Found out I'm pregnant, and not happy. We've been using condoms for a year so this was a huge shock. I'm married and we don't want another baby at all. I would have an abortion today but there is no way we will save 450$ in a month, (i am seven weeks). we already get a lot of help from my family, don't even have a car. Plus my mental health is terrible I have been stressed to the max since finding out. Work has been hard, and I think I'm literally making myself sick with anxiety. I have no energy i just lay in bed and cry and get sick 20 times a day. Idk what anyone can say to help, I just need to vent somewhere  :(

I'm sorry you're going through this... if you can't afford an abortion is adoption an option? I'm not trying to push anything on you just trying to think of ideas... I wish you best of luck!

Call your local planned parenthood and see if you can get some kind of financial assistance for the procedure.  That's if you really want to go through with it. 

I think there are programs that can help with the cost or maybe even a payment plan. Some insurances will cover the cost as well. 

Good luck on whatever you decide.  I hope everything goes ok for you. I'm here to talk if you need it.

Do you qualify for pregnancy medicaid? That would be a huge help and adoption is a good option because lots of times the prospective parents pay for everything. Definitely call around and look into what you can do.

Perhaps a payment plan with Planned Parenthood? Doesn't hurt to go in and explain your situation.

I hope whatever you want to happen works out for you!

My husband would never be ok with adoption, and I don't think I could do it either. I don't have insurance and am ineligible for medicaid. And there is no planned parenthood in my town, but I might be able to get a ride to one. Do they really have payment plans for this? Has anyone done that?

Being pregnant I bet you would be eligible for mediciad now....the income limits for pregnancy are usually higher and now you would be considered a family of 3

I would give them a call in the morning and check. I don't know about your state, but I saw funding programs when I did research. 

Just be careful and watch out for fake agencies that are religious based. It's a trap.

Yeah you'll be able to get pregnancy Medicaid. When I got an abortion back in 2013 it was 250 after The help I got. You have half of it when you go to your exam and then the day of your procedure you'll pay the other half. Good luck:) it's a hard decision to make.
