a couple of weeks ago i found out that i was pregnant. i'm now 11 weeks along. and of course the option of having an abortion crossed my mind. now as a catholic i was raised being taught that abortion is a sin, but i wasn't sure if i was ready for motherhood. when i got all the facts about what actually goes on in an abortion procedure i was horrified and immediately knew i could never do that to my baby. I come from a very large irish family and so far the only one who knows of my pregnancy is my mom. at first she warmed up to the idea that i would be keeping it and offered all the support i would need until i figured out how to do things on my own. but now shes suddenly changed her mind and refuses to talk to me about anything related to the baby. it's hard because even though i didn't plan to have this baby, its still an exciting and confusing time in my life and i need somebody to talk to about all my hopes and fears and just the general experience of being pregnant. My friends who know about my pregnancy are all away at college leaving me with virtually nobody to talk to about what im going through, and i've never felt more alone in my life. what i need is just somebody to share stories with, so i don't feel like im in this by myself. somebody who knows how horrible it would be to be pregnant and confused and shut out by the people you thought loved you the most.
