This is pretty hypothetical at the moment...
Worrying I may be pregnant. This would be less than ideal. Having relationship issues(trying to work through them but still not sure how successful we'll be), we already have 3 children, the youngest is 8 months old. All 3 of my pregnancies have been horrific, resulting in them all being born premature. All natural births though.
I've always been anti-abortion(sorry) unless it was absolutely necessary for the health and well-being of mum or baby. But...
Our house is already too small, our relationship is well, a bit shit, I struggle sometimes with the DCs we already have and the thought of another pregnancy like the others, terrifies me!
I know the 'right' thing to do would be to terminate but I don't think I could live with myself for doing that to one of my babies?! It would undoubtedly haunt me for the rest of my life. Not to mention, I'd be a total hypocrite!
And yes, I realise that I shout POAS at some point soon. Denial/ignorance is bliss...
Apologies for the waffle and well done if you read to the end!

Just bite the bullet and POAS. No need to torture yourself if you're not pg.

If you are pg, then think.
