You did what was best for you and your daughter at the time. It doesn't mean you never deserve to be happy or have another baby. If your situation has changed, that is great, and there is nothing wrong with trying to have a baby if you are sure you are ready.

As for your boyfriend, sit him down and let him know that you do regret it, but that past can't be changed and it was best at the time. But that doesn't mean you can't try again in the future.

Well I haven't really been in your shoes but I think if you felt it was right then it was.

If you want to have a baby you should have one.

I've never had an abortion but IMO if you feel that you are finacially stable and able to care for a child now then go for it. If it's something that you and your boyfriend can agree on. I know that you have a lot of regret in your choice but from the sounds of it you did what you thought was best for you and your family at the time. GL

You absolutely deserve to be happy.
The past is the past...and if you regret what you've done..then you'll regret who you are.

The things you've done and been through make you who you now have an experience (Albeit a bad or negative one) that will help you in your life.
Either it will help you appreciate the small things later...or you'll be able to help someone else who finds themselves in a similar situation.

I'm so sorry that you were forced into a decision that hurts you now..but one day....(If you don't yet) you'll have financial freedom and no one will ever be able to tell you what to do again.
