I am 27 years old almost 11 weeks pregnant and I still can't decide if I want to keep the baby or not.

Hi Lisa!

Personally? I think every baby is a miracle. And, yes, they are a lot of work but they are soooo much love and happiness. I bet if you talked to your girlfriends, you'd find that most of their guys have as many shortcomings as yours does. If you give him a chance, I bet he'd make an excellent dad. Can you sit down and talk to him about your concerns and instead of making them his shortcomings, make them your own, if possible? Something like, I'm worried that we won't be able to give the baby the attention he/she needs because of all of our outside activities and list something you do?

Let us know how it's going!

Honestly I think you know your options but I want to throw this out there..If you decide to give birth to the baby you don't necessarily have to raise it..But I can tell you from experience that the min you look at your child no matter how unplanned it he or she is they find a place in your heart..As far as the fathers shortcomings..He is a man after all..LOL..Im currently pregnant with my third unplanned child(I am the epic birth control fail story) and I wouldnt change it for the world..Give yourself some time to think it over..You may be glad you did..Good luck in whatever you decide to do..

Hello, I am 27 and pregnant with 2nd unplanned child.. I was on birth control for 3 years he didn't want this either.. I couldn't decide what to do I didn't want this at all but now I am so excited!! What changed all this going with all my beliefs in not abortion and knowing I was the one that done this not the baby.. You do what you believe in and what you think is right!! If you keep it, abort it, adoption ya know it is your decision not anyone elses!!

GOOD LUCK
