I got pregnant after a drunken one night stand.
It was over in a few minutes, my little baby gone.I cried throughout the whole of the procedure and the nurse said to me 'are you sure you want to do this', I wish I could go back in time and just jump up off the bed and say 'no I want to keep my baby'. Afterwards I didn't feel much better, I laid in the recovery room crying and thinking I just made a huge mistake because I wanted my little baby and I was thinking I could of raised my child, I could have done this and besides that I wanted too. To my little one, I'm sorry mummy wasn't strong enough to bring you into this world. I'm sorry that I took away your little life. I will always love you so much, you will always be with me !! Love you lots xx
Editor's CommentA lot of what you say suggests that you were never sure about your decision to have an abortion. Even when you first found out you were pregnant something inside of you was excited. Your tears and emotional pain leading up to the abortion indicated the struggle you were having to try and deny your true feelings. I am very sad that there was no counselling, or support at that stage to help you to think through your decision, and to be really sure what was right for you.
I do believe there is a way for you to work through your emotional pain and come to a place of peace. Please contact us if you would like a trained advisor to support you with post abortion recovery.
