38 and Pregnant

July 15, 2022

In a nutshell, I wanted to get married and have a family right out of college. The years went on and I kept striking out with men. Now, I’m 38, single and find out I am pregnant. I have dated here and there in hopes of finding the one. I would go through long periods of celibacy thinking my Christian moral choices would bring the right man to me. That is what my Christian parent taught me growing up. But, being a human being I would slip up from time to time and have sex. This time in particular I was not ready for what happened. I even told the guy I was dating I wasn’t ready for sex. Nonetheless, we both went all the way. He got me pregnant right away. I felt disrespected by him seeing he didn’t put a condom on and decided to cum inside of me. I was so angry at myself and him for allowing the pregnancy to happen. The good news is, living in America we are given the right to choose life or abortion. To me, the fetus was only 7 weeks, had no feelings, no emotions. I was the one with feelings and emotions and knew I wasn’t ready to be pregnant. Pregnancy is no joke. Moody, feeling sick, depressed. I am so thankful I can choose what is best for me. I will choose to learn from my sexual mistakes so that I don’t have to go through the abortion process again if I am not ready.
