    Well the guy is clearly a giant douche. So that sucks.

    I feel for you. You're right, no one knows how they'll feel until they're in this situation. And then they still don't know. Just keep that in mind when you hear judgmental tripe from people. You may hear judgmental tripe no matter what you do.

    It doesn't sound to me like you want to terminate this pregnancy, so maybe get excited!

    The only thing I would do is talk to a specialist about the possible effects of the morning after pill on your baby. That might be important.

    One of the mums in my mother's group had a very similar age gap with two older children (11 and 16) and a now one year old. The baby is seriously the light of her siblings' lives and you can see just how much both older children have taken to a baby joining the family. The situation is slightly different because the baby was planned with a new partner, but I thought I'd share.

    Personally I thought I'd have to have an abortion when we fell pregnant by accident (I was on the BCP but it failed due to health reasons that were unknown at the time). It was a huge adjustment to my life, career, and the relationship was very very new. After a weekend of knowing about the pregnancy I didn't feel okay to terminate and neither did my partner and we've now got a one year old son. Even if the relationship hadn't worked out and I raised him myself, I can't regret having my son because he's added so much to my life.

    I hope you're content with whatever decision you make and have support if your family and friends either way.

    With all of this said, please do use barrier protection with future sexual partners unless you trust them to not have STIs. If it's a latex allergy issue there are so many latex free condoms on the market.

    Hey @LagoonK I am going ok, had a bad weekend breaking the news to my Father...he didnt take it too good, he thinks i should have a Termination and apparently he won't accept it, which got me doubting myself and my decision. I had a good chat today with a lovely friend and she put a few things in perspective for me.
    Im hoping he will eventually come around. He is the only one with negativity about this, but he has always been a negative person in general. ****s him really, that i have always been so positive and confident

    Apart from that i had U/S on Friday and everything looks normal and a nice strong heartbeat, and extreme morning (allday) sickness!
    Thank you for checking in i appreciate it x
