20 weeks pregnant and boyfriend has left.

I am 20 weeks pregnant and my boyfriend left me for no reason and went back to his girlfriend who is older than him.
I found out I was pregnant when I was 6 weeks pregnant and I begged him that I wanted to have an abortion as I was not ready for a second child. As hard as it is I am keeping my baby and I even know it's a little baby boy. I am working and just bought a car, and hope God will forgive me for having those thoughts of killing my baby.

Editor's Comment

You have made a brave decision to have your baby when your boyfriend has left. I hope that you have some support around you. You still feel guilty about having wanted an abortion early in the pregnancy, but the important thing is to look ahead now and prepare for your new baby.find a centre for pregnancy support in your area.
