I just found out that I am about 2 months prego. I took like 5 pregnancy test and they all came out negative so I thought my lack of a period was just from getting off birth control. So in those two months I have drank and gone to clubs, taken Quicktrim, restarted my brith control (about a months worth) and was sick so I was taking over the counter medicines that were harmful to the baby. My doc told my that I am at a very high chance of my baby having birth defects or not even making it to term. I have to go for a sonogram and a bunch of other tests. I would have never done these things had I known. I have a wonderful 2 year old that I took such good care of in the womb and out. I am so worried. So hear is my worry. They may tell me to terminate my pregnancy now or they may say I have a chance of having the baby. I am afraid that if they tell me to continue on but are not certain, should I terminate anyway. Because I really want to allow this child to have the health it deserves and not make it live a tough life. I am roman catholic and dont believe in abortion personally, but I fear for this childs well-being. what should I do?
