Hello, Long story stort i just took a pregnancy test and it was positive.I know i really ought to know better at 21 but this really has caught me off guard, i'm still in school and it deffinatly wasn't planned. I feel completely numb, i told my best friend and she said whats your gut reaction telling you to do-but i don't have a clue.Do i tell him? Should i make a decision and then tell him? I can't imagine getting over the guilt of having an abortion or getting over the guilt of keeping a baby in a non ideal situation- I've gone into stress overdrive, how on Earth do i make a decision that is so much bigger than me!!? Many thanks x

Hi pokerfacekate: It's your decision when you want to talk to him, if you decide to tell him at all. The first step though is to make an appointment so that you can have the positive results confirmed with a blood test. Once you do that, we can help you get some information on your options, and walk you through each one of them if you like.

Thanks for the quick responce, he called me this evening and i told him (basically screamed it at him half way through he was rambling on about his stressful day-not ideal!), his reaction was intresting, he was very genuine and very positive, thats not to say that either of us said either way what we wanted. I've booked an appointment with the doctor for Thurs.. time for waiting game no. 2. I'd very much like some advice once this all feels real, (i'm hoping that comes with the doc's appointment) Many thanks again. x x
