Day 28: What If You Were Pregnant, What Would You Do?

I'd most certainly be shocked.

I could never consider an abortion.  I just couldn't.  A baby would be too beautiful to do that.  I'm an adoptee, so if there was no way for me to feasibly keep the baby, I'd give it up for adoption.  I can't say that I'd want to go that route, but I'm not financially prepared to support a baby.  Nor are The Writer and myself at a place in our relationship where we are ready to be parents.  We're not ready for the stuff that usually comes before parenthood.  I know he'd be there for me, that's for sure, but I wouldn't agree to marriage, should it be laid on the table, simply because there was a baby.

I'd do what I had to do, as I've seen so many of my friends do.  Each situation is unique, so it's impossible to create a plan based on a "what if".

Interesting post. I had the misfortune of going through an abortion as a teenager and it was completely devastating to me...perhaps the only regret I have in my life.

The second time I got pregnant (Sept. 2009), I decided to keep it, and now my little guy is going to be a year old next month and makes my life happy every day.

You're right, though. Everyone's situation is different, and every situation is unique. You have to do what's best for you at the time, I guess.

I'd have a heart attack if I found out I was pregnant. I'm married, so it wouldn't be an issue of "would the dad be around," but neither my husband or myself are anywhere near ready for a baby. Financially? We'd survive. But mentally? Oh dear lord no.

I couldn't have an abortion's just not an option for me. I could never punish a baby because I wasn't prepared.

And, I mean, married people don't really give up babies, do they?

So, I guess we'd just have to do a lot of growing up really darn fast.
