I am so sorry you have to go through this again, Una! Good luck to you!

Una, I feel kind of like a jerk telling my experience...I don't mean to be the melodramatic, scare-monger. I really do think *my* experience was just bad, so ignore my scariness!

you're not a jerk at all! you deserve to be able to talk about your experience as much as anyone else. the only thing that bothered me about your post was saying that you're "surprised it's legal at all," and i felt the need to remind una and everyone else that your experience is fortunately rare and that medical abortion is very safe and a great option for a lot of people.

No, sharing is always good! There's always risks involved with any medical procedure (or pretty much doing anything), and information is always helpful. I only posted because I didn't want people to be scared off by your experience.

I don't want anyone to be scared off, either. I guess my comment about being surprised it is legal at all came out of a gut reaction when I think about that whole experience. I'm 100% pro-choice...and I don't believe in legislating in any way what women do with their reproductive choices, so yes, it is very much a valid option, as well. Just scary *to me.*

I've been to the clinic, now I'm in bed and I have to say that I feel like shiitake. I won't be documenting things as they happen, I just wanted to let everyone know where I was at.

Lachesis, your experience is as valid and useful to hear as anyone else's. There is nothing wrong with coming here to share, that's what I asked for: women who have gone through it to talk to me about it. Thank you for that. I know that it's hard to share... You'll only receive love from me. <3

I understood what you meant by the legal comment, and I'm sorry it was so painful/traumatic/terrifying. Una, I'm hoping everything goes quickly and smoothly from here on out.

I'm adding another hug! You need the biggest bed ever to accomodate all of us and our incessant hugging.

*smooches*

Thanks! All the hugs and warmth and love have really helped.
I'm in my pajamas watching cartoons as my daughter makes a mess of the place. I refuse to stop her. We've been eating junk food all day and watching spongebob.

I still feel like shiitake.

Do you feel better, Una? I really hope your streak of bad luck ends soon. There are some people that the world just doesn't let up on, and it's not fair.

Well... It's over with and I had my follow up visit this last Wednesday. They put in a Paraguard IUD and told me to take it easy for another week.

Thank you, Ladies. You're all amazing.

I'm glad it's all over and done with. Hopefully that Paraguard will mean not having to worry about this kind of thing again for a long time. Hugs to you.

Una, I'm so sorry you had to go through all of this, especially with everything else you've had to deal with. I'm glad it's over.
