I'm a mom of five(2boys 3girls). All my kids were delivered by c-section. I'm pregnant right now,with baby no 6. My Doc strongly disapproved, and suggested abortion (for health reasons).my Hubby wants the baby and he told me that he wouldn't pay a dime for the abortion.

  • your health or the baby's health? either way, abortion seems wrong.

  • Well what is the health reason? could you die?? if your Doctor advises against it it must be serious.

  • Discuss the options with husband and both come to a conclusion.

  • I dont blame you for not aborting it. ALL life is precious. Im sure the Dr told you his concerns for your life and the baby's. 5 C-sec's already is one more than you should have, now at #6 you really are risking your's and the baby's life. I hope you carry to term and have a healthy baby. At least consider a hysterectomy when they deliver this baby. Cant get preggo again if you have no uterus.

  • You can always consider having another doctor's opinion.

  • You have to do what you think is right, and if your husband disagrees, deal with it. As for "he's not paying..." that's bull$#it. It's your money, too.

  • I would carry for sure!

    Get a new doctor. You are at risk but you are not the first women to have 6 csections.

    Is VBAC an option

  • Did you bring your DH to the doctor so the doctor can talk to him about it.
