    With my first son I was a single mom, Only advice I can give is let your mother be your best friend, I never got along with mine until I found out I was pregnant at 17. After that we are so close she is my number 1 support system. Even tho I'm married now she and my son are very close We actually share joint custody of him, Because if anything ever happened to me I would never want him going to his father. Another thing is ask for help or if someone offers take it being young and a single mom I found it so much harder.

    Me :wave:

    No advice as I haven't done it yet, just be prepared for every other pregnant person you meet being in a couple (I wrongly assumed that the growing yoga class or antenatal classes might have one or two in them but apparently not)!

    Come join us in the single parents forum, under the parenting section. Lots of us in the same kinds of situation and lots of advice if you need it, if not just have a nose ;-) xx

    I'm 27 weeks and have been single since about 14 weeks .

    Honestly - my best advice would let your mom be your best friend . Me and my mom had no relationship and had nooo positive communication for 2 years - until i found out i was pregnant and since then our relationship has gone up hill .


    :hugs: GOOD LUCK !

    I think the ladies here have said it all.

    I was a single mother with my first baby at 19 years old. I was very close with my mother and sister. They were my support system, and got me through so much!

    It's hard to juggle being young and being a mom. Finding the balance is important!!!

    I'm a single mamma I'm fortunate as I have a 5 year old boy (who is terribly excited and helpful) and am having my second (a girl) in 3 weeks, her dad is sadly an alcoholic so will not be having anything to do with her unless he can change his ways - but we are not together and will not ever be again. I will take each day as it comes and I know my mum is there for me. I'm a little worried about how I will cope - but we women always find away! Good luck with everything - if you want to talk ever just drop me a line. :) x
