i just recently found out i was 2 months preg. i already have a 2 yr old,i havent told my bf yet for he doesnt want me to have any more kids. We used protection and i was told i couldnt have any more kids but here i am 2 months preg. i weight between 102 lbs and 103 lbs at 5'5. Well my doctor wants to see me tomorrow to discuss our options b/c he said if i was to go thru with this pregnancy i would end up killing me, the baby or both for my disease is progressing tremously. i dont believe in abortions im a strong disbeliever for that and a part of me wants to have this baby but i want to live too. i already have had 1 miscarriage and i dont know what to do.Any advice or opioions would be greatly appreciated. what do i do? do i take the chance and have the baby which i doubt will happen im thinking ill miscarry again since i cant keep food down, all the meds im on and on top of that how sick i get very easy,plus i have a iron insuffiency,pancreas insuffiency and vitamins insuffiency. i take 4 to 6 treatments a day, 10 pancreas enyems 3 times daily,most likely will be put on a gtube at nite and oxygen, reglan and zantac 4 times daily,and a lung transplant here in a couple years(so they say). they give me to live til 35  but not much longer :( what should i do?
please help

Hi Faithfull. this is probably the most important decision you'll ever have to make. What about your b.f.? Please include him in the decision making if its at all possible.Sweetie you have to take a serious look at how the cards are stacked. You seem to be already thinking you'll miscarry but what if you don't. I don't believe in abortion either but you have to look at the whole picture & in this case follow your heart. My heart & prayers go out to you.Did you ask your Dr. about the effects of your meds on your unborn child? Let us know what you decide no-one can make this decision for you but we can support the decision you make. God Bless.later....

I don't necessarily support abortion either. But I do teach school and teach many students that are not cared for physically or emotionally and it is so sad.  Your situation is much different.  I would look at the entire picture and make a prayerful decision.  Seems as if your plate is already full right now.

Faithful, Bless Your Heart!

You have alot on your mind to deal with and I can feel your dilemma.  I have to agree with everyone's comments.  Pray about this, you alone, asking what is the best situation for you, your pregnancy and your condition.  I know there will be a insight to whats best. 

Best of luck and we are here to help you along your way!.
