This pregnancy wasn't planned and we weren't hoping to get another child until he was 3years old but plans obviously didnt work out. I am currently unemployed so my boyfriend was the bread winner of ourfamily for couple months now, in a next week or maybe 2 i will be working and we would have a little bit of a finacial break and pay off what we need to pay off. The problem is my boyfriend doesn't want us to keep this baby because he say's he's not ready to go through another financial situation with another baby and he suggests that i have an abortion. I strongly believe that we can afford this baby as long as we save for the next 9 months and try to budget ourselves as much as possible, and also the fact that we have lots of cupport from my mom and friends. He cannot see my point of view and the fact that I do not want to have an abortion or do I even want to hurt him on the other end. I feel like either way i will be hurting someone either myself or him and even my unborn child. Please HELP!!

Keep your baby. It may not be planned, but God will turn it into a blessing if you're following Him. I'm so sorry your boyfriend feels the way he does, and I understand, babies are expensive... but in the end, really, the medical bills don't HAVE to be paid in full right away.

It is a definite plus that you have family support! If he does not warm up to the idea of a new baby .. Could you manage two kids with the help of both grandma's? If the answer is yes, I would suggest you wait it out.

Please don't abort your baby that is never the answer. I am sure your boyfriend is just scared and rightfully so if you are already struggling. Some men do come around after they get use to the idea. The worst thing that can happen is you end up having your baby on your own. Do you have family support?
