Hi everyone, I am new here and I was so happy to find this site!! I am 31 years old with 2 children already. I found out a month ago that I was pregnant again. Although I am of age, I was so upset. We thought my boyfriend could not have any children (due to an accident). Well of course my first thought was abortion. I already had a boy and a girl, my pair, a wonderful job and finally getting out of the diaper stage..I don’t know if anyone of you has ever thought abortion or maybe future ones but I thought it was the best choice for me. I made an appointment to go in and do it on this Sat. the 13th. I was surprised to hear the lady tell me after confirming the appointment that I had to hold the line and hear a recording. Well in that recording the actual doctor comes on and tells you the risks. It blew my mind. I am happy to say that last night I got on my knees and prayed to God for the strength that I needed to be able to bring this baby into the world. I am keeping my baby. It will be rough but I will manage. Just to anyone out there, if you felt like me or maybe depressed how I sometimes feel, I would enjoy chatting with you. Thank you!
I wouldn’t normally say this to the age group of most on this site, but in your case, I have to say you are so blessed and lucky. I am unable to have any more children and would be thrilled in your position. (I’m in my 30’s) It’s great that you want to keep your baby, but even if you had chosen adoption, it would obviously be a wonderful choice compared to an abortion. God bless you and congratulations on making the decision to give life rather than taking it away.
