When you got that unplanned positive did you think about your options and if you kept the baby what was your reasoning?

I knew with baby#2 my dd I would keep it cause I knew dh wanted a girl and when I saw the positive I knew it was a girl.
With this baby I thought about open adoption but I just can't see not raising my baby even though it's going to be harder this time around since dh and I have seperated. I know he wants the baby now but at first I wasn't sure what he was wanting so I thought I was going to be all on my own with 3 kids but he is stepping up and is really happy I stopped thinking about adoption.

I'm not currently pregnant, but I had an unplanned pregnancy when I was 17. When I found out I was pregnant, I thought of all my options. I really didn't think I could parent a child at that time. I was also worried about it getting in the way of all my plans, and I wasn't ready to sacrifice my own life at the time. We ended up keeping the baby and I'm so glad we did. He's 7 years old now and I can't imagine life without him. Parenting is not the right choice for everyone, and I strongly encourage anyone with an unplanned pregnancy to look into their options and to not feel guiltly doing so.

Yes. I was leaning toward abortion and had actually called to get prices. DH really wanted to have the baby and it kinda grew on me so we decided to keep her.

We talked for a long time after finding out we were pregnant. We had some serious talks about termination. Bf said he didnt want to put it up for adoption. He felt taht either termination or keeping it was the only real options we should consider. And after a little bit of time to think, he wanted to keep the baby. It took me a long time to get used to the idea of having a baby.

But I am glad we made our decision.

there was no doubt in my mind that i would have this baby, because my ex forced me to terminate a pregnancy in 2008. it was one of the worst things that anyone ever did to me and i wish i could take it back. i could never let it happen again. that said, my tubes are tied this time.

This time there was no thoughts of anything but keeping him/her, even though I already have 2 kids, my husband left just weeks before finding out and I already had a lot of life plans that are now on hold again.
