Hi! I am totally confused... My period was due last Monday. I was on oral contraceptive pill, but was on antibotics for 14 days last month, also went away and didnt take pill a couple of days.
Last Thursday I took a PG test and there was a faint line, I bought a different brand and on Friday morning I got another faint line, went to the DR Friday night and tomorrow morning I am having a blood test to confirm, and will see the DR Tuesday afternoon to discuss my options.
This is so unplanned. I have a son from my ex husband who was totally planned, we tried for 12months and month after month was disappointment, just when I thought I could not fall pregnant naturally I fell pregnant, I was actually seeing a specialist the next week when I found out. It was the most joyous time.
We split up 18months after my son was born! He is now 8.
I have a great job, but parenting on my own is hard and financially while I get paid great, the mortgage repayments, car repayments and daily living costs leave worrying each fortnight how I can make my pay last the fortnight.
I have been seeing my BF for 10months and he has spoken about buying a house for us to live in. I wont sell my place, it is affordable on my salary and my safety net if things dont work out. I am confident they will but I need my safety net.
I told him Friday night and he is shocked, just as I am. I plan everything and so does he. At the moment I cant see beyond the year, usually I can see the plan for my future 5 years in advance.
I am so worried about money. It sounds crazy, but I struggled for the first five years after I separated from my husband and only now feel like I can afford some luxuries in life but this still has me worried fortnight by fortnight.
I am not 100% decided but I'm thinking of keeping this pregnancy because I am 36 years old. I wanted to be pregnant again but when a few more plans were in place - we were living together, had some sort of committment (either house or ring). My partner feels the same.
Now my thoughts are about our relationship...he would prefer terminating and waiting till the plans are in place... he thinks I would get pregnant just as easily again. I am not so sure because of the first time trying.
Does that sound like he is as committed to a relationship as I was? Truthfully maybe I reading too much into it, but I am confused and thinking so much can go wrong with pregnancy later in life... maybe I should risk doing it on my own, but I struggle with one child now financially.
I'm so confused!!!
