Last month after having a few too many, I slept with an old school friend.

I’m 26 yrs old. I am a single parent to a 4 year old girl. Last month after having a few too many, I slept with an old school friend. We are still in contact but both agreed we didn’t want anything serious so just wanted to remain friends. I have now found out I’m four weeks pregnant!! I don’t know what to do. I just keep crying. I don’t agree with abortions but I don’t know if I want this child! I’m so confused! Editor’s note: Thanks for writing in…You’ve had an enormous shock and it has thrown you into confusion and fear.
