I am 26 years old and just found out I am pregnant. I have a boyfriend of 6 months who is the same age. We both work full time, but don't make much money. I still live at home with my mom and adult brother who has severe lung damage that prevents him from working outside the house. My boyfriend and I have talked a lot about what to do, and he definitely does not think it would be smart to have the baby, because we don't live together and money is so tight. I can't help but feel like we are so much better off than so many people who have healthy babies and are wonderful parents that those aren't valid excuses. I think I want this baby, but I know that people around me will think it's a bad idea because nobody thought it would happen like this for me. I have scheduled an abortion for next week, but I literally can't sleep because of it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
