Hi, I'm new to this site, I came across it while googling pregnancy information. I just found I was pregnant four days ago and I have no idea what to do.
I'm 24 and my best friends are telling me to "go with my instincts" and my wonderful boyfriend says he would completely support either decision. Which I could have killed him for. It's half his even if its burrowed in me! How do I find out what he really wants?
I want to talk to my mother about this, but she is battling cancer. I moved home to be her primary care-giver several months ago. I fear that a pregnancy would take my attention away from her. On the other hand, this will be her only opportunity to have a grandchild.
On top of that, I was a 1/2 pack a day smoker, up until four days ago. I am afraid that smoking those 2 weeks between conception and testing will really harm the baby.
But is the fact that I won't even look at cigarettes, coffee or summer ale (my favorite things!!!!) since my 5 pregnancy tests a sign that I have some maternal instincts brewing? I even bought folic acid!
If there are any girls out there with some good advice to give, maybe if you went through something similar when you found out you were unexpectedly pregnant, I would love to hear it. Anybody with anything at all, please (
Well I was set to go back to school to start some post graduate studie. I'm 21 years old and my SO is 28. My SO and I were in the beginning stages of planning our wedding and we had a couple of expensive trips booked....and then! lol Miss. Surprise came along (If birth control is 99.7% effective she was the 0.3%)
At first I was shocked. Then scared, then angry, then happy....then utterly confused. I didn't know HOW to feel. What was supposed to feel like a blessing suddenly put a huge dent in alot of my life planning. But at my age and stage of life I absolutely could not justify abortion, although aside from that I was beginning to get excited.
Now i'm 19 weeks pregnant with our little girl and i'm telling you this has changed me in ways I didn't think pregnancy could. It has been utterly challenging but I've never felt such love and devotion and i haven't even met her yet.
Also I smoked until I was about....10 weeks pregnant or 11 weeks i'm not sure. Either way the baby is FINE, incase you were concerned about that.
No one can tell you whats best for you just make sure you think it through and discuss it with those around you. I'm sure despite the fact that your mother is suffering through a terrible ordeal she would be more then willing to offer an ear and some helpfl advice.
