starting uni in sept but just discovered im pregnant.........help? Watch
I had an abortion when I was 16 and for me, keeping it wasn't something I could have ever considered
being ready for or think about doing so it didn't effect me as much as it probably has others.
I think if there's any doubt in your mind about having an abortion you're quite likely to regret it and that would be a terrible shame.
If you do keep the baby the only thing you would have to think about would be the rise in tuition fees, but tbh by the time you're paying it back, the baby will be slightly older. I'm rambling a bit now but I really do wish you all the best. Take your time to think about this decision. x
Thanks everyone for replying. Its a difficult decision to make - life-changing either way. I personally don't know why i can't be successful at both being a mother and studying if i have support networks in place?? Its not as simple as saying its not the right time for me to have a baby - its a whole different ball game when you can actually feel the changes in your body. I have a supportive family and supportive boyfriend so im not alone but i know that it would be incredibly hard. Im well aware of the cons. Does anybody have any positive suggestions??? x
My friend had a baby in the first term of her university degree, with the help of her parents & now husband the baby was brought up happily and she managed to keep going with her degree. It's very difficult, but not impossible.
I'm pregnant with my second and have decided to go back to university next year. I think it will be difficult but I have support around me. I would ask your university what their policy is on deferring and explain your situation. If they do allow you to defer then I would have your baby see how you feel next year and then make your decision if you do still want to go ahead with uni.
Don't listen to the absolute idiots that have posted on here. Lots of hugs, things will work out for you xxxxxx
I'm utterly shocked by the amount of negative advice given - to tell someone to have an abortion????
Btw OP, take some time and discuss your options with your parents/babys father etc. If you feel you can handle the baby keep it, but if you are unable to support it then terminate it. But don't let anyone tell you whats right or wrong, its your future we're talking about.
