  • I would keep it. I believe things happen for a reason. You have to make the right choice for you though.

  • Yes I would keep my baby. I would never get an abortion. And in your circumstance I do see any "legitimate" reason to abort this child. You are married, have a child already, and your husband is employed and seems to be financially stable. The physcial help is not there but that's not a reason to abort an innocent human life.

  • I DON'T see any legitimate reason...not do.

  • I myself dont beleive in abortion or adoption under those circumstances so Id keep it 100%. I would most likely go back to work for as long as I could and save up as much as I could. After the baby was born, if able Id stay home and not return to work for a few years.

  • I would keep the baby.
    If a person were to abort a baby for selfish reasons as in this case- Id wish them the ability to no longer bear children!!

  • Keep it!!

    Answer by mommylisar at 9:28 PM on May. 16, 2010

  • Yes you should keep it . You are not single parent your husband provides for your family. So why not . Plus you already have a 17 month old so most of his stuff can be past on to him.

  • keep it. if your boss likes u they will keep u around. even PT
    and some guys dont like the younger stage, he might be of more help later, or you can ask for more help and tell him thats what you need if your going to have another baby
