I am pretty sure I am a few weeks into pregnancy. I am nineteen years old, my fiance' is in the United States Marine Corps. We recently solved a lot of problems in our relationship and spent a few weeks together recently while we were fixing our relationship. During that time - I had unprotected sex. I cannot use birth control because I get blood clots and most other methods are not safe because I have a blood disorder. I am also highly allergic to spermicide and latex and even the non-latex or spermicidal condoms irritate me. I have been suffering from nausea, frequent urination, breast pain, and headaches for about a week. I am really nervous because we are still in a point where we aren't ready to settle down with a family. His career in the Marines has only just begun and I am not ready to get married. We didn't to be like the other military couples and get married and have kids at a young age. This is throwing a major dent in my plan. I dont want to get an abortion despite the risks of my pregnancy because of my medical condition. I would look into adoption though. I told my mom and my step mom but telling anyone else will be difficult. My fiance is absolutely a basket case about everything, but he is trying to stay calm and be my anchor at rough seas.

I am taking my test in the morning, Im so scared.

Any advice? Anything?

I would just like to start by saying that u and ur baby are both beautiful, individual human beings both with the right to have a chance in life...Please consider carefully what you are doing...know that by adopting ur child out, you are giving him/her a chance in life...they will be forever grateful to u knowing that u chose to adopt them out...so many women regret having had an abortion rather than keeping their baby...we are all here to encourage and support u...and be standup girls and choose life...abortion can't solve problems...it will only create pain and struggle...however confusing ur life is, u can be sure u r ready to take a stand for life and choose life (both for u and ur child)

Please take a look at the websites Punky has put up below...also take a look at the Heartbeat International website http://www.heartbeatinternational.org/ with some great resources...

In my thoughts,
Love and God Bless,
