I wish I'd had more time, support and counselling before deciding to abort my baby

I had an abortion in September 2014 at 7 wks 3 days, and also posted my post abortion experience here, whereas the actual physical experience was very easy and pain-free almost, the emotional experience now is a living nightmare.

I wish to god id have had some more time, more support and councelling before making the decision to abort my baby.

At the time I felt like it was the only thing to do, now I cant even look at myself without feeling sick. I feel like I am dying inside. My due date is coming up in 3 weeks, and its all I can think about.

If I could turn back the clock I wouldn't have done it.

Nobody was there for me, I had nobody to support me, and I felt so ill with sickness, and was struggling to cope.

If I had my time again id have kept my baby, how I am now and what I have to live with every single day is torture, I should be awaiting my childs birth, not mourning their death at my hands.
