How I Felt After A Medical Abortion

By December 4, 2018Abortion, Client Stories

I didn’t want to be pregnant. When I saw the positive test, I felt afraid. I took the Plan B pill, but it didn’t work. I couldn’t imagine having another child at this point in my life.

I told a friend who suggested I get an abortion. I started to search online & found Embrace. It was their closing time when I got there, but they stayed late for me. The counselor listened to my struggle. She prayed that’d I’d make the right decision for my family.

I didn’t want to accept that I was a mom again, but I knew in my heart it was true. I made 2 appointments the next week. One for an ultrasound at Embrace and one for an abortion at a clinic. At the ultrasound, I saw the heartbeatI didn’t go to my second appointment at the clinic. But later I started to waver on my decision.

Abortion Pill Reversal

I wanted to be educated so I started to look things up online. I was afraid of how I’d feel afterward if I got an abortion. Up until that point, it was never something I thought I’d consider. In my searching, I came across a video about the Abortion Pill ReversalI’d never heard of it before until then and it stuck in my head.

I ended up calling the abortion clinic again and crying the whole time she was telling me about the procedure. But eventually, I took the first pill at the abortion clinicImmediately afterward…I realized I was wrong. I was upset with the father and taking it out on the baby!

I remember driving home, crying and feeling like I was gonna faint. I felt sick at what I had just done. Remembering the video, I looked it up and called the hotlineIt wasn’t all easy after that. Lots of doctor’s appointments accompanied by lots of anxiety.

But I didn’t know what effects the pill had already had on my baby. I was now acting on faith or hope. No matter what, I was going to try to make this right. During that time, I went back to Embrace. I needed someone to talk toNo one outside of the staff at Embrace and my doctors knew I had taken the pill and was going through the reversal. Their support throughout the pregnancy meant everything to me.

The Sonogram Results

After 2 weeks into the reversal, a new sonogram confirmed that my baby was doing fine! I couldn’t have been more thankful. Throughout the rest of the pregnancy, I had amazing support from Embrace and my doctors. In the midst of my anxiety, I knew I had an army of people praying for me and my baby and it meant a lot to me. It fueled my hope. 

And now, I’m the mother to a beautiful, perfect, healthy baby girl!! The situation that seemed scary at first turned into the biggest blessing for my family. I look back now and I’m just so thankful. Her life is a blessing to me, not a hard situation. This baby has brought so much LOVE and joy to our family. Her smiles bring me happiness and peace.

At the time, I couldn’t picture myself having more kids, but now that she’s here, I can’t imagine our lives without her! I am forever grateful.
