I got pregnant on Mirena as well, so be careful.... it sucked because I then miscarried.



Thanks for sharing your story and so sorry for all you had to go through, its very tough.

Thanks for sharing your story and congrats on this current pregnancy! It is very hard being a young parent....but if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything! Good luck to you!

Thanks for sharing your story as well! I can relate with you in many ways....and abortion is never easy and it stays in our minds and hearts forever. I am glad that things are going good for you now and hope it all stays that way! Congrats on everything! :D

You can't be negative about abortion at all inside the AS forum or you'll be modded.

Reading these stories brings me to tears. I've never had an abortion, and personally am pro-life, but I don't condemn anyone for having one. From these stories, it seems like the act itself is enough guilt for a regular person, which is why I don't believe the protestors should be outside or people should be looked down upon. Honestly, with my first pregnancy I went to an abortion clinic. I had just turned 19, was in my parents' house (my dad is a preacher!), and was in school. I would cry and cry while I debated over the decision, and would call the clinic and hang up. I had to listen to "friends'" pep talks just to work up enough courage. I just knew I couldn't be another statistic, a teen pregnancy, especially in my dad's house, and yet I felt so ashamed because I felt like the baby could know and feel what I was thinking. I always pictured the baby saying "why mommy?" like those pictures people always show on the internet and crap, and that would send me into a crying fit. I finally worked up the nerve to go, had my play "brother" take me, and paid them the intial 80 or 120 or whatever it was (the total cost was like 305). All the nurses were nice and since it wasn't an actual abortion day no one was outside (or in) the clinic. (it also serves as a women's clinic on the days they dont do the procedures). I had my mind and my money set to do it, but while she gave me an ultrasound something (I'd like to think it was God) told me to look. I asked to see the screen and although she looked at me REAL crazy she let me see, and in that second I fell in love. I continued with the appt and made arrangements for my next one, but in my heart I knew I wasn't going to go through with it and from that day on I never thought about it again.
A short time later I ended up losing my daughter and in my depressed time I used to think it would've been easier to just "get rid" of her then with no emotions attached and not even a picture for my memory. But now, after counseling and being in my right mind, I wouldn't give up those 5 months with my daughter for anything. I don't regret one bit going to the clinic, or paying them my money because it was what I needed. I don't know about other places but the one I went to doesn't show you the baby, and sometimes I wonder if maybe they did, how many lives they'd save. I have a couple friends who had late LATE abortions, but for the most part, I don't know too many others who can look right at their child, something they made and go through with it.
So thank you ladies for sharing your stories, and I hope they'll make some people think. If not make them change their mind altogether, at least cause them to consider what they're doing from another perspective...

Oh okay because I was going to pray extra hard for you tonight!! lol With 5 babies at once plus one, you'd need to win the lottery or something. Are you excited? Have you had a c-section before?

well a lot of places just MAKE you get a Csec once you already have had at least one. They actually gave me a choice to try for a VBAC, but I just prefer to get another Csec. Most people would want to try for a VBAC though, so I think it's nice they give you the option here.
