I had an abortion. It was a wanted baby but I sort of went psycho because I lost my job right after I found out I was pregnant and decided that it would be the better choice. It haunted me for a long time. Not so much now that I have my two boys but I wonder what if, KWIM? I no longer regret that choice but I did up until the day my oldest was born.

Sorry to hear about the regret you felt/feel :( but in the long run you made the right decision for you.

Quoting brooke_x:" Sorry to hear about the regret you felt/feel :( but in the long run you made the right decision for you. "

We are really happy now because we actuly TTC right after that and had a baby about a year after the procedure. So as soon as I got pregnant I felt better. But I was just thinking about it today and how I never thought I would regret it at all. So for the women who think they might regret the decision. I want to tell them my story just so they know that it can happen. Just make sure to think about it even if you don't think the baby is for you. Sometimes abortions are the right thing but sometimes the regret is so bad that the abortion dose not fix the problem

i'm thinking of getting an abortion. Until now I've been pro-life and I'm honestly not sure I could really go through with it but my current job and living situation is making me feel incapable of having another child. Yet, when I look at my daughter I just think it might be worth the struggle. Has anyone had one after they already had a child or children? ..Did the "regret" ever go away?

I'm sorry to hear about the regret you feel. I understand it too I have been there it's only natural. But we just have to remind ourselves that we did it for the reasons we thought right at the time and try to keep a lid on any "regret" we feel.



I just answered another thread about regret; i have had 2 abortions and felt regret MANY times, but i do not believe it is TRUE regret. i feel it is some natural instinctive womanhood/motherhood thing kicking in and is very powerful to fight!



I hope that i n time you will feel better... try counselling if you havent already? x

I think what you said makes since, the natural instinct thing. I don't worry about it anymore but I did until I conceived. I guess today it was just on my mind. You know how much it upset me even thought I did not even want a baby
