Don’t want to be a mother

by Anonymous

July 7, 2021

I realized I was pregnant at 4 weeks. Typically an irregular period wouldn’t concern me, but something in my gut told me to take a pregnancy test. My boyfriend and I sat on the bathroom crying. I’m young and don’t want to be a mother. My boyfriend was there for me 100% and would have respected any decision I made – I think this experience made us closer in a way.

I took the abortion pills when I was about 7 weeks. I spent a full day on the couch/floor in my apartment, but after that it was over. No more debilitating nausea (I lost about 13lbs in 2 weeks since I couldn’t keep any food down).

I was confident in my decision and have no regrets, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t scared and physically/emotionally drained during this whole process. So thankful to have had this choice, and thankful for all the stories in this forum that helped me feel a lot less alone!
