pregnant again

I have a 8 month old baby and my period is now 8 days late. Im usually 1/2 days late and have only been later when I was pregnant with my lo. I took at test 4 days after I was late but came up negative. Im not on the pill as found it really messed up my periods after pregnancy so just used condoms. as far as me and my boyfriend are aware it hadn't ripped. Im worried to take another test incase it comes positive as I don't know how I would cope with another baby. But I wouldn't abort it as I don't believe in them.

advice please

Hi Jen,

Firstly congratulations on your 8 month old baby. As for your late period I really do think it would be a good idea to take another test sooner rather than later so that you can put your mind at rest. Perhaps you could do the test with a friend or your partner as I always feel its nicer to have someone around for that sort of a thing so they can support you depending on the outcome. Sometimes the stress and worry that comes with waiting for your period can often be the reason it is delayed in the first place. I really hope you are ok. Xx
