Hi, I am 26 and have a 6 year old son. I have been with my partner my sons dad on/off for 10 years. The relationship has been a very mentally abusive relationship. We split for 2 years during those 10 years and after some time apart decided we had grown up and was going to try again. This was 6 months ago. Everything was great. I had my implant removed due to side affects and switched to the pill. During my switch I fell pregnant. Before finding out I am pregnant I discovered my partner was cheating and called time on our relationship once and for all. I now know I am pregnant (very early stages) I have told him and he suggested I have a termination and then blocked my number completely. I feel as though it would be best for me and my son if I had a termination and we moved forward with our lives together without his dad or any other links for his dad to hold on to. As he is a trouble maker and picks and chooses when he feels like popping into my life again which is usually just to see what I'm doing and nothing to do with wanting to be a father. So I'm feeling like I shouldn't go ahead with the pregnancy and should start afresh. However I am feeling overwhelming guilt because I had an abortion in my younger years and feel at my age it is embarrassing and stupid of me. Even though I didn't know I would end up in this situation of course. My sons dad has never contributed financially and I struggle as it is. He also lives an hour and a half away and doesn't help out much. He never takes his son out just them 2 for quality time things like that. He's just not that way inclined. I just thought I'd see if I could get some advice of anyone. I know ultimately it's my decision and my decision alone but if there's anyone who's been in a similar situation who could send some words of encouragement that would help immensely!
