Does anyone know this horror book? I read this when I turned 13, which is about 16 years ago, but it's not a children book.

It's a story of a woman who becomes pregnant and has to decide whether to keep the baby or not. She keeps it, but it turns out the baby is evil. I can't remember exactly what happens, but people died. I think the baby was some sort of witch, who used it's powers to convince the mother not to kill her while she was still a foetus. Somehow, the woman is transported back in time to the day when she decided to have the abortion or not, so this times she aborts the baby, but she knows it will cause her own death as the evil baby will kill her as revenge and so they both die.

It would be great if people can point me in the right direction, it was one of the few books that kept me reading when I got bored of children books.

Edited to make plot clearer -

A young woman falls pregnant.

She's not married, her boyfriend dies or leaves her (can't remember which or if the boyfriend dies after the baby is born).

She considers abortion, even going to the abortion clinic and sitting on the operating table to prepare for the abortion, but something compells her not to kill the baby so she leaves the clinic (turns out it was the baby witch using her power to compell the mother).

Baby is born, but the baby is evil and female, and people die. This part is fuzzy so can't remember exactly what happens.

Somehow mother is transported back in time to the abortion clinic when she decided to cancel the abortion. The evil witch baby begs her mother not to kill her, when that fails, she threatens the mother that she will die with her. Mother goes ahead with the abortion anyway. They both die, future is changed.

The closest match I can think of is Rosemary's Baby and its sequel Son of Rosemary but although the plot details are similar they're not quite the same so I suspect it's not what you're looking for.

Thought of that too, but about half of it sounds quite wrong...

Thanks, wish they were it but they're not :( Everytime I type up evil baby into search, it mostly comes up with evil mother/babysitter/father, so frustrating.

Rosemary's Baby?

Rosemary's Baby was just suggested!

Omen - the baby is not a girl/witch for starters

The Fifth Child by Doris Lessing?

No, it's an only child, and I think the woman was unmarried, that's why she considered the abortion. But the 'fifth child', does look like it has an interesting plot, I've added that to my wishlist.
