My son's father and recently separated. I moved back to my moms with my son for now, while my ex stayed at our place. We are signing our custody agreement next week, and sure enough 2 days ago I get a positive test. Figures. I'm in school full time, and only working 2 days a week, with a 2 year old, while separating with his father. Obviously, I cannot have this baby right now, but the thought of an abortion kills me. We both agreed it's the right thing to do given the situation, and it's already scheduled. Adoption is out of the question because I know I would never be able to give it up. I just need someone to tell me it's going to be okay :cry:

It will be a tough choice but you have to think of what's best for yourself and your son. If adoption is out of the question abortion really sounds like your best option. <3

You have to do what you feel and know will be the right thing to do. Stay strong and good luck :)

Right before my daughters 2nd birthday I found out I was pregnant. I was planning on starting nursing school and I knew I couldn't have the baby. As hard as it was I chose to have an abortion. Every now and then I wish I didn't, but I know it was the best decision for me. I'm now in school and know it would be 10 times harder if I had kept the baby. It's a really really hard decision to make. I always said I'd never have an abortion. Whatever you do just make sure it's your decision- not anyone elses.

Trust me it will be very hard. But, you need to give your son the best life he can have. If you aren't with his dad anymore that will put a lot of stress on you. Plus when my daugther turned two, she started acting up so bad. I couldn't imagine dealing with the terrible twos and a newborn. (although, ppl have doen it.) Just a lot of stress, especially if you aren't with the dad. You will have days you regret your decision, but you can't beat yourself up about it. Just remind yourself you did what was best for you and your son. You are young and one day will find a great guy to marry and have more kids with.
