    Default I Think I'm Ready For This...

    Hi all,
    I just found out today that I'm pregnant... I have a 3yo DS I split from his father two years ago had a one night stand a few weeks back was careless and bamm here I am. No one in my family really know except my mum who is being very supportive.
    The father is completely out of the picture as I've just learnt that he is a hard core drug user and has a violent history from armed hold ups to sexual assault (if I had of known this at the time I would never have went anywhere near him!)
    So anyway the point to this is I'm preparing myself to becoming a single mum to two beautiful children who I will love with all my heart. I know it's going to be hard but I have a pretty good feeling the rest of my family will be supportive.
    So really my question is has anyone ever been in this situation? What's the hardest thing about it? Am I crazy for being excited to begin this wild journey??

    Yes, pretty much almost the same, except my second child's father is my BIL's best mate so I've known him 10+ years and he's a successful entrepreneur so I struck it lucky there and he's a very involved father to DD.

    But yeah, apart from that I'm a single mum to two kids. Pregnancy was an emotional time being alone, but I am doing great now. I work full time and financially we're doing well

    Congrats on your pregnancy! I'm pregnant with my first so can't really relate to having two children and being single but I can relate to being single and pregnant. It's hectic but you sound like you're going to handle it all really well

    Wow, that is some adventure. You will be fine, as long as you love your kids and they love and respect you.
    We have an amazing step Dad in our family, and are doing wellish. We met on an online dating site. Lol!
    Not the "smartest" ways to meet someone, but he is pretty much my kid's Dad except that his name isnt on the birth certificate.
    I wouldnt change my decision to have my little Rose any day. I was on a very rocky road with the 2nd pregnancy, but ny family decided to support me more the second time round.

    Congrats and good luck.

    By the way.. noone will ask about the kids Dads, on the very very rude and nosey people do... to those people you just have to say that its none of their business. Which is true anyway. They just want an inlook into your life which you wont give them! Hahaha!
