As some of you know from my previous post I am 8 weeks pregnant with the mirena iud.
I went to the gyno on Tuesday and the baby was still going strong, he was the third professional to say how astonished he was to see this baby had survived the insertion of the mirena, as it is used as a abortion like technique.
He tired taking it out, which was horrific and in the end with the forceps covered in blood he still didn't succeed. He has given me two options, abort or continue with a very high risk preg to myself and baby.
Now about me, I have two boys 7 and 3, my eldest has special needs and my youngest still has issues sleeping. I am really not a patient person, I love my boys but I never ever thought with all the trouble I had with my first with his special needs and second with health problems that I would go a third, in a perfect world yes but my worlds not perfect sad
We have no support system, my parents are up north and getting older, we recently lost my mother in law to cancer and my father in law is next door but it's hard.
Everyone else has their own lives and children...
The way we are thinking is this baby has survived through the mirena insertion, 8 weeks of it in there with it and now that horrific experience of the dr trying to get the mirena out (I think) so it feels like it's meant to be, I can't walk into a clinic and abort after it's lived through so much.
But I have pressure of my parents and some others to abort, they say abort n try again. But I didn't want another, this has happened for a reason?!
But there are high risks of miscarrying, early labor, infection, placenta problems, I have read a lot of people have lost their iud babies in the second semester which would be horrific.
I want to know what you would do in my position??
I hope this doesn't offend anyone and I'm sorry for the novel smile
