Dear T, I'll ;eave it to some of our other good readers to respond here, especially as you want to hear from someone who has been in the same sort of situation. Check out the availibility in your area of counselling services which focus specifically on advising someone with problems about an inconvenient pregnancy --- some lean towards the idea that abortion is a good option, others, I hear, do not. They can provide access to support and advice from others experienced with the sort of situation you find yourself in.
