they are still your baby at 20 weeks baby is big and in just a few weeks could survive outside by themselves I personally would continue my pregnancy and give my baby every chance they deserve but it's your body and it's really up to you

Thank you everyone for your support and advice. Is the little girl doing ok after all those surgeries?

Yes. She is a lively 5 year old.
She will eventually have to have open heart surgery to replace her valve completely. But since they do not grow she will need to wait as long as possible. So far the last ballooning of the valve has upheld.
We take it one day at a time. When that day comes we will deal with it then. But until then we enjoy the blessing we have been giving :)

Hey... Just letting you know that my daughter has been diagnosed with Turner Syndrome and is showing signs of congestive heart failure due to an undetermined heart defect. We have decided to allow God to do His will. I, personally, could not stand the thought of wondering "what if". It would get the best of me. Praying for you and your precious little one! Oh, I am 19 weeks, 4 days.

If you dont mind me asking how do they know if your baby has a problem with their heart? Was the heartbeat irregular or was their testing performed to check? I will say a prayer for you and your family!

Just so you know I was diagnosed with something sorta like that. An after 8 regular an 4 open  heart surgeries I'm still here I now have a pacer an although it is really annoying to keep having to go to  the hospital it's worth it I wasn't supposed to make it but I did an I wasn't supposed to be able to have kids but I have a perfectly fine 2 yr old girl an twins on the way! Life will always find a way! I think you should hang in there an if your bf lives you he should understand(:
