My husband and I had two beautiful children. The youngest was 15 months. It had been harder with two than one and we had multiple other challenges including my mother being very sick. We had been using condoms but had perhaps not been careful enough. When I realised I was pregnant I was horrified and my husband was concerned too. We felt that a third child at that time, and possibly ever, would place too much strain on our relationship and family which would make life more difficult too for our children. It was a hard decision to take as at my age (41) we are unlikely to have more kids now. The process was hard, too, even as an early drug-induced abortion as brought back memories of an earlier miscarriage.But it was the right decision and I have not regretted it.
