So, I found this website because I don't really have anyone to talk to, I mean..I have a lot of friends, but this just doesnt seem to be something that I can talk to them about.
I found out yesterday, by my doctor through a blood test that I am pregnant. I'm only about 3 1/2-4 wks along...I have another appointment to make sure everything is ok on Tuesday.
My boyfriend, is scared to death, he is 22...I am 26. He said to me tonight that he is not ready to have a child, but that he will support any decision I make. It makes me sick thinking about it. I was informed by previous doctors that my chances of conceiving were very small, so to me this seems like a miracle. The problem is that we just moved to a new place, we are living with friends, I recently found a new job, and my boyfriend is still looking for one, he had a UA for Home depot this week, but hasnt heard anything back yet. I know we are at rock bottom...but I WANT this child...I feel like a part of my would die if I aborted or gave him/her up for adoption.
I just need advice...I have a cousin who was in the same situation as me, and has raised an incredible child, by herself as well. And friends, of course, who have raised children on small wages. I want what is best for my child, but it feels like he wants me to give up....other people who have found out have asked if I was stupid for getting pregnant....I just dont know what to do, I feel like if I want to keep this child that it is wrong, but to others, not to me....Help!
