My name is Ashley 20 years old. I havent been with my partner long and currently 6weeks pregnant (not confirmed by doctor)
I have a blood condition called Factor V Liden which can cause complications throughout pregnancy. 3years ago i had a stillborn and ever since i have longed for another baby not to replace the son i lost just to feel normal again. When i lost Joelson i lost myself'i changed my views of life changed and now i have been blessed with another chance after being told i possibly would not be able to carry again. Both me and my partner have agreed to an abortion. Having an abortion is it selfish? I am really confused and could do with some girly support:)
I have never posted on a forum before but decided you'd be the first since I've been on the web for hours reading people's considerations in this matter. I am 22 years old and 5 weeks pregnant with my husband of 6 months who's been in my life 5.5 years. All we wanted was a baby and for awhile we tied but decided financially we can barely keep us afloat as I'm the only one working right now and my husband hasn't been able to get a source of income since his layoff two years ago (not even unemployment!) the moment we stopped trying and practiced safe sex, it happened (of coarse).
I longed for a baby horribly and now that I could have this, I have considered terminating my pregnancy because I feel I wouldn't even be able to supply for my new loved one.
Long story short, I'm just as confused as you but in the end out choices don't make us selfish because every single person in this world has different views and opinions on this. Only us can balance it out and make a decision.
It doesn't make you selfish if you don't want to go thru with this because your partner and you have not been together long (example on different views) because some may say a child suffers when parents split up and others may say well abortion is bad and you got pregnant. You're 20 an you've had a medical condition that makes you think twice. Some may say well you could always wait until net time when you get your health to par while others say you're only thinking about you. See what I mean?
Go by what you want. I know I'm trying to decide and it's not because I think I'm being selfish like others might say but because I'm trying to make a choice on the life I want to give my baby.
ms picos you could of atleast gave ur baby up for adoption not just terminate it cuz u couldnt provide for it. dont get me wrong im not judging u cuz im in a situation worst then all these kinda. but i mean i dont get what example you were trying to give her or what your point was. at for ashley your not being selfish at all you barly was with the guy not to long so basically you dont know if you have a future with that guy and sort of that could of been ur best bet was an abortion. but you know wat you will be blessed with another one hopefully when the time is right but usually we are blessed with one even when we think its not right and come to find out when the baby is born it changed us as a person.
