   Having gone back through the last four years worth of posts, I can safely say that I'm surprised no one has asked about... abortion. Apparently even though we're careful, the Mr. and I weren't careful enough, because my period is ten days late and a pregnancy test came up positive today.

I want babies, crave babies, love babies, and will someday have babies, but now is definitely not the time - I'll be graduating from nursing school in June, which means looking for a job probably in July/August, and even though it's illegal for employers to discriminate, the shortage of available nursing jobs (at least in Seattle) means that they can always just "pick someone more qualified." Neither the Mr. nor I have health insurance (he's self-employed), so if we did have the baby and something went wrong, hospital bills (such as the NICU) could bankrupt us in the blink of an eye. We don't want to get into debt, and since he's self-employed, we have no *guaranteed* income stream. Basically, if this happened a year from now it would be fine, but now is just not the time. (None of that is relevant to my question, but I wanted to stop people from doing the WELL HAVE YOU CONSIDERED thing... yes, we have considered. All of it.)

So, I have two options: mifepristone, or a vacuum aspiration. There are benefits and drawbacks to each. I like the idea of mifepristone, because I just have to take a pill, and then I'll bleed. That I'm used to, I've been having periods for 18 years. But, who knows when it'll kick in, how long the bleeding will last, how copiously I will bleed, etc. I also like the idea of vacuum aspiration because I can get it over and done with, and not have to worry about it again. But, I don't want an injection in my cervix (OUCH OUCH OUCH OUCH) and the idea of someone sucking everything out of my uterus with a VACUUM is just... no.

I'm curious who out there has dealt with this, which route you chose, why, what your experience was, if you wish you'd done it differently, and if you'd do it differently if you had to do it again. Any and all advice would be appreciated. My appointment is in three days. :\

Thanks all,
