We are going to have this baby.

I found out I was pregnant 4 days ago with our 4th baby.
We talked about it a lot that night and thought the best thing to do was to terminate this baby, as my partner has just started his own business and our youngest baby is now 4 1/2 months old. We have 3 kids under 3 y/o. Scary at the thought of having to terminate this baby, I can't do it.

I don't believe in termination and the thought of it makes me sick!

We are going to have this baby. Our families are going to think that we are crazy for having another one as they always say that " you two better not be having anymore babies!" I'm scared about what they are going to say but in our minds we just can't terminate!
We love our children too much for words can't say. Our kids are our life and we don't care what other people think! We are both young enought to enjoy our kids! I had our first baby 1 day before I turned 19, then our 2nd baby was 12 months and 1 week after, and our third baby is 17 months after our 2nd baby. So this 4th baby will be at least 12 months 2 or 3 weeks after our 3rd. Scary I know, but I couldn't live with myself for giving up!

Editor's Comment

Wow! you certainly have a full house. I think you are right to continue the pregnancy however hard it will be for you, because you felt so uncomfortable with the option of terminating your pregnancy. In the end this is a decision that you have to live with for the rest of your life, and it is very hard to come to terms with regret if termination goes against your personal values. Whatever family or friends think about you having another baby, it's important that you do what is right for you.
