I went to a BPAS clinic and had a surgical abortion at 8 weeks.By anonymous on 19/09/2012
I have two daughter age 6 and 4 and felt our family was complete and my husband and I were ready to move onto the next phase of parenting (school age rather than pre-school) when I discovered I was pregnant.
I have suffered from severe sickness in both previous pregnancies, so much so that I have needed hospital admissions for IV fluids and medications to reduce the vomiting. This lasted until 20 weeks with both girls, I also had SPD (excessive movement of the pelvic bone) and had to have crutches and sciatica in late pregnancy too, all making pregnancy a very difficult struggle for me.
My first thought when I got the positive test was fear of having to do pregnancy again and really concerned about the impact me being pregnant and as ill as I was in previous pregnancies would have on my existing children.
My nausea was severe from 5 weeks and I was vomiting 10 or more times a day and felt dehydrated and so poorly that all I wanted was to feel well again and to go back to normal family life again. My husband did not want any more children and I was feeling so poorly and really missing my kids, I missed taking my youngest to school on her first day due to severe pregnancy sickness.
