Pregnancy choices

Struggling with wait for abortion

I have not eaten for four days, I can't concentrate on anything, I can't sleep.

I have tried my local hospital (in fact rang them back in tears begging for something sooner), Bpas, Marie Stopes. The earliest I can have just a telephone consultation is 10th November which doesn't sound too far away but feels like forever. I breastfeed my toddler and my milk supply is running out because of the pregnancy and is very distressing for both him and me. I can pay £450 to have a consultation with another private company I've found online next week but really can't afford that.

I can't cope with this.

Woah, having to wait 2 weeks for just a consult is harsh!! I am sorry OP - it must feel dreadful. I don't have any suggestions I'm afraid, just offering a handhold.

I'm 7 weeks.

Due a scan on Tuesday with EPU that was arranged due to ongoing bleeding and now I don't know what to do about that. I just can't believe there's nothing sooner. This is making me so ill on top of the pregnancy nausea.

Sorry you are experiencing this.
Unfortunately not eating for days is going to do nothing for your supply, you need to force some food and fluids down somehow. Pregnancy can change your milk too but it is possible to feed through it so don’t focus on that too much, it’s self fulfilling if you think your supply is stopping. It probably isn’t, it’s just hormones.

I’d do everything possible to find the £450. Can you credit card it and worry about it later? Do you have a partner? Who might be able to help you with a loan?

@Collywobble12 hope it all went okay for you in the end! Im currently waiting for an abortion and still breastfeeding my little but ive noticed my milk supply has taken a big hit, did yours return after the abortion? I feel like this could also bring breastfeeding to an end and im not sure im ready for that😢

@Xoxo I didn't proceed with abortion and have decided to keep my baby - I posted another thread about it as I took the first tablet and instantly regretted it and didn't continue with the abortion. I am still breastfeeding my son although he isn't getting much milk, he's happy to comfort feed still. More than when he was getting milk actually.

I hope your journey all goes okay for you.
