My Abortion

Was the hardest and worst decision I've ever made.

I would be 28 weeks along, if I had only waited and decided to stick it out I would be decorating a nursery instead of grieving.

Please know that some reasons you may have for an abortion can be temporary. Mine were.

Know you options, all of them.

Edit:
We had the abortion for financial reasons.

My DS needed hand surgery for his trigger thumb and it cost 10k. That was the money we saved up to have a baby. With only my husband working it didn't seem responsible to continue the pregnancy. 

My husband just got a very unexpected raise this past Monday.

I'm very sorry that this decision has made you feel this way.

Do you have anyone close to you that can help you through this and support you?

have you tried talking to a therapist about this? it may help to speak to a nonbias person who will listen to you and give you coping skills to get through this.  i aborted.  most women feel that it was the best situaton.  you dont and thats fine but you cant change what you did now

Oh good. At least you're taking steps together to move on from it. If anyone tries to make you feel bad, turn away and try to not let it get to you. You can't change what happened, you can only shape your future from here on out. I have heard that it gets better over time.
