so i know im pregnant and i know that im going to get an abortion next week and since im getting an abortion i haven't treated my body like it's pregnant(smoking, drinking)but today my boyfriend and i had sex and when i went to the bathroom afterwards i noticed some blood or almost like watered down blood on the toilet paper and my boyfriend noticed some of the same blood on his penis. Could this just be some spotting or maybe a miscarrage?

Misscarriage usually involves a lot of blood. But if you suspect you are having one, you should seek medical help immediately. Your irresponsible behavior towards your body is increasing the risk of miscarriage which is far more dangerous to you than a clinical abortion.

Is your life only worth something when you're pregnant? I think not.

Bobo's point though, was that you're increasing your risk for miscarriage, which in itself can be detrimental to your health.

Quitting the smoking and drinking for at least the next week or two would be advisable (And that's not saying you should go back to it. You shouldn't. But first things first ... You need to stop now. You need to take care of your body, baby or no).

you guys are right. this whole being pregnant thing has made me realize that i DO need to start taking care of my body. I only realized it once i had another being inside of me that relied on me and only me to care for it and do what's right. Im going to smoke one last cigarette after Thanksgiving dinner and quit "cold turkey" ha. Thanks for the criticism!
