Update: I'm 7 weeks pregnant and I really want an abortion

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I've had 2 traumatic emergency c sections with both kids. They left me with nightmares at least 2x a month, dreaming that I'm pregnant and feeling utter despair and fear. I always wake up before dreaming the actual operation. I don't think anyone understands the paralyzing fear csections give me. My therapist says its PTSD because they were both unplanned emergencies. I was on birth control, the pill. I took it religiously. Dh even used condoms. Fml
I want to die. I'm so fucking scared. I'm setting the appointment with PP tomorrow. Dh agrees.

I had my appt this morning. I'm going to take a pill starting tonight since its still early. I feel 100% relief. Thanks for those with helpful words. As far as getting my tubes tied, I demanded my ob to do it before my last section but she said there was no way shed do it under the duress I was under, plus im only 23. So now, I talked to PP about essure. I'm going to call my insurance as soon as its over and ask. And FYI, no bc is %100. My nurse said she's had 5 patients this past year that got pregnant while in essure or had tubes tied (2 were even using condoms!!) Chances are small I'd get pregnant on essure and condoms, but with my luck...

This.

I had 2 emergency c sections and never had the issues you're mentioning BUT everyone reacts differently.

That being said, abortion may cause MORE trauma to you.
While I'm pro-choice, I personally find this reason to be bullshit.


Quoting pittiesmom:

Have you considered that the abortion procedure may result in more trauma for you?

If you're less than 8wks you can do the abortion pill, which considering your trauma will be much easier on you so if this is for sure you need to hurry and get in.

 Yikes.  Maybe you should have your tubes tied or your husband have a vasectomy as well if you are that terrified of having another baby.

If this was a possibility, you should have taken measures to PREVENT the pregnancy, NOT end it!

 What if you end up with dreams about the child you aborted? It is also a major procedure and causes depression and PTSD in many women. I would think it would be easier for you to plan a c-section and work with a therapist for 6 months or so leading up to it. That way you are completely in control of the situtation without your baby having to die.
