Having a hard Time

Hey there, my name is Gracie.

I'm eighteen years old, and pregnant with my first baby. I'm having a really hard time coping though. I'm six weeks along and am at a high risk pregnancy. My baby is growing in the wrong part of my uterus. Instead of growing in the middle like it is supposed to its growing towards the top very close to my tubes. my ob gyn told me that I needed an abortion immediately before I am  injured. I got a second opinion by a specialist and he wanted to wait a few weeks. On top of it my fiance is out of state working and I'm having to cope with all the stress by myself and am just feeling exhausted mentally and physically. Any advice or words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

This is such a hard situation :|

I'm not much older myself, but I would wait a few weeks if you think you'd have extreme regrets about an abortion. I know that decision to make gets harder as time goes on.. but whats the likely hood of the pregnancy to continue? Will it cause you to have trouble getting pregnant in the future? Could it possibly endanger your life? Honestly, in my opinion (some might want to shoot me) if its going to risk your life I would say abortion. However, with all the stress you're going through its a wonder you're still carrying it! Talk to your doctor to see the possible complications that go with continuing the pregnancy and make the judgment you feel best and forget what others think.

 One doctor said abort, specialist said to wait. A pregnancy in the tubes is not viable and a danger to the mother. The specialist is telling your to wait it is not in the tube yet, and he is the specialist and that is what you paid him for. he sees this more than the other doctor. I would wait and see what the specialist can confirm and it will be unnerving to be sure, but hold tight.Try for the sake of your sanity, and the health of your baby to relax. Prayers go with you.

I don't know anything about that complication sorry. I hope everything turns out okay, and that you, and your baby are healthy. Good Luck.
