I've had to have two terminations due to severe abnormalities with the fetus...
My first went really well, I healed normally, had minimal pain, and was pretty much up and functioning three days later. I had great support from my sister and mother, who didn't even tell my dad what was going on.
My second was a disaster... The technicians put an ultrasound monitor right in front of my face and were trying to convince me not to do it, even went as far as to tell me I would pay for what I was doing to my child and were showing me the parts of him/her. They gave me no pain medication so I felt the whole thing. I bled uncontrollably until I got pregnant with my 15 month old daughter. The procedure was on January 22 of 2010 and I got pregnant with Annika in late May or early June of 2010. It was terrible, and scary, and my medical coverage expired a week after my procedure so I couldn't go to my OBGYN to find out what was going on... my mother refused to take me to the ER and told me she thought I was just over-reacting. I felt soooo alone. It was scary.
So I was just wondering, has anyone else had an experience anything like my second? Just thought I would put it out there to see if I'm not the only one.
I didn't have any issues with bleeding but I had a horrible experience at the clinic.
The waiting room had a church show playing, the doctor forced me to tell my mother even though I was 17.. the worst though was when a nurse was trying to console another patient and looked right at me and said "Don't worry, you're not very far along so it what you're doing isn't bad" or something along those lines (I had a late term abortion and I KNOW she was taking a stab at me for it). I think the crappy experience I had is partially to blame for the long emotional recovery I faced after my abortion.
