I am pregnant with my 6th child and don't know what to do

I’m pregnant with my 6th child and don’t know what to do. So I recently found out I was pregnant. We take precautions to avoid pregnancy, so it was definitely a surprise. I had talked to my husband, and we had decided it would be best not to have the baby. Well, when I went in, I found out I was 18 weeks, and When they told me that I knew there was no way I would be able to do that. We are not in a position to have another baby right now. Things are very tight as it is. Could we make it work? I’m sure we could. When I brought up adoption to my husband, he was downright against it. He says if we’re going to have the baby, we’re going to keep the baby. I don’t even know how I’d live with myself already having five children and giving the 6th one up for adoption. I’m terrified. I’m already stretched so thin between my other 5, and keeping up with the house and working. I don’t know where I’ll pull the strength or energy or finances for another one. One thing is for sure after this baby is born getting my tubes tied because this is the second time I’ve gotten pregnant with an iud. Any advice or encouragement would be appreciated thank you.

You will regret adoption. I would get your tubes tied after baby no.6 and make it work. It ultimately is your decision, but after having 5 kids and not having the 6th, it will likely cause you immense emotional pain as it has to others I know.

My Mom did that with much regret.Make sure you can take care of them.Pray for you.God has a plan trust him.

Just breathe. I am also pregnant with my 6th and number 5 was going to be the last one. It might be a little bit of a struggle but you’ll be fine. :sparkling_heart: I know firsthand it’s scary. But if you guys work together and just stay positive everything will work itself out. I’m looking at it like, one more will be a bit of a struggle, but it won’t kill us…and, I’m also getting my tubes tied. Closing shop. Think of it more as a blessing than a bad thing. Good luck :sparkling_heart:

Your surprise baby will be the most wonderful gift and the absolute perfect blessing you will never regret

It may be tight. But where there’s a will. God will make Away. I had my 4th child and didn’t find out I was pregnant until I was 4 1/2 months. I was totally against it for several reasons. My baby is 25 and I can’t imagine Her not being here.

start saving your pennies now. Go to local food banks. Go to your churches. Rally your friends and family together and have one hell of a baby shower and on top of baby is, ask each person to bring one household item or something. Eli and friends and family 2 bring dishes and help with laundry and the kids when you have the baby. Where there is a will, there is a way. God bless you and good luck.

It’s a person that you will love and adore. Do not kill this child because it is inconvenient.

I was that way myself, had a surprise baby… if your husband is wanting to keep the baby and you there are things that are possible… for me, we’re looking into other jobs that pay higher to help even if it considers us to move… I’ve got a 7 yr old daughter as well and hate to make that choice on moving, but you do what you gotta do for your family… hopefully something comes up for you guys, don’t give up! If you’re needing assistance in looking for work for either one, look into some workforce companies, they’ll be able to help. Plus I was a former case worker assisting in helping look for work. Let me know what area you’re in and I’ll be glad to help :slight_smile:

All babies are a blessing. It takes a strong women to have 5 children work and keep up with the house but god makes no mistakes. Your pregnant for a reason. God Wouldn’t give you this if you couldn’t handle it. Count your blessings.

You will make it work because that’s what we do as parents. I would ask for help whether its family, church or friends. Dont worry you will be okay…just love this little human just like the others!!

Well I suggest you both start looking for better paying jobs or just have him go with you to an adoption counselor and just hear what they have to say you can even choose the family your child goes to
