Do what's best for you and your baby

I don't know how to start but I just need to get this off my chest.

I found out I was 3-4 weeks pregnant and I wasn't financially ready to have my baby no matter how badly I wanted it. I was only 17, living under my mothers' roof and I couldn't bring a little human into this world having nothing to offer them.

So I decided to get the abortion pill which is actually 2 pills. I took the first one orally and only experienced dizziness. After 2 days I took 5 different pills during my next follow-up in the clinic.

After only 20 min I experienced the worst abdominal pain I have ever had in my life. I felt dizzy, drugged, sleepy, I felt like complete crap.

I haven't told anyone and the only one who did know was the father of my baby, who wasn't around through all this.

I don't know if I made the right choice but I don't regret it. It was an unwanted pregnancy and I didn't want it to be an unwanted child.

I just wanted to share my story and let anyone know who's going through this alone at the moment, do what is best for you and your baby.
