I'm thinking about abortion.

I'm 9 weeks, 1 day pregnant. When I foudn out at 4 weeks my boyfriend asked me and we talked for a week and I said no. I've always thought I was pro-life for myself. I don't think I could live with myself if I aborted. But the further along I go, the more I think that I don't want to be pregnant or have another baby right now. I'm 22 years old, and we haven't been officially dating all that long. We've been friends for years and he's really supportive of my decision and has come to appointments and helps out. But I'm a single mom to my 18-month-old, we're not at that stage where he'd step up, it's still early. I'm also in school. I'm a full-time Honours Psychology student. The further along I go, the more I think I'm happy with one child. I don't want to cause an emotional rift. Things will be complicated. I want to be in school and finish and be successful. It's exponentially harder with two children. 

I don't know what to do. I don't know if I could have an abortion. Someday I hope I miscarry... it's horrible but then it's not me making the decision. :( I know I'll bond when I get further along and I know things will come together and they will find a way to work but it's hard right now.

And to answer your question.. we were using protection but I didn't know there was a pill recall.

You might get bashed for hoping you'll miscarry :/

If you have even a shred of doubt about getting an abortion, don't do it. 


It sounds like you do.  Have you considered adoption?

Probably but they're honest feelings. And I know I'm not the only one who's ever thought that.

It's ultimately your choice whether or not to terminate.

But it's something YOU'LL have to carry with you your entire life and there's always that possibility that regret will come along with that decision.

Nobody gets to make this choice but you.

That must be tough. I'm so sorry. I hope you get it figured out soon.

I considered adoption with my first. I was balling before the person even said anything. Can't do it, I would raise my own children. And I can't seperate my kids, it's hard :(

Well, if it were me, I'd have an abortion. You seem to have your head on straight with what you want and the direction you're going in with school is looking really good for you. You've pretty much given really good reasons why having a baby right now wouldn't be the best choice.

I'm not asking for someone to decide. Just for others experiences, input, alternative views. I'm hormonal, pregnant and stressed.. not thinking as clearly as I could be.
