October 28, 2015 I was 8 weeks and 17 years old…to me no big deal….fast forward

March 3, 2017 i was 19 I was 22 weeks but was refused an ultrasound in my hometown so when I went to the clinic 2 hours away, I had no idea how far along I was. When I found out I had a few hours to decide. Unfortunately the fetus was not developing properly. With missing limbs and not getting enough of nutrients. I was told if I went through with it, my chances of carrying full term were very low and my chances of a late term miscarriage or still birth were very high. For me and my boyfriend who was also with me in 2015 thought this was the best decision. I was there for nearly 12 hours.

We’ve suffered severe depression and had a lot of problems in our relationship. We still do. We have been together 6 years. I’m 23 and he’s 24. It hasn’t been easy and we’ve thought about giving up. I’ve struggled more than he has mentally and it’s taken a toll on me. I’ve also struggled with Endometriosis and I haven’t been able to get pregnant.   Through this journey I’ve found out a lot about myself. It wasn’t an easy decision but it was the best decision for us.

Remember that our stories are ours to tell. We’d love to hear your story too!
