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?

It is still so early. Just breath and go in for the tests before making any decisions. There may be absolutely nothing wrong. I would wait for some real solid medical input before making ANY decisions. Keep us updated, I will keep you in my prayers!

Try not to worry about things you don't even know for sure yet. You really don't know if anything will be wrong with the baby at all. Besides, if you don't believe in abortion, this should be a non-issue. You could have a perfectly healthy baby that ended up being a 10 year old with horrible disabilities due to a car wreck or something. We never know what will happen. We just have to do our best with what we are given.
