I am pregnant again! What on earth is wrong with me??? Why is my case always different and just sad? I’ve had the first child, baby daddy abandoned us, second with my present guy and he isn’t even mentioning marriage and I just found out I’m pregnant for him again! 3 children!! I’m only 27. I have nothing going on for me and my career just babies. He’s asking me to abort it and won’t even talk to me. Of course I’m not thinking of killing my own baby but where am I heading in life with this? My life is a mess. I look a mess. I’m still living with my parents. The major issues is that I took a lot of pregnancy preventive drugs mostly herbal not knowing I have been pregnant for two months.
