But there are no two ways about it if you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, that sucks. Whether you are in a loving and stable relationship and have a great, financially rewarding job, are a student, or became pregnant after a one-night stand, an unplanned pregnancy is going to shock you. An unplanned pregnancy does not necessarily have to be an unwanted one "surprise" and "accident" are not synonyms. Whether you are happy to be expecting despite not having planned the pregnancy, or your pregnancy could not have come at a worse time, you have every reason to be sad, confused, and disappointed. Being gentle with yourself, and letting the news sink in for a few days, might be the best approach to an unplanned pregnancy.
Counseling can also help you come top terms with your pregnancy, and provide a way to assist you in coming to a decision about how to proceed with the future. Feeling guilty is probably not productive and remember, almost half of all pregnancies were unplanned!
