I knew I was pregnant as soon as I was around two weeks. I had never been pregnant before, but I knew. My body felt.. different. My period had just ended a week and a half prior, so it was not by judgement of my period being missed. I told my boyfriend of over two years that I thought I was. Unfortunately, he did not believe me and instead thought I was playing some sick joke on him. I became worried and waited. (I do NOT do well with limbo.) I waited for my period to come around and it did not. I decided to go to the grocery store and buy two pregnancy tests. I took the first test at 9:00 p.m. It came back positive. I took it out to him while he was unloading groceries and we cried together for a bit. I knew the decision I had to make, as did he. We both agreed on abortion, the medicinal way. I called Planned Parenthood and they were extremely helpful. I was only 5 weeks by this time, and was not far enough to go in for an abortion. I was told to wait another two weeks, and go in for an appointment. The wait was long and the morning sickness was TERRIBLE. I puked all the time and my breasts were super sore. I even gained a cup size from the swelling. Fortunately, I had my boyfriend by my side the entire time. At the clinic, they made the process smooth. Although it was lengthy, and I did pass out from not having anything in my stomach; it was easy. They explained everything to me and I went on my way. Nervous is probably the best way to describe the way I felt. I am comfortable with my choice.
