It has been over a year now. And things are going well. My (now) fiance and I are busy busy busy! I am writing this because I know things changed for me. I never thought I would have had an abortion, but I did.
Do I regret it? No. Reflecting back on where I was and where I am, I know I would not have been able to give a baby the world - which it was every child deserves!
Do I think about it? Yes. Sometimes it just pops in my head. When pregnancy comes up in a conversation, it crosses my mind. Some days I totally forget and other days I cannot stop thinking about it.
Do I talk about it? Yes. With my fiance. He was there through the whole process. Sometimes we even joke about. It helps to talk about it once in a while.
Do I ever get sad? Eh. Not really. I know what we did was the best option for us. My fiance mentioned the other day that if we went through with the pregnancy, we would have a 6 month old crawling around and that just scared us both! I think we only got sad after my father passed away because he would have made an amazing grandfather.
Overall, the abortion put some things in perspective for me. And I am okay ! That is the best part, I am doing just great. With a few hiccups, my life is heading right where I wanted it to.

Everyone has good days and bad days. It is how you work through your struggles and celebrate your triumphs that count.

Thank you for sharing.

I also never thought I could have an abortion people say it's wrong and have all these opinions like I once had but until you are physically and mentally put in that position you don't know how your going to feel. Only the woman can make the choice fair enough the dad has a say too but the woman has to go through it all all the pain etc. I already have a daughter who's 1 this month & I was on the pill when I fell pregnant. I had my abortion on Saturday and as much as it's a horrible thing for a woman to go through I know i made the right choice. There are a lot of women who use it as contraception which is wrong but I know I'm not mentally capable of looking after 2 kids at the age of 21 while my partners out at work it wouldn't be fair to the child. You made the right choice be strong and one day I'm sure you'll be a fantastic mother x

I'm happy for you! I had an abortion recently and I'm having a really hard time with it. Reading all the stories posted about how it's been so long and they are still depressed every day, while it is helpful to know that I'm not alone in feeling that way, your post is so refreshing to read. It really gives me a glimmer of hope that there's a light at the end of this dark tunnel. So, thank you.
