    I’ve just found out I’m pregnant. When I notified the father he was initially quite caring but made it clear he did not want any children, he has since proceeded to blank me completely.

    My family live about 6 hours from me and I’m not sure how I’m going to cope financially as I only get statutory maternity in my job. I really don’t know what to do and whether I can cope alone.

    The lockdown is not helping matters either as I feel completely isolated and depressed about the situation.

    I feel very guilty as I thought I had low fertility and should be excited and happy about this however I’m feeling the complete opposite. I’m also 35 and really don’t think I can justify having an abortion at this age.

    Is anyone else in a similar position or have any advice they can offer me?

    Hi there, in a similar boat so sending lots of empathy. I am also 35 and feeling that I’m in a decent enough position practically but emotionally the rejection I feel on behalf of my unborn baby is really tough.
    How many weeks are you? I know everyone says it but you will be fine. You’ll make it work and there are good childcare options to help make it a little easier once you need to get back to work.
