Thursday morning, I woke up with tender nipples. This was the first indicator that I was pregnant with my daughter, so I went and bought some tests....sure enough, I'm pregnant. My daughter is 5 and I am no longer with her father. I have been with my boyfriend for about a year and things are less than stellar between us. I have always been against abortion, but at this moment, I'm actually considering it. I"m 35 years old, a single mother, and I don't think I could do it with another child. I don't live with my boyfriend and I am terrified of what the future may hold if I choose to have this baby. My daughter must be my first priority. I am also very high risk, so the pregnancy in itself will be very difficult, both mentally and physically. I am also thinking about how i will probably never have an opportunity to have another child and this child IS my daughter's little brother or sister. I"m having an internal battle right now and I don't know what to do. Please do not judge me as I have been beating myself up since I found out. FYI: I was on the pill (reclipsen), but had just stopped it due to repetitive intense migraines.....the timing was just .....perfect I guess. :( Has anyone been in a simliar situation or have any advice to offer? Please be kind...I'm so torn.Answer Question

I can't tell you the best thing for your future. I know you are probably feeling panicked right now and feel like you need to decide what route to go. Just slow it down a little and don't make a major decision in haste. If you are high risk, then I would suggest talking to your doctor about possible risks to both CTT and termination so that you are armed with all of the information you need to make the best decision for yourself.
The only other thing I have to say is that I have known a lot of women that have had abortions (mostly back in high school). I have yet to meet a person that regrets having a child, but I know countless that regret having an abortion.
In the end, you are the only one that can make the right decision for yourself.
