I am 26 and pregnant again with my 3rd child.

I am 26 and pregnant again with my 3rd child.
The problem is I want to keep it, and my fiance of 3yrs has just walked out on me because I've been honest and told him I want to keep it. Now I am scared and confused and I don't know what to do. I no longer live in my home town so I haven't got friends and family for support although I speak to my family a lot, but it's not the same. I just don't know what to do. Help please x

Editor's Comment

It is hard work having a baby without the support of family and friends, and I can understand why you feel scared and confused. However, if you really wanted to keep the baby, and that was your feeling from the start, it is likely to be very distressing to change your mind now. It's possible that your fiance will come to terms with the shock of the pregnancy, since it was a longterm relationship. I suggest you look at how you can get more support, and whether it may even be possible to move back to your home town. If you need more help and support from a pregnancy centre please contact CareConfidential find a centre for pregnancy choices support in your area.
