38 yrs old---Unplanned 8 wks along with Twins
Tue, 07-31-2012 - 5:40pm

I wanted to share my story...even though things seem to be going better.

I have been dating my boyfriend for 8 months....things have gone will, only a few bumps.  On July 4th I was out on his boat when I realized my period was 2 days late.  I went home that night and took a pregnancy test....truly thinking it would be negative.  (I have been on the pill for like 12 yrs now!)  It was POSITIVE!  My instint reaction was to say "bull****" and throw it away.  I started drinking a big glass of water and took a 2nd test about an hour later....also positive.

I then went into a state of panic and called my best friend.  I headed to Walgreens and bought the most expensive tests they have available. Two more of those came up positive.  I cried myself to sleep that night....and cried non-stop for the next 5 days.  I went to my first appt alone and cried through THAT too!

I waited 2 days to tell my boyfriend....his response was NOT positive.  He was angry and immediately decided we should abort it..

In the last 3 wks he has gone the opposite direction...becoming very supportive.  We have almost all my belongings moved into his house now. 

I am still coming to terms with my 'beans' and the fact that my life is about to change forever.  I think I am stuck in a place somewhere close to exceptance....though still haven't reached a place of 'joy'

It would seem every day brings a new set of worries....things that never occured to me before.

Oh my goodness- congrats on your double blessing. I can imagine that twins had to be quite shocking since the pregnancy alone was so unplanned. I'm glad to hear that your boyfriend has become quite supportive. That's a wonderful sign and I hope it continues throughout your pregnancy and beyond. Thanks for sharing with us and please stop by often to let us know how you are doing. HUGS!

Hi there-I don't know where to start-I have mixed emotions- I have a four year old girl and  a 7months old girl-last night after I missed my period around the 15th of October I decided to do a pregnancy test and it was positive. me and my husband had planned to have two kids only-and he is very happy with his two girls and he supports me and loves me big time. When I told him the news yesterday he said-''oh my God what are we going to do'' and later on he came to me saying we must have an appointment with the doctor and enquire about abortion. To be honest that is the last thing on my mind-it's not even on my mind-when I saw the test results I just had this picture of my 3rd baby on my mind-cuddling and having good time with all three of them. But my husband doesn't seem ready for the third edition at all. Will I survive if I go on with abortion-the answer is a big NO NO NO. I want my baby-no matter what. I don't know waht this will do to our relationship but Iam keeping my baby period.

How are you?  Did you ever make a decision to terminate?   I hope things are going well for you.
