Getting Abortion

To make a long story short. I'm young married and have a young child as of now. Found out yesterday (after a week or so thinking i was) that i was pregnant. I'm full time in school and my husband works around the clock to make ends meet. Financially and emotionally we are not ready for another child. I've made an appointment for an abortion but cannot get in for another two weeks. However, my concern is that I'm quite sure this is what i want. Emotionally, i feel like im not feeling what i should be feeling. I feel like i'm not sad enough or nervous. I feel just blah, would be the best way to describe it. I feel nothing toward my husband lately either. Like i don't want to be around him or want to have anything to do with him. Is there anyone what has had experience with this... any advice on the emotional toll of abortion and relationships...thanks.

Only you know what is right for you. The previous commenter said abortion "ruins" your life--this is false. I had one almost 13 years ago and it certainly did not ruin my life. My circumstances were very different from yours. I think it's different for everyone emotionally. I don't even think about it anymore, but it bothered me a little at the time. I knew it was the right thing to do in my situation at the time. Feel free to pm me if you have any questions or if you need someone to talk to.<br />
I wish you the best in whatever you decide. Aloha!
