So I just had my first appointment with Planned Parenthood and it turns out I'm 7 weeks 1 day, just slightly past the deadline for the medical abortion. I was admittedly upset when the lady told me this during my ultrasound, because it was what I wanted. It seemed less invasive, and being in the privacy of your own home surrounded by comfort seemed the better choice. But then I sat down with a nurse who reassured me she'd choose surgical if she were in my situation and reminded me that it was "less than a 10 minute procedure."

I've been stressed out since Monday when I found out I was pregnant (3 positive tests later and me almost not believing it) and it doesn't help that my boyfriend doesn't quite 'get' it. He's very supportive and I'm lucky to death that he doesn't feel the way my parents do about the procedure; but sometimes I feel like it's impossible for anyone else to grasp the situation. And sometimes I feel alone and angry because of it.

I'm not ashamed at ALL, nor do I feel any guilt or am unsure of my decision. But I am really nervous. As nice as the nurse was and all the PP staff, I still don't really know what to expect when I go in for surgery Tuesday. I'm hoping some of you lovely ladies can help me with your experiences.. and advice, to help me not wig out so much.

I've had two medicals and a surgical. I would not choose to do a surgical again--BUT that's me. Everyone was very kind throughout the whole surgical process, and there were no complications at all. It was not a bad choice, it just wasn't my ideal. The anxiety you're feeling is totally normal, particularly since you went in expecting to be able to proceed in one direction and now have to proceed in another.

It will be over very quickly, and you'll get through it, I promise. <3
