So I found out that I was pregnant today. My whole world turned upside down. I've always wanted a baby, but later in life. I didn't actually think I would end up falling pregnant. I'm only 19 and my boyfriend and I both go to the same university. I don't know what to do because I am against abortions, but my boyfriend broke down when I told him I was pregnant. It is both our fault as we should have been more careful and we've only been together for just over half a year. He feels like he's too young and not ready to be a dad as he's only 21, and I'm in a predicament because I am going into my second year of university once summer is over. I have already paid a deposit for a house to share with my uni mates. I haven't got anyone I can talk to about it and I don't know what to do. My boyfriend wants me to get rid of it because he's not ready , but the balls in my court and he's getting worried when I said to him I don't know what to do. I spoke to a nurse and she worked out I'm roughly 7 weeks gone, my foetus is the size of a blueberry at this stage! I really don't know what to do and I seriously need some help, I know ideally it's not fair to bring a child into the world when I have no money I'm a student and I have a rubbish job, but at the end of the day it's still a child. I'm so scared of what my family and friends with think but I haven't got long left if I want to terminate it. Advice would be much appreciated x
