I was supposed to give birth this month.. By Precious

I was suppose to give birth this month ...I had a medical abortion on the 15th of November 2014.

I remember that day like it was yesterday. It was heavily raining. I suspected I was pregnant I went to the GP and he confirmed I wasn't. It confused me because I felt that I was pregnant I knew deep down that I was pregnant yes I saw my periods but they were not as normal as they used to be.

I waited for a week  or two trying to figured out what to do next, during those weeks I felt sick and went to the hospital, that is when it was confirmed that I was pregnant. Well I knew deep down that I was pregnant but the moment the Dr confirmed it, it felt so unreal though I knew. My partner became supportive financially,emotionally but we both knew that he didn't want to have this baby.

Editor's Comment

It is hard to anticipate the anniversary dates of an event like this, especially thinking about 'what might have been'. If you would like post abortion support it is available and you can access it through the directory.
