abortion

I am 10 weeks pregnant. and I am getting an abortion.   I have stage 3 cancer and need chemo.  My family does not know I am pregnant or that I have cancer. I am doing it all by myself. I have 2 kids already. and I feel this is the best choice, as chemo ill most likely kill the embreyo anyways.  I am pro-choice, but have never had to make this decision before. it is not easy for me.  any advise or experience from those who got the surgical first trimester one? I am not sure what to expect. and google is just really not comforting at a time like this.

I am so sorry for your situation. I have never had an abortion, so I cannot give you any advice on that subject, but why are you keeping your cancer from your family? That is HUGE to be keeping inside. You need all the love and support you can get dealing with something like that.

The only advice I can give you is talk to your family, and also your oncologist. 

I wish you tons of luck!

my oncologist also agrees with my decision.  as they rarely ever let pregnant women get chemo. and he thinks if I wait I might not live till then without it now.

the clinic will be 100% for you, just make your voice heard on what you "expect" and what will make you comfortable. ask to speak to a councilor

they will listen.
