    Some things to ask yourself because becoming pregnant are: Can you provide for you baby? Can you love him/her unconditionally? Are you willing to make sacrifices in your life to help your baby? Having a child is a very stressful thing, be sure to talk to your partner about it, if he is to be involved with any decisions, this would be a good one to include in that. It took me a few months to conceive and we still talk about how our family will work out toward. Be sure to talk about parenting decisions such as circumcision, daycare, names, etc.

    I've been there with that feeling, it just takes getting used to the idea of another person depending on you, maybe get counseling or just talk to someone (i.e. partner) about how you feel... that would always help you out in the long run to have a trusting relationship. Good luck

    you don't say how far along you are but there are a few reasons for your feelings just read your questions and most of your answers will be there, you are under a lot of pressure and that is not good for you or the baby try and relax and tell your self every thing will work out (it usually does) but these feelings will disappear when you hold your sweet baby for the first time, believe me I have 3 and there is not thing in this world like a baby!!!! you will be fine.

    If you are not ready to have a baby, then don't. There are methods to prevent it. As you mature, you may find the need for a child, but not all people do. There are no laws that you have to have kids. For some, career and a spouce is enough.
