Comments And Help Please. Abortion Or Not

I've been married for 4 yrs and have 3 children with the same guy. 10 yrs old, 3 yrs old, and 12 months old. After I had my 12 month old I had SEVERE post partum depression and anxiety. I was very suicidal and almost had to be hospitalized. My husband and I are on the verge of divorce since we were married because he is verbally abusive, I had an IUD put in after Nathan and 3 weeks ago I found out it was falling out so they removed it. Now I found out I'm pregnant because it wasn't working right! I am so very against abortion. My husband and ALL of my friends and family want it aborted. I am so scared if I keep it with all the lack of support I may go into a deeper post partum depression and anxiety after and during the pregnancy and then who would take care of my 4 kids! I am not even fully recovered from the ppd I had with nathan, please thoughts and comments! Thanks!

You should do whatever feels right for you and your family.

I am just seeing this now, and am so sorry for you. You will be in my prayers. I so hope that you have chosen to keep the baby, and that healing can be your's. I lost a younger sibling to abortion, which has caused such pain. I pray that your kids will never know that. Either way you will all be in my thoughts and prayers.<br />
If you are interested you may soon read what I wrote about my brother. I will post it in 'my stories' tonight.<br />
Peace be to all of you

Congrats on the pregnancy !<br />

I would go with what you want, if you could not live with yourself after aborting it, it could make your post pardum depression even worse and possibly you could have an even deeper problem. You have to get counselling and mental health support through out this pregnancy and really make an effort to change how you view life. <br />
I believe that terminating this pregnancy could be literally the death of you and how you see yourself. This child is meant to be here, who knows this child could be a blessing in disguise. <br />
If anyone is making ultimatums to you, they obviously do not care of the long term effects that abortion has on you. I will emphasise this again, you need to get some professional help and make every effort to get the depression and anxiety under control. Do not let it dictate to you any longer, I believe that everyone has the power to change and maybe this is the catalyst for you to change the way you see yourself. Whether you need to be medicated to help control this then so be it or need to have medications reviewed to help you in a better way then do that. <br />
I wish you all the best and I hope this little one inside you has a chance to live and breathe in this world. <br />
<br />
Peace<br />
