No, there is no pill that will terminate a 5 month along pregnancy. At this point you will need surgical intervention to discontinue the pregnancy. Have you ever considered going through with the pregnancy and giving the babe up for adoption. This could be a most precious gift for a couple who desperately want a babe of their own and cant have one. There are many very well-to-do or even very wealthy couples out there who would give a baby a most wonderful life. It could be a great, unselfish gift to your babe (who never asked to be conceived in the first place) and a lucky couple. You are over the halfway mark and in the home stretch of this pregnancy. I wish that more women would consider this rather than termination of a pregnancy. I know it is a hard decision either way-to terminate or to give up a baby. This baby is already developed and looks like a baby now-it is conscious and can feel pain.
I'm not trying to be judgemental or cruel, I just want to present another option to you. I understand if your circumstances dont allow the continuation of the pregnancy but truly think long and hard about what a great gift this could be to this little life. You could be giving it a chance at a beautiful life with loving parents. Who knows what potential this little infant has in front of him or her. What if Albert Einstein or Martin Luther King or Mother Theresa's mother had aborted them-you just never know what potential this little one has. They may be the one who learns to cure cancer or AIDS. Allowing him/her life and giving them a chance at love and happiness is a very precious and very unselfish sacrifice and wonderous gift on your part. In some cases the prospective parents will help to cover your medical costs if you carry to term and deliver. I really dont mean to be cruel-I just think that many times women who go through what you are dont consider this as much as they should. This is just food for thought. I am not against abortions by any means. I do understand that sometimes it is the best course of action and the best option but as far along as this pregnancy is, it is more dangerous for you to go through. You risks for bleeding and infection are much greater the further along you are. There is no easy out on this one. Just think of what a gift you have the power in your hands (or belly) to give!!! To both the child and some loving couple. It is your body and your little one to decide as you will but think that this little one, if given a chance, would choose to live. Please consider. I am sorry if I have offended or upset you but I could not, in good conscious, not present this possible option to you. Yes, it is a few more months of discomfort (and heartache) on your part but there is no greater expression of unselfish love than for a mother to give her child a chance at life. God bless and keep you and I hope that you make the right decision! Again, I know this is a delicate subject and I'm sorry if I hurt you. All the Best! DzooBaby
Thank you dear Dzoo for such a wonderful answer. I was one of those people who could not carry a pregnancy. Each pregnancy (3) ended up in a miscarriage and was the most heartbreaking time of my life. I still grieve over the loss of my children.
Hazelnut... ending this child's life will change your life forever... and not for the good my dear. I am not trying to be mean... just honest and I am trying to say something so that will not be haunted for the rest of your life.
Raj is right... you need to see an obstetrician. You need to see your baby in an ultrasound and see that he or she is a fully formed human being.
You will fervently be in my prayers dear hazelnut. Pup
Rajive dezoobaby and pup are absolutly correct they have said everything I would have with an epidersl at delivery contractions nt that bad. The real question to me is why do you wanna end this sweetheart? I really think you should talk about that! It will be alright please talk about it!!! Jaime
