    Default I know it's for the best...but still feel so sad.

    I just found out yesterday that the morning after-pill failed me ( and that was only taken as a back-up for 'coitus interuptus' - but that's how paranoid I was to avoid pregnancy. It is either this or the condoms failed...my story is in teh unwanted pregnancy forum) anyway , we have decided on a termination - I have two children 2 and 4 and I don't think my mental health would stand throwing another child into our already chaotic lives. Anyway - even though I know this is the best thing for everyone, I still feel so sad about it. Not sad that I am having the termination but sad that , at this time in our lives, this is what is best for my family, my children, my marraige. Does that make sense? I had a termination at 15 and it never felt like this...what have other people felt in similiar sitruations? How did you feel afterwards? I am 36, have a happy stable family, we manage to provide the things we think are important for our children, life is just getting back to normal after having the two kids, another child is not that impracticle, it's just not is what is best and we always try and make the best decisions for the family. But even knowing that...I just feel so sad about having to make this decision.

    I just thought I'd update and I have decided to keep the baby...it'll turn everything upside down once again but I just can't terminate this pregnancy. So...if you see me posting things in other areas - it'll make sense now! Thanks for your kind words.
