Today I had my procedure done and I don’t know how to feel.

I feel sad sometimes, then I feel a little relief. I do want to become a mother, but the timing right now is so off and so wrong. I made the best decision for me. My boyfriend understands and we both decided it wasn’t time.

He was with me and is taking care of me, but sometimes I can’t help but think “what if”. Since the procedure I have seen so many pregnant women I find myself asking God if he’s trying to tell me something. I broke down today and I still don’t know why. My support team is here but sometimes I just have these moments of crying. But I’m hoping with time these feelings subside and I’m able to deal more better.

You deserve nonjudgmental
after-abortion support.
