Do what you think is best for you and your little one that's already here.
Good luck with your decision mama.

I'm sorry you're going through this. I would do what's best for your health. Last year I got pregnant on depo and had to do what was best for me and my family. its so hard choosing what to do. Lots of hugs

You had Paragard, which is one of the best forms of BC. You didn't go out and not think about protection, you had it and something happened.



You have to do what's best for you. Ultimately, you've still got a couple of weeks to decide. You've got three options. Keep the baby, which you've mentioned health issues. Abort, make sure you're ready at the RIGHT time and make sure you've got yourself taken care of first. Adoption. Again... back to your health issues.



I cannot help you make this decision but maybe write a list of pros and cons... No matter what you do, you'll always think about the other options. "Good" or "bad", go with what is RIGHT for you hun.

I was overweight and unhealthy (though attempting/planning on getting healthy and getting my weight under control) when I got pregnant this pregnancy and last. And being pregnant has helped me with my weight and health problems (because I eat better knowing I have someone else to take care of). I have not gained any weight this pregnancy (my dr. is very happy with that because I am losing "me weight" and gaining "baby weight") and my bp is back to a healthy range (because I am letting less agitate me). Maybe baby would be a good thing for you? Good luck which ever you decide!

I have a thyroid issue which hinders me from losing weight, I just keep gaining! I have been trying to start eating healthier since my son has been eating "big boy" food. Thanks for all the help ladies! My number one thing right now is making sure I have my son well taken care of, I do want another baby, I just don't think now would be the best time. :/ My mom keeps telling me I can't give the baby away, or abort the baby because it's mine. I had to get her to watch my son while I went to the doctor today, When I came back she was acting very un-supportive and tells me "I can't believe you are trying to kill your baby" ugh. This is the hardest situation I've ever been in!

Sorry to hear you have a thyroid issue :-/ But whatever you choose remember it is about your health, the health of your unborn and what is best for you. Not what your mother thinks is right. (Like I think someone else already said) It's not like you were out there unprotected and not expecting to get pregnant...

I know how it feels mama, i fell pregnant when LO was 9mo and i also had a copper IUD in place at the time & am VERY overweight.



They told me that when they removed it i had a 50% chance or more of miscarrying etc..



It took me a lot to wrap my head around it but i eventually came to terms with having another baby.. i initially freaked out because i felt like they were going to hand me a newborn the next day when in reality i had over 1/2 a year to prepare myself.



Feel free to PM me anytime.



I've been in the same position you're in now.

This decision is one of the hardest that you will probably make.. I had my second son 5 months ago. when i found out i was pregnant with him i was had an iud in.. some how it went into the uteus. I was scared because im like wow i have a 3 year old with adhd and autism i really dont think i can handle another one. my fiance at the time said i should look into abortion.. i also have thryoid issues.. they were serve hypotyroidism were i have to take my meds everyday 175mcg.. i was 310 pounds so when i got pregnant i was like how can i do this.. but i desided hey i got pregnant on the iud maybe i was ment to be pregnant so i keep the pregnancy going.. during my pregancy i was taking my tyroid medicine and to my surprise i actually got healthier because im like wow im pregant so i ate the good foods one and a while maybe had a few sweets and sodas but i actually lost weight and was 276 when i gave birth to him.. he is actually 5 months today. about 5 weeks ago i was in a car accident my mom was driving connor who is 5months today was in the front seat and i was in the back seat with my now 4 year old son xander. my mom had a seizure and crashed into a huge concrete pole and i braced for the impact because i knew i couldnt do anything because my moms food was peirced on the gas.. i just gaurded my boys for the impact and my mom died instantly from the impact and my 5 month old was left unharmed and my 4 year old had some brusing from the seat belt and i broke my right femur which i am doing better with therapy.. but now i see it as wow i was pregnant for a reason.. my mom got to spend 4 months with my now 5 month old son.. just do whats best for you but really think about it before you make your decision. good luck girl

I never got pregnant with an IUD, but I know people whos babies didnt make after taking it out and babies who are perfectly healthy who were concieved with one. I also know how hard it can be to get pregnant! I am thankful for my baby everyday. I know two women who got pregnant 1 year after getting their tubes tied and kept the baby. They both said, it was obviously meant to be. You will make the right decision for you, just dont make it in haste, you dont want to regret anything.
