Mommy of 5 and 7 weeks pregnant with 6th...HELP!
05/17/2013 at 14:21 PM

My husband and I are 25 years old and we have a 9,7,5,3, and a 8 month old. We became parents at the age of 15 and it seemed like every two years they kept on coming. Which was fine with us, I had graduated high school a year early and was working and going to school and he has also did the same. Anyways, I had my last menstrual cycle March 27th 2013 and on April 21st we had unprotected sex. The next day I went and bought the morning after pill to decrease the chance of me getting pregnant. (I am currently enrolled in college and doing my prereq for the RN program) So having a baby now was not in the picture. We talked about it and in 5 years seemed like a good time for us. Plus our youngest is only 8 months. Well after I took the pill I felt so guilty and ashamed of myself, and I prayed and prayed for I do not believe in abortions and also if you play the game you pay the consequences. A week later I started spotting but nearly nothing. So I took a pregnancy test and there were two lines but the second line was super light nearly nothing. I was in shock so I went to buy 4 more and it comes to that I am expecting. I haven't told anybody not even my husband. I have been stressing so much about this I just felt the need to write it down and get some positive feedback. I know everything will work out as it always does. I am just scared and I feel so guilty for my little one.

Sweetie, let me tell you something. I understand how you are feeling. I am not as young as you are, but I am now pregnant with my 5th child and I had gotten accepted into college to do my prerequisites for nursing as well. I then had to withdraw, because I have been so sick for last 3 months....I thought to myself, there was no way that I can attend school as sick as I have been. I wasn't excited about having another child, but God knows what's going to happen before we do. So I take it as it's a blessing. I have been so sick, that I considered an abortion as well, but I am thankful that I didn't go through with it. I am now 18 weeks and 4 days pregnant, and just want my due date to come and I can not be sick anymore and I can hold my baby in my arms. If you need to talk, feel free to reply :-)

I know how you feel... I am a mommy of 4 children my youngest is 3 years old. I became pregnant with my 3 year old when my 3rd child turned 1 month old only. Imagine my shock... I was jobless and my husband just started a new job. But I keep the baby... it was hard with the finances but we survived. She's now 3 years old and asking me if she can go to ballet. Keep praying and trust that God has good plans to you and your family.
