I was 19, going through an ugly divorce with a man who cheated on me...


"I was 19, going through an ugly divorce with a man who cheated on me the entire short duration of our marriage, I had no job and had to move back in with my mom (who had no idea I was pregnant), I was in the process of finally joining the military, and suddenly found out I was pregnant with my soon to be ex husband's fetus. I have always been pro choice, and luckily it wasn't a hard decision for me to make. I knew I was in no position at all to be a mother, nor did I want to be. I found out June 6th I was pregnant, and on June 23rd I went in for my procedure. The side effects (vomiting, fatigue, etc) disappeared almost immediately and I resumed my life as normal. Although I knew what I was going to do as soon as I found out, it was made much easier with the support of my friends and the extremely friendly staff at the clinic I went to. To this day, I don't regret it one bit. I'm not sure where I'd be had I continued that pregnancy, and I thank everyone who helped me thru it." —Sydnee
