I don't think so.
I would just advise don't make a rash decision (whether it be abortion or keeping it)

It would be 100% your choice. If you really want the baby then I know you can take the steps necessary to take care of it when it gets here :) I really hope things get better for you. I'd think on it for a few days to a week to see what you believe is going to be the right choice for you & remember, you can always file for childsupport & there are organizations that aim to help those in your situation

Absolutely not. Circumstances are constantly changing. The reasons for trying may not apply anymore.



You have to consider yourself & your current situation above anything.

Not at all. I'm so sorry for your guy bailing on you- what a crappy thing to do. There are resources out there for you whether you decide to abort or not.

I'm assuming you are no longer with the person you TTC'd with?




If you don't want to do it alone, there is no shame in abortion at all. Do what is best for YOU. This is your choice.

You and only you can make that choice. I could never do it!! But that's me. My kids are the greatest gift ever and when I was left pregnant and alone I didn't think I could do it but I did. You are stronger then u think but u must be the one to live with the result in the end

That's just a very controversial topic. Only you know what's right for you. I had one, and though I feel horrible for doing it, I also know that it was not the right time for a baby. Now I'm pregnant again and happy. Do what's good for you :-)

of course. but at 9 weeks, i would rather not get too much further and be forced to keep a baby. i wanted this baby so bad, and unfortunately my life just took a shit on me. i need to do whats best for my child i have now, and try to make it out of this crappy situation atleast somewhat okay.

It would absolutely not make you a bad person, but do not do something until you completely think it through. You can do it alone, shit Ill be doing it alone with 2 kiddos come fall time yes it will be tough but its totally doable. If you feel its best for you to abort or adopt then thats fine to. Do what you feel is best for you and what will make you happy.

Do what is best for your current child as well as the one you are carrying. Consider what you would have to sacrifice for this baby and whether it is worth taking a chance on. You would NOT be a bad person at all.
