I have not been well, depressed in my bed, I look sick I feel it. Sometimes It feels like I'm dying with the baby. When I initially went in I was too early to see anything on ultrasound scan and had to go back 10 days later. I took the first pill at 6 weeks 2 days. It was torture. No matter what I couldn't find any joy in this pregnancy. I thought I was making the right choice. Honestly I still feel that way, except I know right from wrong. I know I've done wrong.
When I found I out I was pregnant, I just collapsed inside, knowing that I messed up thinking what am I going to do? It turned out that when I actually knew that I was pregnant, because I stupidly didn't take a pregnancy test because it just came to me, missing my periods, fatigue and that one night, I went 17 weeks without really knowing that I was pregnant, until the day I felt it move. I wasn't thinking straight, or anything at the time just that I made a mistake with someone who didn't care
