  • That's terrible. I can't imagine my mother telling me to do something like that. I'm sorry your mom can't be supportive. Hopefully you can lean on your SO during such a tough time. Good luck.

  • We went through rough times with our first 2 kids. We made it! Now we are having our 4th :)
    We all go through rough times. I think that is just rude. I also hope your SO is supportive since your mother isn't. Congratulations and I wish you all the best.

  • That is a child of God and God provides. Problem solved. No need for the abortion. What kind of thing is that to tell someone?

  • That was a terrible thing for your mom to say. Show her the abortion videos on and that might change her mind. Keep the baby because as long as your happy thats all that matters.
