The Unknown Future of a Pregnancy
A lot of life is a guessing a game. We don’t ever really know what is ahead of us, even when we think we have it all planned out. You go along a path to your future, but so many experiences and decisions can bump you right onto an entirely different route. What will your path ahead look like with an unexpected pregnancy? What will the future hold with each of your pregnancy options?
There’s no fortune telling in an unexpected pregnancy, no crystal ball to reveal what’s going to come of your decision. You can’t see into the future with a guaranteed outcome, no matter which pregnancy option you’re considering most. Parenting may seem like a challenge, even with a support system in place. Abortion may seem to address your current concerns, but could come with emotional or physical effects. You don’t know for certain what’s going to happen next once you make a pregnancy decision.
Seeing into the Future of Your Pregnancy Options
In all this uncertainty, how do you move forward and make a pregnancy decision you can feel good about? You want to see into the future and make a choice that’s right for you. What’s your best pregnancy option? And how can you help yourself find clarity among the unknown?
First, don’t try to play the guessing game with your pregnancy options. Even if you think you have all the facts, there may be aspects you aren’t aware of, or things you haven’t thought about yet. What are the adoption plan options in your region? What resources and support systems are available to parents in need within your local community? What are the different abortion procedures and the risks involved? Start delving into questions like these and learn more about each pregnancy option.
Then, slow down the spinning emotions that uncertainty can bring. A lot of us tend to feel anxious when we’re unsure, placing pressure on ourselves to figure out the answer. You could feel rushed, stressed, panicky, or overwhelmed. Resist that urge to decide quickly. A pregnancy decision should never be rushed or pressured, whether it’s from yourself or others. Pause to fully examine both the negative and positive feelings that could come with each pregnancy option. What feels right for you, and why
What happens next in your pregnancy decision is up to you. No one can, or should, decide for you—even if it’s a loved one or your partner. No prediction about the future will be one hundred percent accurate. This can make a pregnancy decision terrifying to face. Ultimately the decision affects you most directly and should be one you confident in making. Even when you don’t know the future, the unknown can bring opportunities you never thought possible.
