I had a high risk for chromosome abnormality diagnosed at my 12 week scan. DH and I were devastated. The CVS done 2 days later was positive for an abnormality. Most bubs with this trisomy die in utero and all by age
1. I don't feel strong enough to keep carrying my bub and possibly have to deliver a stillborn or even if they make it to full term then have to say goodbye and explain it all to my other kids (2 and 4yo).
I am now just 13 weeks. We made the difficult decision to terminate the pregnancy but didn't realize it can't be done in hospital. I had to wait a week to get into a clinic that will do it. I feel so bad already. I wanted this bub so much! I now feel like a criminal for having this procedure. I thought my obs would do this procedure in hospital but I have to go to this clinic and have some doctor I've never met do it. Possibly have to face protesters outside.
Feel sick having to do this and can't talk to anyone about it. If I'd simply miscarried I could tell people why I am so sad, but I just can't explain this.
Can anyone tell me what the procedure is like? Will I ever feel better? Help
