    Smile Hi, I'm new here.

    Hi this is my first visit. I am a single mum to a 16mnth beautiful girl. Her dad took off when I was 4mnths preg. His loss. Just looking for other single parents to chat with and who understand what the daily grind is like on your own. So glad I found this forum I'm sure it will be invaluable to me. Look forward to reading your posts and getting to know you all. Everyone who is a single parent is a"SUPER HERO'' and we should never forget that.

    Hi there!!

    I am super new to this aswell! Just joined up tonight actually.. Sounds like we're both kind of in the same situation.. I have a beautiful 18month old daughter!! Her father left when I was about 5 months pregnant too.. But its definately his loss!! And to be honest, I'm kinda glad I don't have to share her!
    Anyways just thought I'd say hello!!

    Hi to both of you. I joined about 2 months after i found i was pregnant and am now mum to my 15 week old baby girl Madisyn. I too am a single parent - very long story cut short, i fell pregnant, FOB didn't want to know so split up with me and is now wanting to come back into the picture but is causing a lot of problems. Trust me, you will both find great advice and support from other members - i know they have helped my through some tough times. Hope to chat soon

    Hi ladies,

    I'm 13weeks pregnant with my first, recently single and must say I am struggling. Just when I feel like I am going to be okay, I see all the other Mothers with their partners or at least wedding rings. It makes me feel like I am the only one in the whole world going through this alone. I know y'all are out there but I never seem to see it. I have a great family who are supportive, but not a lot of money and I am afraid that I am not going to be strong enough for this baby. I feel like I am the perfect candidate to get post-natal depression because of the stress I am under and I am so scared of that happening. I want this baby to have a beautiful life with a happy mother but I don't know how to heal myself from the hurt and get through this. I'm not sure if there is really any advice you can give me, but it helps even just to vent. I have a whole new respect for single parents.
