I don't know what to do, my head is spinning

I'm 14 weeks pregnant and 25yrs old. I have a 6yr old son and now yet another failed relationship. I feel so guilty as this child was planned but now my partner has gone. I don't know if I'm strong enough to do this.
My 6yr old has chronic lung disease and is in and out of hospital. Part of me thinks if I can cope with that alone, I can do this, but other times it makes me panicky and lonely.
My mum is disgusted with my situation. I have no support anywhere. I don't know what to do, my head is spinning, I can't believe I've got into this mess.

Editor's Comment

It sounds as though you have been very let down in this relationship. If you were planning a baby together you must have felt that it was a strong longterm relationship, and now your parner has left. At 14 weeks, you are into your second timester and thinking about different options will be harder for you. What you do need is support and somewhere to go for help. Many pregnancy centres can support you through the pregnancy and beyond if that is what you want, and you choose to continue the pregnancy. They can also give you time and space to think through your options and decide what is best for you. If you decide to end the pregnancy, they will also give you post abortion support. Have a look at the website for a centre near you, or call the national helpline 0300 4000 999.
