My Story

This page was such a support when I was going through a threatened miscarriage which ultimately led to a surgical abortion.

I didn’t tell anyone I was pregnant. I wanted to wait till my second trimester. I did however tell my immediate family.

After my threatened miscarriage…I scheduled a recommended surgical abortion. The doctor at the ER wasn’t very helpful. “If you have a miscarriage don’t bother coming back, just flush it.” or “You can schedule a surgical abortion if you want to get it over with.”

I scheduled the appointment.

I had to wait 12 days. Every day, for 12 days, I was feeling some kind of discomfort. Everyone who knew didn’t talk to me…didn’t comfort me…didn’t acknowledge what was happening. They waiting till after the abortion. It was too “uncomfortable” for them.

I have never felt so alone.

So, thank you for this page and sharing stories. It helped me a lot during this time and even now.

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