I am 24 and single, and just found out i was pregnant. This is unplanned since I always use protection and had recently been on the pill. The father is a friend who at the moment has no idea. I’ve never been here before and have no idea what to do. I still live at home and have a good job but it would be hard to support myself let alone a child. However, I don’t know how I could live with myself if I had to give this child up for adoption. And I’ve always thought that I would be able to get the abortion, but now I am not sure. I would love it if someone who has been in a simialr situation to let me know how to get through this.
I know how scary it is. But you can’t panic and stress out. You are so blessed!! You have a beautiful growing inside of you.
Did you try to tell the father? YOu never know. He could be very supportive.
Do not ever think about having an abortion.That decision is one that you would have to live with for the rest of your life. It’s not your child’s fault. DOn’t kill it. Do you really want that guilt for the rest of your life? Do you want to wake up everyday and wonder what life would have been like if hadn’t done. Would it have been a boy or a girl, what color eyes and hair. What you would be doing at that excat moments 5 years down the line.
I havent been through the exact sitation because i wasnt alone. But i have had an abortion, and it was the worst decision of my life. I thought i would be fine with it too, but now i struggle with it everyday. I went through a deep depression, and the guilt and shame never go away. Giving up your child for adoption would be hard too, but at least you gave it life. Thats the best gift you can give. You should try telling the father. Maybe he will be supportive. And if not, there are a lot of groups for single moms that will help you. I hope everything goes well for you. If you need to talk im here.
