Don't know if I should post, I'm not technically a single parent. But with hubby in Iraq for the 2nd time, I feel like one. He left 2 weeks after Joe was born, so I've been doing this on my own since then. tank.gif

Those people who tell you you're wrong to keep the baby are nuts!!!!!! wacko.gif It's YOUR baby, and nothing changes that. Stick to your guns, and tell those others to take a hike! Nothing is worth murdering your child, nothing. soapbox.gif

And good luck with the new little life you're bringing into the world! Parenthood is a great responsibility, but it comes with great rewards.

Hey I think that it shows that you are a strong woman to have all these people pressuring you to do something that you feel is wrong. I think you should keep the baby, the way you feel is not going to change and you will feel awful about it later. This ex of yours might come around and be apart of the childs life, maybe. But either way make sure he pays child support and everything will work out.

Sorry to here that! I praise you for keeping your baby! It must have been a really difficult descision. I was in a similar situation when I was pregnant with Kailyn.

Me and the father had been casually dating for about 5 months when I fell pregnant. I told him and he pegged it, never seen him run so fast. I was completely lost, I was only 20 years old! I knew I couldn't abort my baby, it wasn't the baby's fault. 4 months into the pregnany I met Jake, He was the sweetest, and he is now like a dad to Kailyn. Kailyn hsn't met her real dad, but she calls Jake dad. He proposed the day after I had Kailyn and we are getting married next year, we are also expecting a daughter in October! I'm so glad about my desicion to keep her, things have all worked out!

They will work out for you too! You have been so strong to do this on your own and I wish you the best of luck with your baby! Congrats!!! baby.gif hug.gif

unsure.gif I know that is is scary to raise a child on your own. I am doing it and have from the very beginning. I made some bad mistakes before my son was born and have learned from them. It's hard to concentrate when you are pregnant and people are trying to tell you what would be best for the other person or for you. The best thing to do is do what is best for you . I made a decision that I was going to raise my son with or without his fathers help. His father isn't in the picture. We are going good. My son has taught me so much since he has been born. I love him more than I could love anything.

if you need someone to talk to please feel free to send me an email. thumb.gif

Do you have any family support around you? Or a really close friend?

Do not have an abortion if you are uncomfortable with it .There are many single mothers out there who are great moms and bring up happy and healthy children and there is no reason why you cannot be one of these moms!

I know you are scared now but in a few months time, your boyfriend will become irrelevant in your life when you first hold your baby. And there is always the possibility that your boyfriend will realize how much he loves you and will want to be with you and the baby.

Stand strong and ask your family to help you out if you need it. You can be a fantastic mom even without your boyfriend. If he cannot see that and take the responsibility of fatherhood with you then you are better off without him anyway!

Good luck!
