Gillian's Story

I am 32 years old and pregnant for the1st time.

The guy who I thought was "into me" wasn't. We used protection - and the test was positive. I was in shock. I still am.

I havent really cried openly about it - but I will. I wish the guy would call me or acknowledge what I am going through, but if that is the way he is - then I dont wan't him in my life.

I have an abortion scheduled for next week. 2 days after my birthday. Looking at the stories of these brave wome has helped me so much. I have only told one person- my best friend. I am not so scared of the procedure - I am scared of the emotional impact that this is going to have..
I will keep my chin up- thanks for your stories.
