So my husband and I sat down last night and realized just how much our life would change, and as selfish as it may seem, it's not a money issue that we couldn't take care of the baby, we were just overwhelmed, but after looking at each other like we were crazy, we decided that every child deserves to live.
I just wouldn't be able to look at my kids the same again, it would ruin our marriage, and I would be a basket case, of coarse with now maybe 4 kids....i will still be a basket case, but a basket case that didn't regret taking a life of her very own child. It's a hard 9 months and the labor sucks, but it's just a moment in time. This too will pass and they will be grown before I know it, so I might as well look up and say thank you, and it must speak highly of my character that God would bestow this blessing upon me, knowing that God never gives you more than you can handle. .
Thank you for all the support of the ladies out there with their opinions, thoughts, and stories, and never once being nasty or rude. It really helped my family think about it and see how selfish we were acting. Thank you ladies. I'm very early on, so lets see if the baby decides to hold on. By my math I am 7 weeks.
I haven't been on here in a while since I had my 2nd baby 7 months ago. Lately we have been moving, I have had a bunch of activities go on at work and just forgot when I last had my period. So the other day I take one of my diet pills and immediately get sick (which is very strange for me) so I start to think and I buy a home pregnancy test just to put my mind at ease, but low and behold it came out positive. Here are the cons, I just had a baby 7 months ago, I have a 17 year old that doesn't plan on driving or moving out anytime soon, I could potentially lose my job, not while i'm pregnant but daycare will be expensive, I really thought I was done having kids. My husband and his family are very religious and believe that a baby is a truly a gift from god and that it should be treated as such. Yesterday my husband and I were even talking about doing the dreaded "A" word. I just feel like i want to be there for my family and my boys that i already have instead of add more babies and not be able to give them what they need. Thoughts? opinions? stories about similar situations? anything would help us out right now, we just aren't sure what to do.
