Facing a Problem Pregnancy
Facing a problem pregnancy decision can be a stressful experience. Just when you need to be able to think clearly, your hormones emotions, fatigue or nausea associated with being pregnant create ‘brain drain’ and confusion.
Just when you need the people who are most important to you to be there for you, you find that they cannot handle the whole situation and are either panicking or backing away, or you feel that this is too personal or private to even let them know about. Just when you thought you knew what was going on in your life – wham! – A major change of plan?
Once you recognise that you are basically in a “no win” situation in which the Fickle Hand of Fate has been a prime player, you may be able to stop beating yourself over the head, stop questioning your normality, self-worth, competence or goodness, and work out what no other person can do for you: How to deal with the pregnancy and take responsibility for your decisions and their consequences.
You have two decision options – continue your pregnancy, or terminate your pregnancy.
