So 8 years ago I was on here in the TTC threads and then in the March mummies group of 2009. Now I am going to be a grandma in just over 6 months.
Freaking out slightly. I'm 36 and my daughter is 17... She was on Depo when she got pregnant and only found out by accident. Went to the hospital for pancreatitis and a routine blood test revealed she was 7 weeks.
Her now ex boyfriend had convinced her to have an abortion- she had the initial
Appointment, the blood tests and ultrasound but couldn't go through with it
She is now planning on being a single mum with mine and my husbands (her dads) help. The ex had said he will be there for the baby but I'm yet to be convinced. A week ago he was literally balling his eyes out because she was ruining his life 😡
Anyway I spent a lot of time here getting support so I thought I'd comeback now that I need it again. I've had 4 children but this grandma thing is new and scary
Oh and I don't want to be grandma or nanna or nonni... Need to come up with something else 🤔

My mum is called Ma, how about that? I'm 37 too with toddlers and a girl in my year level from high school is posting pics of her grandson 😐.
I think it's fantastic you're supporting her. I definitely wouldn't expect anything from the exboyfriend. It can only lead to disappointment there.
Congratulations on your new grandchild!
