Submitted to Abort73 by a 21-year-old woman on September 9, 2014.
I found out I was pregnant at four weeks. My boyfriend and I were in complete shock. Although we love each other, we thought that it wasn’t the right time. We haven’t finished school and we both still live with our parents. Part of me wanted to have the baby, and part of me thought it wasn’t the right time. Everything happened so fast, and all I could think about was me. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about the baby, and how selfish of me it was. I miss my baby every day and have dreams about the baby all the time—which makes me really sad to wake up and know it was just a dream. I wish I could go back and realize that God’s timing is always right. If I was pregnant, I should have taken care of my baby.
