In February in my first year of university I got pregnant. I met my boyfriend in the September prior, and we both decided we can’t raise a baby and still carry on with university and achieve our dream careers. On March the 14th I had an abortion. My boyfriend didn’t come.
I still go to weekly counselling sessions. Please reach out to someone. Seeing a counselor is the best decision I made. I know it’s bad to keep count, but my due date is coming up on October 22nd, and I feel guilty and sad thinking about the other way my life would be right now if I decided to keep the baby.
I just started second year at uni studying law, I know I wouldn’t have been able to do that if I was 9 months pregnant right now.
I was selfish in my decision, I chose getting a good career, but that’s okay.
