First pregnancy at 30 I don't feel ready  
I found out this past week that I was 5 weeks preg. I'm in an amazing relationship & have a supportive family. I was beyond ecstatic finding out. My boyfriend wants this baby & is excited about becoming a family. We've been together 1yr & are both working towards a better future. The past 24hrs anxiety & fear have overshadowed EVERYTHING. I can barely keep up with taking care of myself. I feel terrible even thinking about this procedure but there's so much I want to get done before bringing a life into this world. I just turned 30 I love kids but I don't want to be selfish I want the best for the baby

You have a supportive family and your relationship is great. Many women go through these types of uncertainties. Its normal. You can still reach your goals, your family I'm sure will help out.

No one can tell you what is right for you and your family, relationship, and body.
Do you have a pro-choice clinic that you can go to for counselling? Make sure it is one that offers you all of your options in an honest and factual way.

The decision is completely your choice. Your partner and no one else can make it for you. Age has nothing to do with being ready..you can be ready at 20, not ready at40. I would suggest you meet with a pro choice counselor (make sure they are! Planned parenthood etc.) and look at all your options. In the end, it's yours and you don't owe an explanation to anyone.
