Re: Worried

I am sorry that you're suffering so. It's sad that you are taking it out on your baby, though. The baby is an innocent victim.
It's not too late to stop your partying and take care of this child. Please say you will !
You have a unique opportunity to be a mommy. It is the most wonderful "job" in the world.
Don't mess it up by being selfish, please.

blessings to you, Sue

Re: Worried

Please, do not give up a childs life for your own partying and life style, you have so much time in the future to do what you want, but once a child comes into play, there is a whole different story and situation at hand.

I'm sure you will have a healthy, beautiful baby, but the responsibility is huge. And if you're not sure you're up for that responsibility, adoption is always available to hand, though not a nice option, it is available if you do not wish to keep the child.

I hope this helps.

Re: Worried

Please try to sacrifice partying for the rest of your pregnancy! It's not too late. Try to understand the complications of having a child with a disability and the guilt you will feel. I'm not trying to make you feel bad, but please consider. You need to care about yourself and the child.

Re: Worried

I'm so sorry you are feeling like this about your pregnancy. I don't think you don't care, I think you are in distress and sometimes it hurts to care. I hope you have support around you to help you through this. Don't make things worse by burying your head in the sand and hoping everything goes away. You don't want to look back with regret and wish you had something more. Have you spoken to your doctor or family about this? My heart goes out to you and I hope you start to feel more positive about you and your baby's future.
