The day that I found out I was pregnant was devastating! We ended our relationship before we knew about the pregnancy. Our breakup was violent and I was afraid of him. I was going through the emotions of a violent relationship and not knowing what to do about being pregnant.
I had finally made the call “I am pregnant” was what I said over the phone. All I heard from him is “How much will it cost to get rid of it!” I hung up the phone. Overwhelming emotions went through my head. I thought the breakup was bad what I was going through at this time was even worse.
Over the next few weeks, I just kept thinking the same questions over and over: “What am I going to do?” “How can I raise a baby alone?” “How would I ever tell my mom, my family?” “I cannot even take care of myself?” “I am all alone!” I was depressed, couldn’t eat, couldn’t sleep and the tears wouldn’t stop.
I knew that I needed help! I needed to talk to someone that had been through this before. Someone that wouldn’t judge, that would help me with my questions so that I could decide what to do. I found a friend on the other end of the phone. A kind person that knew what I was going through with being pregnant.
When making the call I thought I wanted to have someone tell me what to do! During the conversation I found that everything was about me, what my options were, what would be best for me and my unborn child. The support and love that I felt, I cannot even begin to describe.
