Ever since my miscarriage, I have wanted another baby.

I have four children and I'm married. I had a miscarriage a few months ago and ever since I have wanted another baby. My husband didn't want more but then he agreed and we started trying.
My husband then had a bad day with our children and decided he couldn't have another so said we had to stop trying. I have now found out I'm pregnant, husband doesn't want it and I don't think I can have an abortion.

Editor's Comment

That is hard for you to find out when your husband has changed his mind. After a miscarriage women often feel a longing to replace the baby they have lost, and that is a very natural reaction. You must be feeling on a bit of a roller coaster with these changes, but in the end if you choose abortion and then regret the decision, it will be hard to come to terms with your regret. You both need to be in agreement with such a big decision, otherwise it is likely to but a strain on your relationship. If you would like to talk about your situation there is help and support available, for unplanned pregnancy support. or call the helpline 0300 4000 999.
