Self coaching

All I can say is thank goodness for self coaching and the model! Over the weekend, I found out I was pregnant. This came as quite a shock as I have an IUD in place, already have two kids and don’t want more. I’ve been able to view the situation as a neutral circumstance and have been running a number of models on my thoughts about it. I’d love your feedback on my models and would also like any other suggestions for thoughts you may have during this challenging time.
