I have recently found out I was pregnant with my 4th child. My concern and worry comes in when I think about how my family will feel that Im having another baby. I am 26 and already strugllin with 3. The dad is still around and helps as much as he can. He already have 4 kids before me.. I have thought numerous times about getting it aborted but still remain in a confused state with the whole thing. I know its nobody decision but mine, but I need some other opinions..
I have no opinions on what you should do, only to say that it sounds like you are having a rough time and that I hope you find emotional support with whatever you decide.
I posted a reply but for some reason it didn't show up...Anyways ultimately it's upto you, but here's my opinion: I was really ill during my pregnancy and my parents had to take care of me until i was 7 and a half months along. My now ex made things worse for me on purpose, and I had just graduated. Even afetr all the pain and heartache, mentally and physically I'm glad I didn't abort. I thought about it because I was single, just out of school, and very ill. But once I saw my baby I knew that I had done the right thing. I can't imagine not having him around, he's brought my family closer together, and because of him I've renewed my faith. In the end it all worked out and he's worth it. Just imagine not having one of your kids around. How would your life be different? Because if you have an abortion I think you will regret it because everyone Ive known of or known personally did, and it still haunts them. Honestly I'd rather have my son live with less material things for a season (nothing lasts forever) than being dead , and death is permanant. Why should I sentence my son to no life when IU'm the one that had sex. My parents gave me a chance to live, and he deserves the same. Can you really kill and innocent being? Im sorry if I offend you, it's not my goal, but this is reality. Abortion is death, and no lack of money or anything can be an excuse to kill your wonderful little baby.
Every baby is a blessing. If you truly feel you will be unable to care for it, put it up for adoption. There are LOTS of wonderful families looking for a baby to love
Good luck with your decision!
