At first, when I saw the positive pregnancy test, I couldn't quite believe it.
Editor’s note: Thanks for writing in about your experience…It sounds as if you were under pressure right from the word go, and didn’t really have time to think through all the options, or even talk through your feelings thoroughly. When a woman faces an unplanned pregnancy and finds she is unsupported by her partner, she often feels she has to make the choice between the relationship and the baby. And again, in that situation, the woman often chooses the relationship over the pregnancy but the tension that follows, when she realises her loss, is often enough to disrupt the relationship anyway.
A week is no time at all to process the shock of an unplanned pregnancy and make an informed decision based on accurate information, rather than fear, panic or pressure from someone else. If you feel you would like to talk about your experience and process your feelings now, then you could contact your nearest centre and make an appointment for some support.
