"I was devastated, and shocked, seeing those two blue lines was a metaphorical slap round the face."
Charlie, tells us about her decision to have a surgical abortion at Marie Stopes UK in Bristol.
"I had a really positive experience at the Marie Stopes UK clinic in Bristol yesterday, and I'd really like to share this with others, who may be going through a difficult time.
"I have two children, aged 5 and 2, and a settled, happy marriage… As my son reached 18 months, I was beginning to see life beyond nappies and sleepless nights again.
"One night is all it took to result in an unplanned pregnancy. We were careful, but we stupidly never thought we'd get pregnant without actively 'trying', as we tried for a while to conceive both our children. I was devastated, and shocked, seeing those two blue lines was a metaphorical slap round the face. I told my husband that afternoon, and he was as gutted as me. No-one else knew. I didn't want the judgement, or any 'advice' from others.
"One of our issues that we couldn't resolve was: 'How can be compromise our children's lives?' We both work full time, and work hard to provide a good quality of life for our kids. They would lose out on so much, if we had another child. They would lose out on time with us one on one, they would not be able to have opportunities I'd want them to have."
