Hi,
I have a son who will be 5 on Halloween and a daughter who is 9 months. There is a possibility I am pregnant with # 3 and I'm a little nervous about it. My son is starting kindergarten in the fall and I was really looking forward to taking him to school and picking him up everyday but if I am pregnant again I will need to work for a few months at least so I can get my mat leave. I'm going to take another test in a few weeks because according to my estimation I am only 2 weeks, almost 3 weeks along. I have been having most of the first pregnancy signs already and I'm fairly certain I am....Just looking for support or anything if anyone else has been through this or something similar.

Welp, depending on where you live you know you have three options when it comes to pregnancy. Keep, adopt or terminate. Write a list of pros and cons for each choice and this may help you determine which option is best for you.

I chose to only have one child because as one of three children I noticed my parents were constantly stressed, overwhelmed and seemed angry all the time.

Things to consider:
-Are you financially capable of supporting a 3rd child?
-Do you have daycare available in your area?
-What if the child has a disability or severe health problem? Do you have the resources and the income available to attend to that? You may have to leave your job if there is a severe enough issue.
-How does the father feel about a 3rd child?
-Do you feel that you are emotionally prepared to cope with the stress of having three children?
-Do you feel that you are physically prepared to cope with pregnancy so soon?
-If you chose abortion or adoption will you be able to live with those decisions?
-If you chose adoption is there a reputable agency you could speak with?
-If you chose abortion is it legal in your area and is there a reputable hospital you could have the procedure done at?
-Is your vehicle equipped to handle 3 car seats, will you need to buy a new vehicle?

These are all important things to consider. Make the best choice for you and for your family. :)
