Is an abortion permissible in early 40 days of pregnancy?

Q:

Assalam o Alaikum. Can you please guide me about the early pregnancy if its permissible in Islam(fiqa hanfi). My wife is five days ahead of her monthly period and we just had a pregnancy test which is positive. We love to have children but right now we are not ready or haven't planned for this. I wanted to have a clear explanation of what the Shariyat says about it. A prompt response would be greatly helpful. Thanks
