Unplanned pregnancy advice

User Profile
Hello, I found out recently that I am about 6 weeks pg tomorrow. This is very unplanned. I may want another child, but not for atleast 5 more years. I am in school and already have 2 young children. I am so lost, sad, depressed, I don't know what to do at this point. Anyone pregnant and in my position? I am considering all of my options, and have come up with no conclusion. I want the best possible opportunities for my child that I honestly would not be able to give him or her right now. I am barely keeping my head up above water with the two I already have! Would love to hear from pregnant women in my shoes considering abortion or adoption. thanks.

hey. i am not in the exact position but im only 15 and 6-7 weeks.and trying to figure out how im going to manage school. I would never have an abortion if i was you. if you don't think u can handle 3 small children you could look into adoption or even putting the new baby into foster care for a while until you figure out what you want to do.

It is a tough situation to be in. I can say this I had three by the time I was 19. I look back now and wonder how in the world I did it? It took a little longer to finish college but I did it. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger. I struggled but I never gave up. I divorced when I was 20 and my children became my life. My youngest wasn't planned at all. I remember that feeling of what now? I will ask this look at the two you have. Would you take their life? I know its overwhelming and it can be a breaking point. Yes, this pregnancy might not be in the time frame you have but there is always a reason.

alydawn,
i am surprised about your age and how intelligent you are. how do your parents feel about you being pregnant?
i only had one child at age 20 and i had people on the left telling me my life is over, and people on the right telling me not to make an excuse of not having money or a job to abort my child.
i have a girlfriend who is married but she had 7 pregnancies, and 5 births. 1 miscarry, and 1 abortion. she regret it till this day. but her rational was she wouldve had four different fathers.

we were very young, i voiced my opinion and that was all i could do.
i didnt agree with it, but that decision was up to her, she would have to live with her decision.
so i hope you make the right choice for yourself.

hi im 20 and 7 week pregnant frome a 26 year old ive been dateing here in chile while i study abroad. I did not want this child but God is so nice and just keeps being nicer and nicer. through praying i see my baby as a gift and I feel no fear and am very joyful. My sister had an abortion, and she wishes she hadnt.

God is faithful and will not try u beyond your ability .

i think that God is just the niceist thing ever! =) he is perfectly good and he will smile at my child when she is born and i will praise God and ask for strength.

by putting my trust in God alone and abanding many of the illutions of the world i am calm, joyful, and can see things clearly.

God Bless you!!!!!!!!!!
