Pregnant with a 2 year old, and 5 month old baby.

I just found out I'm 5 weeks pregnant and I'm so confused on what to do. I am 20 years of age but already have a 2 year old child and a 5 month old child and don't know what to do. My partner wants me to keep it. Can anyone help????????

Editor's Comment

I am sure you are very stretched looking after 2 young children, and it probably feels difficult contemplating another baby. You need to think through how you feel about abortion, and what it would do to your relationship if you chose abortion when your partner wanted you to keep the baby.
Sometimes it helps to think how you will feel in a year, 2 years, or 5 years. Although your children will be close in age, they won't always be so dependent on you, and they will have each other to play with as they grow up together. There are trained advisors on the national helpline 0300 4000 999 who can help you think through your decision without pressure or judgement. You can also follow the link to find a centre for crisis pregnancy support in your area.
