First of all, all the ladies on here will tell you that your decision should have Nothing to do with what the father thinks about it being convenient, not being his priority, not wanting anything to do with your baby, etc. It was his decision to have sex with you, and if he doesn't want to take responsibility for the child you conceived, that makes him a jerk, but does not give him the right to pressure you emotionally to abort your baby. You are this baby's mother, you have been given the opportunity to parent your own son or daughter, and if you want to raise this baby he should have nothing but encouragement. If he doesn't, he shouldn't be in your life.

Now, you have a place to live, are beginning a good career, and totally can do this. Having made it through law school already shows that you're crazy on top of things. You got this no problem! I also want to say that you should not worry about raising this child on your own permanently. I know plenty of women who were single moms initially and then found great guys who took the father roll for their child or children.

Take a deep breath. You can do this, and when your little son or daughter is finally nestled in your arms you will absolutely have no regrets.
