I am 5 weeks pregnant and really confused

I just found out on Monday that I am 5 weeks pregnant. I have an appointment today to see a doctor about termination.
I'm really confused. My head says one thing and my heart another. I want this baby, but I am not with the father and he doesn't want it. He's told me he'll be there and support me through termination, but won't be there if I keep it :( I feel I have no other choice).

Editor's Comment

It is difficult to think about having a baby when you feel you have no support. The father is putting pressure on you to decide on termination, but it sounds as though you are very unsure about this decision. It would be good to think through what support you could get if you did decide to continue the pregnancy, and how you would feel if you choose abortion. It is often easier to allow circumstances to guide your decision, but if you ignore what your heart is telling you, you may feel you have betrayed yourself and gone against your instincts and values. It is always worth seeing a pregnancy advisor to talk through your decision and be sure about your choice.
