6 weeks pregnant, found out 2 weeks ago when my period was a little late.

Have 2 wonderful DC at school and preschool, but am a single mum.

Started a relationship 3 months ago, my first 'healthy' relationship in many years, with a lovely man. It's been moving at a lovely slow pace (well obviously not that slow!!) in many respects and we're enjoying getting to know each other. Thought we had been careful, I have always been very fertile though, but no excuse; it was irresponsible. He hasn't met the children yet (I had planned on about a year/18 months or so in, if we are still together).
He reacted amazing, told me he would support whatever I decided to do and had been very concerned about how I'm feeling (stark contrast to previous relationships), but I've known him 3 months!

Decided after talking it through with him that a termination was the right option.

So it was decided. I just don't know if I can do it. Physically.

The only other time I was in this position (and got as far as having the tablets in my hand) was five years ago. Beautiful and amazing DD is now standing in front of me with a blanket on her head making ghost noises! Best decision of my life.

Oh god, I don't know what to do.

Do you want another child? Do you think you could make it work? I know it sounds so clinical but you kind of have to weigh up your options and decide what is best for you and no-one else.

It's a shit situation to be in and there are no right or wrong answers really which makes it even harder. flowers
