I was 20 years old when I got pregnant.

I was 20 years old when I got pregnant. I had been with my boyfriend at the time for 3 years. He always told me that he couldn't wait to start a family with me.... What a lie. October of 2016 I took a pregnancy test, I didn't think I was pregnant but thought I was just late because I was late all the time. He was at football practice, he was one of the high school varsity coaches, I was at his house and was waiting for him to come home. He came inside and I told him I had something to tell him and I just told him. His face went blank and the very first words that came out of his mouth were "we can't do this" and he picked up his phone and started looking up abortion clinics. I begged him for 2 weeks straight to just let me have this baby but he always threatened to beat me and I was legitimately terrified of him so I went through with it. I absolutely hate myself for making that decision because I have ruined a part of me forever and I will never forgive myself. I broke up with him shortly after the abortion and am completely disgusted by this man. I now have an amazing and supportive husband and we have an amazing 1 year old boy who is my absolute everything and our little baby girl is due in a little over 4 weeks.
