Hello Dear Jade,
A very warm and caring welcome to our forums..
I really am so sorry about what your going through...
Jade, sweetheart...it’s your body, your baby...you and only you has the right to decide what you want to do with your body...
Your words... you had an instant connection and you are ready to love and support your unborn child shows how much love you already have for him/her....
I don’t think your selfish at all...you need to follow your heart...and not let anyone else decide what you want to do.... letting your boyfriend decide for you, is so wrong...maybe later on in months or years to come, you may feel regret...It’s a decision dear Jade that you must be 100% sure of...if you do decide to terminate...
Follow your heart and soul, maybe try talking to your boyfriend again and let him know how you feel...
We are all here for you dear Jade, if you feel up to talking some more....
My kindest thoughts, with my care,
Hello Jade, hope you are still checking your post and wondering how you are going, because more care should have been taken by your boyfriend if he didn't want you to fall pregnant.
Although a joint decision may be needed, you have to make the final choice because you will feel it's little feet moving around inside you and need to decide whether or not you want to keep it.
Do you have family you could talk to? What about your doctor? You might find counselling will help you, do please ask your local GP.
You need support and help making such a big decision. Raising a child alone is a big responsibility and so is terminating a pregnancy, so please do get some support and advice from qualified people.
