Your Life Isn’t Over If You’re Facing An Unplanned Pregnancy

Being pregnant when you didn’t want to can be frightening. Being pregnant with someone who you didn’t want to be pregnant with can be horrifying. Life can throw us curve balls, but a crisis pregnancy can feel like life throwing a 10-ton boulder at you. You just want to reverse the decisions you made. There is hope. Breathe. Think. Your life isn’t over. Consider the following:

  1. Your baby has a future.

You may think your life is over, but the fact is, your baby’s life is just beginning. An unborn baby has brain waves at 7 weeks, a heartbeat at 7 weeks, and can feel pain at 20 weeks. Your baby is beginning to recognize your voice. If you have an abortion, all that will end. That life will be over. Maybe there is another family out there that would be overjoyed to adopt your baby. That baby may grow up to become president or develop the cure for cancer. Rest assured, you may have made a mistake, but your baby is not a mistake.  Your child has a purpose and a future.

  1. You still have a future

Believe it or not, you still have a future. Even with a young one in tow. You can still finish school, you can still get a job, and you can still date with a child. You can still start your own business and still follow your dreams. Some of your plans may have to be delayed and pushed further down the road. But delay is not a bad thing. You still have a future.

  1. Surround yourself with good, positive people

If you don’t know what to do and need some advice you need to know who to trust. Is your family supportive? Is the father’s’ family supportive? Seek their advice and support if it’s in your baby’s best interest. If not, seek out the faith community or the community at large for help. There are lots of people that will help you raise your baby. You don’t have to raise your child alone.

Your baby is a blessing in disguise. They will bless you and the people around you. Don’t let a temporary situation turn into a permanent mistake. Consider adoption. Consider raising your child with help. Your life is just beginning. And so is theirs. | Sitemap | Privacy Policy | Terms of Service
