I feel more like myself

Before I even missed my period I had a strange feeling that I may have been pregnant. I had this feeling in my stomach. When I could finally take a test I took it immediately and soon after I saw that positive sign. It was an incredibly tough decision to make but with talk with my partner we decided we definitely weren’t ready. I was still trying to figure what I wanted to do in my life and was trying to find a new home with my mum. What they don’t really tell you is that you have to be minimum 6 weeks to have a surgical termination. I had to wait 2 weeks before the day came and during that time I lost myself. I was constantly tired and agitated and feeling sick in the stomach. I couldn’t embrace it as I knew my decision. My partner has been incredibly supportive and made sure I was comfortable. Now that I’ve had my termination I feel more myself, I have my energy back and I’m happy. I’m so thankful that we have a choice with our bodies and will forever be pro choice.
