  • If you don't think you can do it then don't. Don't let anyone talk you into something you don't want to do... whatever the reason. If you choose to terminate the pregnancy , that is your choice. If you choose adoption that is also up to you. It is a decision only you can make.

  • If you feel you can't keep your baby then there are lots of people who would do anything to have a baby. But think through it really well because it is a decision you will have to live with forever. GL

  • Why weren't you taking precautions to not make another child?

  • Why can't you keep the baby?

  • I think it is something that you can only decide. Plenty of ladies have 3 kids under 3. I was one of them. They were planned and we were able to provide for them everything that they needed. If you can not provide for a third then I would start looking into adoption.

  • Only you can make this decision. How does your partner feel about it? Just know this, whatever you decide to do is your buisness. Don't let anyone make you feel bad about it. Good luck. I wish I could offer you more insightful advice.

  • Do you have any family support or someone who may be able to help? I am not sure as to why you cannot keep the baby. If it is financial reasons, maybe check your state resources for help. Cafemom has lots of support groups that may help from adoption to keeping your baby. Try and get all the information you can before making any decision. I cannot imagine what you are going through...."hugs"

  • What aspect specifically are you concerned about? There may be a way to work around it. If you are stressing out it just may be hard to see the answer. If you want we can try to help you but we are going to need to know *why* you feel you can't do this...
