Deciding on what to do with an unwanted pregnancy can be an emotional experience. Everyone’s circumstances or reasons (finances, rocky relationship, hate children, the list goes on) are different. I would suggest you do what feels right for you and your situation. The choice is 100% yours to make.

As for me, I will take the leap of faith and have the baby, if me and my partner are in a good and healthy relationship. As they say, nothing can be wrong with the life you spent with a person you love, even when a baby is in the midst. Methinks some of the things we worry about will eventually sort themselves out as we solider along. If we all have to wait until everything is situated before we decide to have a baby, that means no one will have ever have a baby. Having a baby even when you are ready means you got to redo your family budget in addition to putting your independent self on the shelf for a while.

I can't bring myself to have an abortion so I would do the same. Raising children is difficult and expensive and no one is ever really prepared for it. I just know that if most people waited for the right time, they would never have kids and later regret it. I think this kind of choice would be harder for people in new relationships though or ones that are not healthy. I am happily married though so if it happened, I would only have concerns about finances.

The choices here are very limited. And there is nothing like "the right time to be a parent". Once it is confirmed that you are pregnant, that is the right time to change one's mindset and start working hard towards being a parent. There is really no turning back at this stage. You just have to get used to the situation and learn to be a parent. There is no reverse or pause button to this one.
