    I mean. If you can deal with a baby and doing studies, keep it. If not. Rip

    Having a baby and going to uni can be done but you will have to take some time off and it will be stressful but if you want to continue with the pregnancy then it would be worth it. There are all kinds of support available for pregnant women and mothers at uni and if you do plan on keeping the baby, it would be wise to look into the support options soon.

    If you don't plan to continue the pregnancy then you have two options, abortion or adoption. I would advise talking to your GP or family planning clinic if you are considering either of these options.

    We can't tell you what to do, only advise you on your options or tell you what we would personally do in that circumstance but ultimately the choice is yours. I would advise talking to someone you trust as well as your partner as it can be a very big burden to keep to yourself while you decide what to do. I know from experience how unexpected pregnancies can be extremely stressful and one of the most daunting things you can face, especially while young but whatever you choose to do, I'm sure it'll be the right decision for you.

    Good luck

    Go and speak to the welfare officer in the SU.

    You will just need to do a pros and cons on whether to keep or not and work out the consequences of each,. the opinion that really matters is yours. Dont get pressured.

    I'd vote not to keep it as it's a heck of a lot of pressure on a uni student with minimal income and a lot of work to manage. Try again when you're out of your degree :cute:

    However it's your call, not mine :3
