Totally petrified. If I did get knocked up, we would make it work, but there’s soooo much change going on in our lives right now that I might lose my mind if I had to deal with also planning for a child. Also the idea of giving birth scares the crap out of me…at some point I’ll deal with it but not now!

I wouldn’t say terrified, but I don’t want to get pregnant for another 2.5-3 years. I’m engaged now though so if I get pregnant it wouldn’t be horrible. But Idefinitely don’t want to now.

not to be crass, but imo, that’s what abortions are for. for the longest time i doubled up on protection, and now i have an iud, so the odds are slim., and i absolutely judge people who don’t use protection and then get an abortion (especially if they don’t learn from it). but so long as you do your best to protect yourself, if you still get pregnant, i have no problem with someone exercising that option.

I’m not terrified of it but I sure would find it annoying. I know I’d absolutely have an abortion if it happened but having to go to the clinic, etc, would be a pain.

I have been known to test myself sometimes if I’ve been feeling bloated or nauseous for a few days..l the sooner you find out the easier the abortion should be (I’ve researched this!).

That is the one big thing I am afraid of right now. We are getting married in 7 months and I sure as hell do not want to be 7 months pregnant on my wedding day. My main goal right now is actually to not get pregnant before the wedding as long as that happens I will be happy

@starbuckslover:  it’s not pro-choice if you judge people for getting an abortion, even if they didn’t use BC.  either you’re for the option or you’re against the option, there isn’t some magic number of “acceptable” abortions, or special situations that make them acceptable.  (either you believe it’s a child or you think it’s a blob of cells, that’s all there is to it.)  sorry, that’s a pet-peeve of mine.

OP, we are waiting a few years to have a kid and I’d be really freaked out if I got pregnant now, simply because we couldn’t afford a baby yet! I definitely already have a little bit of baby fever, but I know it’s better for us to wait.

Yep.  I have medical issues and medications that add to that stress.  We’re a 2 method couple (BCP and condoms).  lol Maybe I could consider 3 methods as one of my medications is likely to cause miscarriages.

@bookworm88:  i’m 100% pro-choice, and think that if you want an abortion you should have access to one, regardless of what type of protection you used or didn’t use. if someone doesn’t want to have a baby, i’d much rather they abort than be a (potentially) neglectful/resentful parent. i judge (internally) the fact that they’re using it AS birth control if that makes sense. especially those that continue to go on to not use birth control after the fact. if you’ve had three abortions, you’re doing something wrong. especially considering how accessible birth control is these days (at least in my region).

ME!!!!!! I pray to God that I don’t get pregnant for at least 5 years but as long as I don’t get pregnant for another year and a half I think I could be ok, at least I would be done with school…. But I’ve made it a few years without any scares so I think it’s ok but it still freaks me out sometimes :/

I basically spent 90 percent of my time convinced I’m pregnant. Even though we’re super good about BC.  I just worry like crazy. I used to worry about it before I had sex too haha. I have a giant stock pile of pregnancy tests (pretty sure the girl at the Dollar store thought I was crazy haha). It would ruin all of my plans right now. We are not in the position to have a child, and I’d have an abortion in a heart beat, but I just don’t even want to deal with it. I’m getting the IUD put in in December and I can’t wait.

I am probably the most paranoid person you will ever meet. Have severe anxiety issues about getting pregnant, as we NEVER want kids and are 100% certain of that.  SO has a 6 month old niece who was an “oopsie” baby. They always used protection, and the one time they didn’t, she got pregnant.

Granted, I’m 150% pro-choice, so I would exercise that option if necessary, but I would rather never have to make that choice.

I really use to be terried of getting pregnant too soon after getting married. Then one time I actually thought I might have been and was shocked at the excitement I sort of felt at the possibility of getting knocked up and was a little bummed when I wasn’t. Now I am more worried about not being able to get pregnant! But dreams have always freaked me out and use to wake up Thanking God when it wasn’t real!
