So I've been contemplating on keeping the baby or not. I couldnt take it anymore so this morning I broke down crying and told my mom I was pregnant and was thinking about abortion. Apparently she knew that I was pregnant and told me I'd regret aborting it for the rest of my life and it's just a baby, it would be okay. We weren't going to tell my dad yet but I guess she changed her mind while I was in the shower. It completely caught me off guard and I've pretty much locked myself away with my 3 year old. Idk really how to handle this. I can't look my dad in the eye right now. I know I'm grown but he hasn't liked my choices lately and this is serious overload. I feel like this is how I should have felt at 16 instead of 20. ha It's still a shock to me. I'm still shaking, I'm still on the verge of tears. I'm just freaking out.

You are an adult and your the one whos pregnant so you have to make he right choice for yourself. Has for your dad he will eventually calm down about it. When i found out i was pregnant with my now 3 month old my mom was so pissed at me mainly because i already had a 10 month old . but she loves them both so much and we live with her now cause me and my fiance arent together anymore. I always believe everything happens for a reason and our children are given to us for a reason

Its just a baby?



It's so much more than a baby. It's your life, it's the babies life, its LOTS of big changes.



You need to do what is best for YOU and your life.



I don't know how old you are so I don't know how much of your parents input will matter at this point but it will be ok...No matter what.

I think what she meant was, she'd rather me be pregnant than have some sort of permanent disease. & I'm 20 but I moved in with my parents when I lost my job. this wasn't very good timing.
