My son turns 9 months old tomorrow. I also have a 5 year old daughter. Yep, you guessed it I'm pregnant! This was not planned. I don't know what to do. I feel like adoption and abortion are things I can't emotionally handle. How do I have a baby and form a connection only to give it up? How do I explain to my dd that I was pregnant but I didn't keep the baby? And then with abortion im just not sure I'm comfortable with that. Plus I feel like resources for that route are limited in my area.
I had my last period on June 20. On July 4 I slept with a friend. Then on July 8 I slept with the guy I am now in a relationship with...I know that was a big mistake. I didn't use protection with either of them.
I'm 22 and currently live with my mom because I don't have a car. I think that If I save up and have my own car I can get a second job or a better job and get my own place. So if I kept the baby that would be a big motivation. But how can I be 22 with 3 kids? How do I tell my family? Everyone will be so disappointed.
I called my boyfriend right after I took the test. Because of his work schedule he sleeps all day and is up all night so he was asleep. I told him I was pregnant and he didn't say much. I think he was just shocked and still half asleep. What if he doesn't want to keep the baby? Will he be supportive?
Then there is that chance that the baby isn't my boyfriends. When I got pregnant with my DS I know I conceived on February 3 which was a few days after all the pregnancy calculators estimated day. So even though the calculators now estimated the 4-5 of July it could have been later.
I first had sex with my boyfriend on July 8 and then just about everyday that week. Then I was out of town for the following week. I took a pregnancy test on Friday of last week, while I was out of town and it said negative right away. Now a week later it's positive.
Can anyone offer any advice? What would you do? I'm so scared. I need to make the smartest choices for me and my kids.
