Baby Hints & Tips

Dealing with an unexpected pregnancy

Sad woman standing in a field

I have just found out I’m pregnant again. We have two children under two, I’m currently breastfeeding my 6 month old, and we were not planning to have any more children. My first reaction was absolutely shocked, then scared, then excited, then sad. My partner said to me “if we have another baby, it will ruin our relationship. But we will work something out.” I don’t think having another baby is fair on my two children, but I am against having an abortion. I can’t see how I will mentally or physically cope with having another baby. In this past hour I have thought about abortion, adoption, keeping this baby and risking ruining my relationship with my partner, keeping this baby and continuing to breastfeed both my 6mo and then tandem nursing. I have no idea what I’m going to do. Please, I really need to hear some words of encouragement, advice, positivity, negativity, anything. Thank you
