I had an abortion less than 5 months ago.

I started to feel ill and not right, I would be starving one second and then as soon as I took a bite I would feel like throwing up. After it happened a couple of times I just had this feeling I was pregnant but I didn't want to believe it. It took me 2 weeks to get the courage to go to the doctor's and get a test and sure enough I was right, I was pregnant.

15 and pregnant.

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

2 miscarriages in a year.

I know you all mean well when you say things like “your time will come” or “I know someone who just stopped trying and then it happened for them” or “get a dog, it will take your mind off things” I hate having to lie to people who ask “are we planning on having children” as we have been married over 2 years….or when they say “ooh that will be you next…” and I have to smile and reply…”yes hopefully one day” or “we haven’t really thought about that yet”

My parents are forcing me to terminate.

I am 16 years old. Just over two weeks ago I went to the doctors, I did a home pregnancy test which came up positive. At the doctors I did two urine tests which came up NEGATIVE as well as the blood test. A few days ago I went back to get the implant put in.
