Thank you. :)
This makes me think about other Moms who don't let their kids be open with them. It makes me so angry that a lot of parents don't "get" how to talk to kids. This is not the place for my story but I also made a decision that was not good because my Dad made me so freaked out all the time.
I know I came to this thread late but I am so glad that she had the courage to shear her story because I think a lot of people can get help from it.
I am so glad that you are doing better now!
I had an abortion when I was 15 years old, and as much as I still mourn over the loss, I know I wouldn't be where I am now if it hadn't have been for it. I learnt so much from the experience, and I actually believe that I have appreciated and treasured my subsequent pregnancies because of it.
I'm glad you're still with Charlie as, although the pain will never go away, at least you were able to share the experience together, and be able to treasure this pregnancy now with each other, and in the future, be able to explain what happened to your children when they're older so they can understand.

I read your story quite some time ago, and have seen you around since you were TTC with number 2.
Try not to be too hard on yourself, you did what was best at that time. You are very strong.
Hiya, new to BG today and I am soooo glad I found ur post......altho my situation is slightly different from how yours was back in 2011, I am currently in a position in which I could relate your story to. A mum of 6 beautiful children and altho I am alot older than you were at the time ( I'm now 37 ) I am absolutely sure that abortion at my time ( 20w 2d ) is definitley the right choice for me. Scared is not the word and I just hope it all turns out ok. Your little one is beautiful and thanks again for posting your story.......it kinda helped <3 xx
