I am at 37 weeks as of today. Recently I've been having doubts in myself and feeling that I should have gotten an abortion when I found out I was pregnant. I don't believe in abortion, and never thought I'd ever be a person who would regret not getting one, but I am feeling lost and alone. The father of the child doesn't believe it is his kid, because we broke up shortly after I found out. He has treated be rather badly over the past 9 months, and I am not sure if this is the reason I am having so many doubts. A few months ago I met someone who has been amazing, and has pulled me through a lot of my doubts, and has been there for me where my ex refused, but this keeps ringing in my mind no matter what I do. Everyone I've asked in my family says it is normal, because of the amount of mental abuse I endured with my ex, and being a first time mom.
Maybe it is because I am young, and this wasn't a planned pregnancy. I am only 20, and not sure if I have the strength to be a mother, but I need to know if it is normal to feel like this, and to fear being a mother so much.
