Maybe you've always wanted a baby brother or sister and your parents just told you you're going to have one. Or maybe you have liked being an only kid and you're not quite sure how you feel about having a new sister or brother. Either way, when your mom's going to have a baby, there are changes ahead.

We've been involved for more than 4 months so far and now I know I'm pregnant. I told him that and he comforted me and said he wants me to have this baby, but I'm scared of pregnancy and the child being born with abnormalities. I'm a total mess, depressed and in panic. He is 24, I'm Re: My brother got me pregnant. And I am NOT an expert or professional. But the chances of a baby having problems. Are raised.
But still not a definite fact. I think that's difficult odds for a pregnancy though.
On top of birth defects. The other issue would be how your family and friends react. It can be very hard to be a "single" parent. And to make him pay child support and so on. I don't think your brother could protect you from that. And finally, there's the child themselves as they grow up.

I'm not sure how you'd approach talking to them about their father. But I think they do have the right to know.
Especially as medical advances make DNA testing more useful for early detection of possible health risks. Maybe not in the near future. But the next years? Much more likely. I'm really sorry you have to go through this.
It seems to me that if it might be possible to safely abort the pregnancy. That would be the best approach. Still not an easy thing to go through!
Bug safe hugs to you, if wanted. It's so unfair. But weighing a termination against the other factors. I think it might be best for you in the longer term. It's your decision, though. Such a difficult one. I hope things work out well for you.

More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. If you don't and the other parent doesn't then it isn't going to happen, no matter what your relationship is with the other person if they are your sibling, parent, child, or a stranger. The problem is that we all have recessive genes that might be problematic and if you are related to the other parent they are also more likely to have that gene, too.
Now, if it is recessive and you have the gene but not the problem, and your brother has the gene but not the problem, it still doesn't mean your kid is going to have the problem.
There is only a 1 in 4 chance the child would have the problem. So, it is a greater chance, but still not that high. As the chance goes up in the general population it is even higher for incest.
Depression Sexual Addiction Generally just messed up! Based on a study of 29 babies born from closely related parents. I didn't follow through to the study to assess the study methodology. Or what they classed as an abnormality. And that is a small to work from.
