My abortion story

by Iveliz

June 27, 2019

I was 25 when I found out i was pregnant for the third time at first I thought the tests were wrong but after taking a few I realized nope they’re right.When I went to the drs to confirm I was 5 weeks and 6 days. I talked to my husband about what we should do and we agreed the best thing was to get the abortion done.

On june 19,2019 I went to the clinic bc I couldn’t go through w it the first time around. Well at this time I was 7 weeks and 3 days when I made up my mind seeing my ultrasound wasn’t easy bc I felt like I was killing my baby. 2 or 3 days passed and I realized I made the wrong choice I started having regrets but after writing a letter to my unborn baby I said no I made the right choice. At the time I had a son who was 20 months old and a daughter who was 3 and a half. I didn’t have support from my fam, it’s as if they didn’t care about how I felt all they said was forget this ever happened.

I think about my baby and picture my life with 3 kids but I know when the time comes and when I feel ready to have another baby I will. It’s been the hardest decision I’ve made in my entire life but iIhonestly feel at peace now. I put everything in a box from the letter to my ultrasound.
