We had unprotected sex, now I'm pregnant
By anonymous on 23/09/2014So me and my boyfriend have been together for about 4 months... We had unprotected sex after the 3rd month, but weren't trying to start family. Now I'm pregnant.
I told him after I missed my period and took two test. I haven't made it to a clinic yet though, but I am going to be going in a few hours.
We thought of aborting it, but it made us both sad so we changed our minds to adoption. Then it made my family sad and he thought his family would be sad also, but we're not ready for a child as we're both 20 and at the same time we want to keep it until we are ready.
My mother does not wants us to regret giving it up and for both of us to finish college so she told me she would raise it until we're ready. It doesn't seem right to do that to her, but we have so many dreams before we're ready to have a family and they might not be done by 25 or 28.. I worry that even though we're a part of it's life we won't be a whole part because we wouldn't have raised it. Plus my boyfriend now feels a little trapped because I'm pregnant. I don't want him to, but he says he loves me and wants to make this work because he loves me. Now I'm unsure if we'll make it together because I'm pregnant and he feels trapped by it. He says he wants what we have to work out, but then we still have a child to deal with and his whole life has done a 360... What do I do? I don't want him to feel trapped. I want to do right with the baby and him, but I don't want to trap someone I love.
