I am a 26 year old who found out last week I was pregnant. I had an ultrasound done and they could not see the babies heart beating yet because it is too early. I am scheduled for another ultrasound appointment next Tuesday and a part of me want to go but another part of me doesn't want to.
I come from an extremely religious background and believe in how I was raised. I don't believe in abortion but I have considered it. My boyfriend does not want the child. We can't afford it financially. I would not qualify for any assistance because of mine and his income. We both have our BA degrees so like I said our salaries are apparently too much. We have researched online at the costs of a child and we are short $200 a month for childcare. There is no one that can look after the child for us so we don't have any other options. He said that if he had the money he would want it.
I had even scheduled the appointment for the abortion but did so because I don't want to lose him although it's not what I really want. Everyone says I need to decide what I want and not what he wants. But honestly, I know I can't afford this child.
I am also dying inside cause I want to talk to my mom and tell her, we are really close. I told my boyfriend that I planned on keeping it and he does not seem thrilled at all but neither am I, it's just what I feel is right. I don't know what I am going to do financially......PLEASE HELP!
