Anybody doing it on their own?


So as the title says really anybody been or going to be a single pregnant Mamma?

So I have two beautiful baby boys almost 2 and 4 who I dote on! Their my world. I was with their dad for 5 years and he left me last June six weeks before our wedding.

I then got into another relationship stupidly fast it was all too much, and I ended things, but that same week I found out I was expecting baby Bean, I know itís going to be so hard but this baby is 100% wanted and Iíll do all I can for it and more.

Fast forward Iím now 10 weeks and have my midwife today, I just wondered if anybody else was doing it alone? Me and my babies dad are in speaking terms and he wants to 100% be involved.

Please be kind lol xxx

Good for you girl.

I did it for a bit on my own when my eldest was 3. Actually loved every second of it just being me and him. It was the best time of my life giving him all my attention.

You got this xx

Thatís great heís supportive and wants to be involved. Nothing wrong with doing it on your own. It takes a strong woman to be a single mother. I was raised by one.

Hey, I think I remember you from when I was pregnant with my 4 year old!

I am a single parent to her and my 5 year old with no involvement from their father in the last 3.5 years. It's great FOB wants to be involved. You've got this!

Hugs gl! Iím on my own and mid custody battle. You learn to manage. Today, I assembled a tv stand while my 5.5 month only played on his playmat across the room and you get really good at eating one handed lol. You rest when you need it, get stuff done when you can, prioritize, and rely on friends and family for support. Idk your exes but my life is easier and less work/stress with his butt gone. Just take it a day at a time. Take family or friends to scans of you donít want to go alone. You got this
