Hi all! Anonymous account for obvious reasons.
Long story short: I moved a few countries over to pick up a seasonal park ranger posture. While here, I met a cute conservation officer, we really hit it off, and on our first date we had drinks, hooked up, and he came inside of me( we were both drunk and in the heat of the moment. No protection, Im not currently on birth control. Absolutely stupid, I know. Aghhh .) This was Thursday, May 27 th. I didn’t realize that he came inside of me until a week later.
Fast forward to this weekend. I’m a couple of weeks late for my period, and I decide to take a pregnancy test on Saturday, June 6th. It demonstrates as negative. A couple of days later on June 8th, I take another one that depicts as positive. I’ve take three more and all show as positive.
I reached out to him as soon as possible and he’s been very supportive of my decision and will do whatever is necessary to make sure I’m comfortable. I’m scheduled to have this taken care of in a little under two weeks. With my career objectives, I simply can’t have this sort of thing happen.
I feel extremely anxious and also alone. I’m afraid to tell my parents and also my best friends. I’ve just moved to this new state a couple of months ago and don’t know anyone other than my coworkers.
I’m curious though – I’m extremely surprised that the pregnancy test was able to detect that I was pregnant less than two weeks after having unprotected sex. Is this normal?
What are some things that I can do to induce myself comfy after I have taken my second set of pills? What can I expect as far as the pain goes?
I do appreciate your time reading through this and calming my nerves. This doesn’t even feel real to me right now.
Edit: YOU GUYS. THANK YOU !!! I frantically typed this out over my lunch and have come back to SO many astonishing commentaries !! When I have a little more time I will go through and read everything! Thank you for being the astounding, supportive community of women that “youre ever” !!!
Edit 2: Got home from run, decompressed, checked this thread and also my messages. I’m seriously floored at how many of you took the time to send me a kind word – I cannot expressed appreciation for enough. You guys, this really means the world to me. I’m reading through every commentary and message and I feel a lot more relieved. Also empowered by my decision!
In case you were curious, I’m really lucky in that the guy this is happening with still wants to be with me after all of this. He checks in with me often. He says he’ll be with me when it passes. We don’t know each other very well( only like a month ?), but it’s very nice of him to be so supportive.
Again, expressed appreciation for from the bottom of my heart. You’re all really wonderful
