Hey fine people!
I just found out I was pregnant a few weeks ago. Now I'm having a really hard time figuring out what to do. :/ Me and my boyfriend were talking about it and he said that he would be fine with whatever decision I made. That being said, I feel like he knows that I don't really 'need' a child right now, but I'm having a hellish time making the decision to abort. Part of me doesn't even want to have an abortion, but I feel like in the long run it will be the best decision for both of us. I know this may sound silly, but I feel like we'd be embarrassed by having a child so early. I'm 24 and he's 25 and we both went to college together and none of our college friends have kids yet, but some of them are married. I feel like I'd be looked down upon for getting pregnant outside of being pregnant, and then actually having a child. I know, I know! It's my life, but I can't but think about the embarrassment it would cause. I know a child is a whole lot of work, but I don't think we're 'not ready' financially, I'm a teacher and he's a lawyer, and together we make well over 100k, but money's not the main issue. I want to travel, see the world, go on road trips, further my career, and I don't think I'll be able to do those things with a child. The logical part of me is saying have an abortion, there are too many cons, and I can probably have a child in a few years. The (I'm assuming) hormonal part of me is saying, keep it, it could turn out to great thing. But I don't know. How did you guys make your decisions regarding keeping/aborting your pregnancies?
