An unplanned pregnancy.

I recently found out that I'm pregnant. I already have two stunning girls, but when I told my husband he was horrified about the situation. He said that if I have the baby he will kill himself and that will be it. I think he is just being very dramatic and selfish.
I am very confused about what to do as I always thought I would love another baby, but his reaction has made me feel disgusted. I feel like he has forced me to have one but don't know if I can, this will ruin every thing. He is already 43 and said that he just wants to get on with his life and feels like as soon as the girls are old enough he will be off.....

Editor's Comment

You are in a difficult situation when your husband is reacting so strongly to the news. Part of his reaction may be the shock of an unplanned pregnancy, which could settle a bit once he gets used to the idea. In the end it is important to do what is right for you as well, and if you do not feel you could have an abortion then you need to think carefully about how you would react if you went through this just to please him. If you would like to talk this through with someone either seperately or together, please follow the link to find a centre for crisis pregnancy support in your area.
