I have just found out I am pregnant I am 9 weeks 2 days, my period is irregular and have just gotten off of the IUD, I was drinking quite frequently last month and have had two binge drinking experiences this month and have been under a lot of stress. After fighting with my boyfriend, it is an incredibly negative and toxic environment, which I am going to end very soon. I am terrified to have a baby by a man I can't stand, and what happens if I have harmed it. I was planning on going back to school, but how can I afford a child and schooling all on my own. I feel so lost, not to mention I already have two children which are finally in school 5 &6, so I thought it was a great opportunity for me to go back as well.
I am not sure whether it is the right time for me to have a child, if it is wrong or unfair of me to bring a child into this world without a father and without me being in a proper financial situation.
Help please, I could really use advice. I was hoping to simplify my life this year, not complicate it. I want an honourable equal relationship that will set a wonderful example for my two children, I am not sure how it will look not being with either fathers and having 3 children with two different fathers. I am really sensitive right now, so please be gentle, not sure I can handle anymore heart break :(
