I most admit that with my 1st pregnancy i wasn't ready or just didn't wanted a baby, but when i saw that my husband was happy and we had great jobs and enjoyed our romance as a couple plus i am the oldest child from 4 and y mom was really sick and i though that my mom was going to enjoyed the news and maybe get better( thank god she did) so my mind change and make the decision continued with it and now i am almost in baby #3

PRAY! IF YOUR INTERESTED OR IN NEED OF A PRAYER PARTNER I AM HERE FOR YOU. THERE ARE OPTIONS AND SUPPORT. WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? GOD HAS A PLAN EVEN WHEN WE CANT SEE IT. I KNOW A WONDERFUL COUPLE WHO CANT HAVE CHILDREN THEY WOULD LOVE TO ADOPT. EVERBODY HAS BEEN CREATED IN GOD IMAGE AND HAS LIFE THE MOMENT HE/SHE IS CONCIEVED. PLEASE THINK AND HOPEFULLY YOU CAN TALK WITH SOMEONE. IF YOU ABORT YOU HAVE TO LIVE WITH THAT ALL YOUR LIFE. WHEN GOD ENTRUSTS US WITH A CHILD IT IS THE BIGGEST BLESSING GREATEST JOB AND MINISTRY EVER!

You have options, depending on how far along you are there is the option of aborting the baby. I know that (especially here) this subject is taboo, but it's an honest option. I could personally never do it, but I also realize it's not my place to tell people what to do with their bodies. And I know that a lot of people let their personal beliefs get in the way of giving all the information.

Another option would be to carry the baby to term and then allow a family who hasn't been as fortunate to share your blessing. There are many people out there who try for years and can't seem to have a baby for many reasons, it would truly be a gift to those families to allow them to share in what you have made.

The final option is for you to get ready, I know that sounds a little callous but the reality of it is that you made this blessing and it is yours. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and maybe this was just meant to be for you. If you're worried about not having the money, there are programs for that. If you don't have a support system there are MANY ways to build one.

Whatever decision you make, I truly hope it results in you being the happiest and healthiest you can.

A baby is a blessing, & if you're not ready to be a mom you can give your baby up for adoption. I would gladly adopt your baby since my husband & I have been trying for 5yrs & can't seem to have one, but really a baby is a blessing, & you should consider yourself lucky. ..there are so many people out there (like myself) who would love nothing more than to have a baby.

I know how overwhelming finding out your pregnant can be, especially if the pregnancy was unexpected. I suggest actually writing out the reasons why you don't want to have a baby then a few days later review the reasons with some close friends/family members you trust and talk about the reasons. Are the reasons fear of the unknown?

The choice of what to do is ultimately yours to make. I just urge you to not rush into decision.

If you don't want your baby, or if you can't take care of him or her... there is plenty of support for you, and probably even more families looking for a new addition they could not have on their own. A lot of hospitals and nonprofit clinics have are safe drop-off zones for a child you are giving up for adoption.

If you're worried about taking care of your child, know there is a lot of support out there who will help house and feed you and baby until you can get on your feet

Each decision comes with its own emotional and physical difficulties... which you need to be prepared for. Pregnancy and abortion are not easy roads and with either decision you are going to need support.

Well, does the daddy want the child?? I mean it's really up to the two of you. But i say no abortion because there's always adoption. I mean i would keep your child if i was you.
