This is my story. It was about 3 years ago. I went over to Europe to meet someone I met on the internet. We had been talking for a year over the phone for many hours of the day every day and I finally decided to go meet him. I went over, things were good and I stayed for 3 months, I ended up getting pregnant the last month I was there but didn’t find out until I got back home. I took a test and was devastated. I was not ready to have a child yet and neither was he, plus I didn’t have a job–I was living back at home and it just wouldn’t have been right and also it was just bad timing. He wasn’t able to live over here and anyway just too many complications. So we decided to terminate it.
I made an appointment with the doctor to confirm it and see about who I should call, he gave me a number for a clinic. I went home and called the clinic and before I could go through with it I had to go back to the doctors and get an ultrasound which took a couple weeks to get in then I had to get the papers transferred and make another appointment with a different doctor to explain what they were going to do since I was having the surgical procedure. They had to put a seaweed thing in me to open my cervix a couple days before the operation, which was the most painful thing I’ve ever had happen to me.
So a couple days later I stayed at a friend’s and we went to the hospital and I had it done at 16 weeks. Anyway, I woke up and I cried immediately. My emotions were out of whack . I wished my boyfriend was there with me. I might have felt a lot better but I got over it. I don’t regret what I did at all it just was not the time and I was not ready. I wasn’t bringing a child into the world without any financial stability because I know I wouldn’t have been able to get my life on track if I did. It was the RIGHT decision. Now 4 years later my life is on track. I’ve been married for almost 3 years to the man I met in Holland, he now lives here and we are planning to have children in a few months because NOW we are ready and it’s the right time.
