I had an abortion twice this year. One was around August, and the second today being Nov17th. I was actually devastated when I found out i was pregnant for the second time. To me, I actually felt dat it was too soon to be having another abortion, and at some point I was scared something was going to go wrong in the process. But fortunately for me the cramps and bleeding wasn't as high as the first one. Am just hoping it worked, though I passed out few blood clots. Am still waiting for 1 or 2 weeks to go for an ultrasound scan. It was hell though but just for few hours. Thanks to God and my boyfriend who stood by me.
