Are you facing an unexpected pregnancy? Each year, millions of women face an unplanned pregnancy and are left with a big decision. Deciding what to do about an unplanned pregnancy is an extremely important and difficult process. There are a number of options to consider including parenting, adoption or abortion.
If you think you might be pregnant, the first step is taking a pregnancy test and confirming your results. Once you know you are pregnant, gather important facts and decide which option if best for you. Only you can decide what choice is right but some people find it helpful to talk through their options. Pick a trusted friend or family member that will be supportive and unbiased in the decision making process. You may also find it easier to write things down and clarify your thoughts.
When you tell people you are pregnant, expect plenty of advice and opinions. While many people mean well, their suggestions can be uninformed and erratic. Because emotions are running high for both you and your family members, rational thinking is often thrown out the window. For your friends and family, this is a temporary issue. For you, this is a life-changing situation. There are a number of choices and possible solutions to make for you and your baby and it is ultimately your decision.
An option for unplanned pregnancy is adoption. If you choose adoption, you will be able to fulfill your goals for life while knowing that your baby is cared for and loved. This decision is yours and is probably the most serious choice of your life. Take your time and do what you think is right without letting others rush you into a decision.
