My husband and I terminated our first pregnancy because it just wasn't the right time, and two years later I gave birth to a beautiful little girl. Your comment that OP is considering, "killing her child" is completely unwarranted and unfair. I also considered terminating my last pregnancy, which was a surprise, because my husband and I thought we were done after two children, but in the end we decided to continue. I have never once looked at my daughter and thought, "jesus christ I almost killed you." Give it a rest. This isn't the place for that type of talk.
See, most people terminate pregnancies because there's a critical health risk to the mother or child, or because they have no viable way to raise it, or even because the mother and father aren't committed to each other. In that context, getting an abortion because it would be mildly inconvenient to the ten-week party that kicks off one of the most depressing careers around demonstrates, if not derangement, a complete lack of proportion between one's work life and family.
But hey, if you all want to have a big circle jerk where you tell OP there's nothing wrong with having as many abortions as it takes to finish those stock purchase agreements, go ahead. I don't give a shit; I'm not the one who has to look in the mirror and really wonder how I've prioritized my family. Just try not to open your speech at her wedding with "I almost aborted her because I didn't want a third kid."
