My head is all over the place, it's all such a mess!
Hi, I'm 26 and I have a girl 7 and a boy 3 to my ex who left me last year after a 9-year relationship. I work just 5 hours a week and I'm on income support to top up my earnings.
I've been seeing a great guy for 6 months now and things are going great. He is 23 and has 3 kids to his ex but she doesn't allow him access - she says he was merely a sperm donor. He is at college just now and is planning on doing a full-time college course in august... problem is I'm pregnant.

I'm approx 4 weeks, he's over the moon, I'm confused
How can we afford to have this child?
I have a 2 bed flat and he is going to be moving in this month, but we don't have room for a baby and I have no idea how on earth we will afford a baby with him at college... my head is all over the place.
I thought about abortion with my eldest and couldn't go through with it. I don't know how I'd live with myself, I feel sick even thinking about it :(, my parents are another concern - my ex and I aren't divorced yet and they had already made it clear two kids were enough and I can't see me having their support... oh it's all such a mess!
