I took a pregnancy test, like others i took assumed it would be negative- it wasn’t. I took a second glance and was in disbelief to see two bold pink lines.


I fell to the floor crying in pure sadness, and in that moment i knew that’s not how i wanted to have reacted to finding out i was pregnant, that’s not the story i wanted to tell my future child.


I found out January 7th, made my appointment on the 8th and went to my abortion on the 18th.


I was 8 weeks, and i had the worst pregnancy. I puking every single day- constantly nauseous and bloated. My appointment was super early and i couldn’t even eat Cheerios on the way- i was that sick.


I couldn’t thank the clinic enough for the amount of supportive women in that place. Never was there a moment where i felt shamed, it just felt “normal” in a weird way. It was a long day but the abortion itself was very fast, and i was out of it and hardly felt anything.


The only feeling i had after was Relief. I instantly felt so much better – physically, mentally and emotionally. I wish abortion was something we could talk about more, I wish i could display my feelings and my beliefs without a fear of being rejected- or judged. But at the end of the day it’s your choice, no matter who you are or what situation you’re in- you deserve to make your own choice and i support you.

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