Hello everyone. 2 days ago I found out I'm 5 weeks pregnant. My boyfriend who is 24, is very supportive of whatever I decide to do with my pregnancy. I'm terrified and I'm very unsure about what to do. I feel like abortion would be wrong because I took the risk of having unprotected sex and adoption is out of the question. Also, I feel like I'd be a huge disappointment to my entire family if they found out I was pregnant. Any advice out there?
You should do what you feel is best for you. If you want to keep the baby or not is entirely your decision as well as your partners. Talk to him and see how he feels, by the sounds of it, no matter what he is going to be there . But tell your parents, or at least your mother first so she can help you for she has been there. I am sure she will be understanding, morely shocked none the less. If it makes you better, Im 19, and afraid to go and buy a test - my bf doesnt think I am but idk. But no matter what you do good luck to you all
I agree with CreativeArt, the decision is ultimately yours as you are the one carrying the baby. Whenever I first thought the idea of me being pregnant I weighed the pro's and con's of the baby not myself. Would I be able to give him or her the love and necessities he or she would need? Are we as parents prepared to dedicate our lives to him or her? Will we be able to be good role models? I never once thought about how that would affect anyone but the 3 of us. I'm sure some people would be disappointed but at the same time its not their place or decision to say whats best for you unless you are TRULY not in a place to be caring for a child.
