Quoting MomMommyMa+1:" Good for you! I think there is nothing wrong with feeling some relief. I'd take relief over regret ... [snip!] ... another is totally understandable. I'd probably do the same if I wasn't ready. it's about what's best for your family too. "
Oh absolutely, my living children came first. Having a third child would have taken the little i am already struggling to give, away.. and who am i to do that to my children, i needed ultimately to do what's best for all three of my children. It's not a ..pleasant way of protecting a child, but that's how i thought about it. When i was struggling with the choice at first, i told my self this was/is what's best for the entire family. Fetus was included.
I have no regrets, and i don't think i ever will, even in a place where i am no longer struggling to feed my living children, will i sit and dwell on the fact i chose abortion.
It's only what's best for the mother, and her family.
oh, and thank you.
