  • You could adopt.

  • "If you can't do the time, don't do the crime"

    If you feel that you can't handle the consequences of getting pregnant, you shouldn't get pregnant. Just because you had a smooth past pregnancy doesn't mean that your next one will be the same.

  • I had it all with my son. * months of constant vomiting, heartburn tomake you cry. pinched nerve in my back. severe preeclampsia and induced early. all natrual childbirth, and time in the nicu for him. its not easy when your bent over the toliet or cant breath past the heartburn, however when you feel that little stinker kicking you and doing flips its all worth it. and its not like when you have the flu and feel like crap all over. even after all that and knowing how bad it can get im ready to try again. but it is up to you if you really cant deal then it is your choice.

  • If you would terminate the pregnancy for the symptoms I'd say don't get pregnant! Not being mean just honest! My daughters pregnancy was awful, but my sons was a breeze! I don't like throwing up either, I'd honestly rather have the flu, but I couldn't imagine killing my daughter over 5 months of being stuck to a toliet. 9 months is really just an ever so short of a time to carry your baby! They grow up so fast and I think you would regret not be willing to make that sacrafice for a life or maybe not, just my opionion. :)

  • You read my answer the way you wanted to read it...if you re-read it with a positive attitude you will see that nothing I said was "rude" in the least. You misconstrued my answer.

    You asked for my opinion, you got my opinion. I don't candy coat or tippy-toe around the truth.

    YOU stated that you can't handle the morning sickness. Your exact words were " I cannot deal with vomiting at ALL". ALL I did was say that if you can't deal with pregnancy symptoms, you shouldn't get pregnant...HOW was that "rude"??

  • Ive already been pregnant but im just nervouse about another one. I didnt post this answer for it to be an argument I posted it for some answers. AND as for you "jlee38340" who the hell said anything about terminating the pregnancy due to the symptoms?. I said I had to do it for health reasons. Your just one of those people who think every women who terminates is due to there own selfishness. Your rude and annoying and I dont like people like you. If you have nothing nice to say about my question then dont fu*king answer it.
