Im seriously thinking of ending this one and waiting for the time when we planned.
what would you do?
WTF???? Seriously it sounds like you are talking about a friggen pet or an appliacnce, its a baby, another human, no thanks not at the moment, we'll just take the next one coming!
Sorry but for the above reasons it sounds incredibly selfish and I think you need a long hard think about this with your DH, do you really think that terminating cos the due date falls on settlement is a reason you won't regret???
Its not easy but you will generally cope with what you are given, I do know how you feeel a little,when I was having #3 I had a 3yo,1 yo, all day sickness the entire time, severe sciatica so I couldn't walk and DH working away all week, and the odd weeks he was home everynight he got home around 6pm, was in bed at 7.30pm and gone at 2am, then to add a baby that screamed all night!!
Was it easy??? NO but I don't think being a parent is meant to be easy, I look at my DD2 now and think of all the times when I was preg or when she was screaming all night thinking "What have I done" but now she is nearly two and the most delightful child I have ever met, she brightens my world everyday.
Sorry but in your position you ask what would we do???? For me, yes I would be worried and a little stressed but be incredibly grateful for what I have been given, it is not something to be taken lightly and just "get rid of" till its more convenient cos believe me it can all be taken away in a gheartbeat.
Someone said on here once "You will never regret the kids you DO have, only the ones you didn't " and that has always stuck with me.
Sorry but you asked and that is my answer, and I do tend to agree with Flap here
