Unplanned Pregnancy in Texas in your 20s, 30s, and 40s

Facing an unplanned pregnancy in Texas at any point in your life can throw your life out of balance. You may be feeling overwhelmed with the onslaught of responsibility thrust into your life, but you don’t have to go through this alone. There are many options for you to consider when faced with an unplanned pregnancy, such as adoption. Placing your child up for adoption will provide them with a healthy home and parents who can spend time actively taking care of your child. Whatever option you choose, you can be assured that you are making the right decision for your future and the future of your child.  

However, an unplanned pregnancy can happen at any point in your life, and you may find yourself at a loss as to what to do since an unplanned pregnancy in your 20s may look more different than an unplanned pregnancy in your 30s. Circumstances in your life can change drastically, and your goals in life may change as you age. Thus, it is important to take into consideration when considering pregnancy at different ages. At Adoption Choices of Texas, we provide support for any woman facing an unplanned pregnancy, regardless of when it happens.  

If you need help with adoption now, you can call us at 945-444-0333, text us at 945-444-0333, or email us here.

Unplanned Pregnancy in Texas at Your 20s 

For many people, their 20s are a turning point in their lives. Many young people may be in college or landing their first jobs. Nonetheless, it is a point at which many things are happening, and you may be at this point in your life where an unplanned pregnancy would be difficult to handle. This is also a point in many people’s lives where they find independence, but you do not have to face this independently if you are unexpectedly pregnant. At Adoption Choices of Texas, we can work with you if you do decide to carry out your pregnancy but cannot take care of the baby. If you are also facing financial difficulties that make it difficult for you during pregnancy and after birth, our adoption counselor can work with you to ensure a happy and healthy pregnancy and avoid any financial stress. You can reach out to our adoption Agencies in San Antonio or our other private adoption agencies across Texas by contacting us. 

 Unwanted Pregnancy in Your 30s 

By your 30s, you may have found a place in life by having a stable job and maybe even have your own family to take care of. You may have just been married. Whatever your 30s may bring, an unplanned pregnancy may not have been one of the things you were expecting. Many women in their 30s find themselves pregnant, but many people don’t realize that women in their 30s can still find themselves unexpectedly pregnant. At this point, you should evaluate your own goals in life because becoming a parent is no joke. You may want to reach out to people you trust or your husband if you are unsure of what to do. Whatever choice you make is not “right” or “wrong” because you should do what is best for you.  

If you do decide to carry your child to term, you can place your child up for adoption if you find that you cannot properly care for your child. Adoption Choices of Texas provides plenty of resources should you choose to put your child up for adoption. Our professional staff will work with you in order to meet all your needs, before birth and after birth. 

Unexpected Pregnancy in Your 40s 

Many women in their 40s, which maybe you, have a point of stability in their life. They are tending to bills, taking care of children they already have, and focusing on how to retire. Many women have also decided not to have any more children or any children at all at this point because many women in their 40s begin reaching menopause. However, an unplanned pregnancy can still happen but having a child in your 40s comes with more risks. An unexpected pregnancy in your 40s can increase the risk of miscarriage and chromosomal disorders if you choose to carry on with the pregnancy. The best thing you can do if you are pregnant in your 40s is to reach out to your OBGYN in order to find out the best course of action for you to take.  

Placing Your Baby Up for Adoption in Texas

No matter what age you are when your unplanned pregnancy happens, you still have complete control as to how you want to deal with the situation, especially if you choose adoption. You may choose adoption as an option for a number of reasons:

  • You do not want to give up educational or job opportunities 
  • You may want to give your child a more stable home life 
  • You may not be emotionally ready to take on the life-long commitment as a parent[Text Wrapping Break] 

Whatever the reason may be, adoption will provide your child with a future full of loving people who will take care of them. Adoption Choices of Texas is more than eager to help out expecting mothers like you who want to give their child an opportunity. Our diligent team will ensure that the process will be as smooth as possible and that you get to choose your child’s adoptive family. No matter what, you get to see how your child can flourish.
