Hi, I'm a long time reader, first time poster
2 days ago my SIL found out she was pregnant, she had a dating ultrasound yesterday, which came back at 14w 3days (date yet to be confirmed by the dr - this is what the ultrasound lady told us)
Immediately SIL said she wants to have a termination.
after calling up a few clinics, looks like the max weeks they will do is 15 +6, so she/we really need to get out skates on if she wants to go ahead.
We told her partner yesterday, and showed him the ultrasound pic we got to keep, he was shocked, but over the moon and wants to keep the baby.
I'm feeling that she is actually unsure if she wants to terminate or not...so I have tried to get her counciling, to discuss her options, and so she knows her options. But can not get an appt until next Friday (which would make her like 15w+)
I have told her the costs, quotes varied from $700 - $885. And that I'm unable to pay this, as I can not afford it and my cc is maxed out. SIL and bil live with me dp and dd.
Also just some back ground info on her, she's only 16 and has been on the depo shot, and has been with her partner for over 1yr.
I'm not too sure what to do, or how to help so any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
I'm also unsure of how to give advice as I was meant to terminate dd but me and dp couldn't go through with it ( went to the clinic, but couldn't go in)
