I don’t really know where to start.. I found out 2 weeks ago that I am pregnant with my ex’s baby.. of course he has gone on the missing list and is nowhere to be seen. The thing is we’ve been in this position before and I had an abortion, this time around I don’t think I can go through with that traumatic experience again, I’m 24 going to be a single parent, I live at home with my mum, I have nothing behind me no savings or even drive.. I really don’t know what to do every day is difficult to come to a decision I feel so confused. Is there anyone out there that has been in my situation.. if so what do I do from here? I’ve also just lost my job due to there cut backs. All help would be greatly appreciated.
I’m in a similar position im living with my parents following my relationship breakdown and I’m pregnant. It is a tough decision and only you know what’s best for you. What I would suggest is talking to your mum and family about what support they can offer. My family have helped me through the pregnancy and although I’m really hurt by my ex’s actions I know this baby will be loved and well cared for. Look at the support around you, also can you look at other jobs? How many weeks are you?
thank you for the info, is this your first time? My mum isn’t being really supportive right now.. She’s trying to give me the pros and cons I guess on keeping the baby, which I get as she brought me up on her own. I haven’t told anyone else yet as I don’t want too many opinions I’m trying to work it out for myself but I’m finding it so difficult. I’m not too sure how many weeks I am I have a scan on Saturday so I will find out then but I think only 5/6. I’m used working in an office 9-5 I am registered with all the agencies etc but I’m just so scared like with the cost of the baby.. I have nothing behind me no savings etc.
if you have any other advice or tips on savings and costing that would be good.
Yeah first baby and I get where your coming from I had the same anxieties and worries. It’s not easy I won’t lie but I’m getting through it and have planned a lot in preparation for the baby. Yep I can give you tips hun private message me x
