A medical abortion at 19 weeksBy anonymous on 08/04/2013
So January 2013, me and my boyfriend split up, 1 week later I find out I'm pregnant. I had just turned 15, and thought I was only about 2/3 weeks gone. However, I had suffered from depression for a year before hand and was in complete denial about the whole situation. I still told my ex boyfriend but he wasn't interested in the slightest. Instead of helping me, he ignored me and acted like there was nothing wrong. Heartbreaking. So for 2/3 months I told my close friends and took several tests, all except 1 came back as positive but I believed that one negative test obviously. Big mistake. At the end of April 2012, my mother finally realised what was happening as my stomach had grown and I was constantly throwing up and tired. I told her everything expecting her to be so angry, but she wasn't. She gave me a choice, I could have kept the baby if I wanted, but I was still in love with my ex and didn't want to put him through that. He hadn't even spoken to me about the pregnancy properly. We went to see my GP who claimed I was 16 weeks pregnant and referred me to the hospital abortion ward. At this point me and my ex had started talking again but it was wrong for me to bring up the abortion to him as it was obvious he had already assumed I'd had it. So I kept it to myself. The hospital seemed very worried about my pregnancy, sending me to have another scan, where the nurse revealed I wasn't 16 weeks, but 19 weeks. I felt sick to my stomach, but I knew I couldn't keep the baby. 15 years old and a mother was so unrealistic to me. I had not lived my own life yet and couldn't provide for a baby.
