  • Well, if it is her second then she knows what she is in for - it isn't easy being pregnant. It is also kind of intimidating jumping from the care of one child to two ....

  • I think depending on the circumstances...she's obviously still in college, and not far into it yet if she's in freshman comp. so yes, in her situation I would.

  • I think it the equivalent to getting cold feet before getting married.

    It's new (even for the other girl) and you don't know exactly what will happen. Its also not like a band-aid, you can't just "get it over with" because it lasts the rest of your life and you can't take it back.

    Just take a deep breath and think of all the things you would be missing if you DON'T have this child, your baby. It'll be ok, I promise.

  • Yep. I know I will love this baby just as much as I do my other two children. But I wish I wasn't pregnant.

  • It depends on the situation I think. We were trying to get pregnant both times and were thrilled about them. yes there were times I was miserable and uncomfortable and worried about how my first child would react to his sister, but I never regretted getting pregnant.

  • I think it all depends on what is going on her life. I know with this one, I regretted it. I don't now. However, I do regret other things, like not getting to the doctor sooner. If she doesn't pull out it, she might need to see someone, but that usually goes away.
