3 years ago I had an abortion. I don't really know why... I was young and stupid and when I think back to it it all seems like a blur.
I never really got over it and have always wished I didn't go through with it.

Now I'm 19 weeks pregnant and I love this baby. I can't wait to meet him/her and even though this baby was a result of failed contraception I couldn't be happier.
Until yesterday.
The father of my angel baby got in touch with me and all those feelings of regret etc just came rushing back.
I feel horrible because all I can think is why did I do it.
Why did I terminate that pregnancy but not this one.
Why do I care about this baby but I didn't care about that one.
I'm bringing this baby into the world to be surrounded by love but I couldn't do that for the first baby.

Ughhhhhhh. I know there's nothing I can do about it now, I just feel so bad.
Has anyone else gone through anything similar?

I could have written your post. I had an abortion 3yrs ago, but I knew at the time I couldn't afford to raise the baby and knew the dad wouldn't be there to help. I got pregnant on bc and chose to keep this baby because I couldn't go through it again. I just had my baby on the 9th and while I was pregnant I thought why is this baby different? I finally told myself to not beat myself up and that I made the decision I had to at the time. I still think about the what ifs from time to time, but i try not to let myself go down that path too much. Its hard and I have my moments, but I love this baby.

If you could not provide the life the child needed,you did the right thing. If you didn't care,you would have had it in a messed up place and not cared.

I had the same feeling after my son was born. I asked myself the same questions but when I thought about it, I looked at the difference between where I am now and where I was four years ago. I wouldn't have been able to give that baby the love and support he/she deserved so after thinking about it im glad I made the decision I did.

it wasn't time back then, clearly you couldn't handle it there was some reason and just cause you may not remember tit doesn't mean it wasn't there.
