An abortion for foetal abnormalityBy anonymous on 01/11/2011
Last October I went for my 14 week scan and I was so happy and excited to see my baby . Having just told my family the week before that we where expecting our 2nd child and couldn't wait to show off my gorgeous scan pics.
We sat in the waiting room after waiting to get my pregnancy notes back, 5 mins past then 10. I thought something might be wrong then 20 mins past then 30 and I knew, that thing I saw on the scan, the large area at the back of my baby's neck.
Then the doctor called us through and told us that our baby had Chromosomal abnormalitiesMy head was spinning, I couldn't understand why it had to be my baby, why me? I thought things like this mainly happened to older women, but I'm only 20 and the chances of it happening to someone my age were so slim I never thought it would.
The next day we went back for more scans and tests. I was told there was very slim chances of my pregnancy passing 30 weeks, and after a lot of tears and talking me and my husband decided that aborting the baby was the best thing for us as well as our baby. It was a very traumatic experience for me.
A year later and I still can't get over it. I miss my baby even though I never met him/her. I want them back. I want to hold my baby even for just one day. I have been trying to hide my feelings and get on with my life but I can't. I've decided that it is now time to get some help.
