In brief: Your choice
I am so sorry for this problem, a failure to develop the higher mental centers of the brain.
If your philosophy is the allow pregnancy termination, then this is a wise and cheaper (safer)choice. If you are opposed to this route, then you will have to await delivery with the certain knowledge that this malformation is lethal within 1-2 days.
