Talk with your partner about how he really feels. And dont forget there is a lot of support out there for you if you need help.
Having said that, raising children is hard, and raising children with special needs even harder, but there is so much support available nowadays to help you cope, and if that is your decision to keep your baby, your partner and family should respect that and support you. Don't let them quilt you into something you might regret for the rest of your life.
All the best, and stay strong smile
But you will be able to cope with two. You will be able to be a great Mum to both babies.
2ndly what an awful thing for your dh to say. shame on him.
my advice is that sometimes in life things happened and we don't understand ehy or we can't see the big picture. this baby was meant to be, you fell pregnant while on contraception, that to me says that this baby is a blessing not a burden.
yes, it will be tough and maybe even a struggle but i'm sure you will get through it. if your dh/family won't be supportive seek out online groups/forums or a special support group to help you cope.
good luck with whatever you decide.
When you build a house, every brick counts. When you build a character, every thought counts.
It might not seem like the appropriate thing to say... but it's nice when ppl are excited for you... even random faceless strangers smile
Just going from my own experience, it made me really angry how often people made abortion out to be a quick an easy solution to a problem (It wasn't for me!). It frustrated me that people saw my decision to have the baby as some sort of unnecessary drain on my life.
If you have made the decision then it's important that you are happy with it and focus on the positives. If you allow yourself to be excited then others will come around. If you're going to manage in the future, you'll need all the support you can get!
You need to sit down with your partner & talk about this. He maybe feeling pressure from his family.
Do not do something that you do not feel is right & if you listen to them you may feel like you maded a mistake.
If you know you can cope with another baby then you can cope.
