Hello, my name is Ashleii. I am almost 15 and going into grade 10. I am with my byofriend, and have been for 9 months. I am figured to be around 26 weeks pregnant and I have not had an ultrasound. No one knows that I am pregnant except for a few close friends and my boyfriend. My parents or family members do not.
Right now my boyfriend and I are considering abortion. But this is something I don't know if I want to do or not. I know I am young, and still have a lot of life ahead of me, but I am just really stuck on what to do.
We went to the Pregnancy Crisis Center today and got to talk to someone, and she is going to make an appointment for us to go see a doctor about abortion.
I do want to talk to my boyfriend some more before making my decision set in stone.
It would really help if I could have someone to talk to, for advice, information, or even just as a friend to talk to.
Thanks for the help.
Hi Ashleii. I honestly couldn't imagine what you are going through right now. It's gotta be so hard. I am going to be 30 in Nov and sometimes feel overwhelmed being preg, and knowing a baby is coming soon. Honestly no one can tell you what to do, its going to be something you have to do yourself. If you think you are 26wks along, that is more then half way through. I dont know how it is where you are, but I don't know of any places that would do one that far along. I think a baby is considered viable (able to have a chance living outside the womb) around 28ish weeks. Is there some type of clinic where you and your boyfriend could go to see a dr? Have you considered adoption as an option? Would your parents be understanding, and help you? You are still really young, and definitely have your whole life ahead of you. Any choice you make is going to stick with you for the rest of your life. I had an abortion when I was about 19 and still think about it from time to time, but I have now have 1 little boy and a little girl on the way and couldn't be happier. I hope you are able to go to the doctors and see how things are progressing and then are able to make the right choice for you. Good luck
