    Default Booked in tomorrow, worried about after.

    Well I never thought I would find myself here but I am, I've decided an abortion is the best thing for me to do. I know I will not cope with another child and pregnancy right now. I am worried with hubby away how I will cope after, my mum is taking me and dropping me home but I will have to look after the kids myself, I have friends popping over but for the most of it I will be alone and I am really unsure how I will feel after.

    Can anyone tell me what to expect physically?

    Also I really can't wait for the morning sickness to go away can anyone tell me how long that will take?

    Sending you massive hugs xxoo

    Is there nobody you can get to stay with you at least til the kids are in bed?

    When i had mine, it took me a lot longer then expected to snap out of the anesthetic at the clinic, then I was really sick for a few hours after (vomiting, dizzy etc). I was still pretty out of it that night, and needed help with my DD, getting her to bed etc.

    You might be fine, but of you *can* get someone to give you a hand, it would be better for you as you won't have that added worry.
    Good luck xxoo

    You will be sore after wards & maybe a little feeling of the drugs they put you under. I had one last year & I found that the after affects like the bleeding & tissue was the worst. Make sure you talk to someone about it after, I found I didn't cope blamed myself for it & I have regrets that I did it.

    I'm sorry to hear that Thermolicious

    Afterwards you'll feel tired and groggy (I had nausea and vomitting, but not everyone does) from the anaesthetic and I had a period-like dull ache for a day or so.

    You really should have someone with you if you can. The last thing you'll feel like is preparing food and putting kids to bed.

    The MS takes a little while to leave your system, it tapered off for me over a few days.

    Sorry to hear you have to go through this. I have known a friend who went through it, I agree with others that you will want some help after with the kids. Sending you a

    When does your hubby get back? Is it vital for you to go in straight away as you have a bit of time? I know I couldn't do something like that without my husband there.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. Hubby isn't able to come home unfortunately, he is due back on the 20th. I'm prepping food today and I have a Coles order arriving Tuesday morning, just snack type things and bread/milk etc.
