I was 29 years old. There was 5 kids between my fiancé and I. While searching for a doctor to tie my tubes after my second was born (who was only months old) I had gotten pregnant again. Having the job of my dreams, pursuing my Masters degree, and my fiancé exceeding in his career, there’s no way we can have another baby at this moment. This was by far on the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make in my life, but I know it’s what best for my family. Though my actions of unprotected sex were irresponsible, it would be more irresponsible of me to bring another child in the world.
