Ur in the right place :) Welcome to BG. The thought of being a single mom is super scary, but I promise it'll be worth it.

I personally think being a single mother is easier, maybe not financially, but in general.

It really is. I love being able to make decisions on my own and never having to rely on anyone else to help me with anything.

Thank you everything is pretty manic at the minute being a waitress and it coming up to christmas plus buying all the baby and trying to get in touch with my ex.

I spent less on Excedrin ;) ;)



But OP, welcome to BG. It's a scary thought but when you baby is here everything will seem to natural, sometimes it may be hard and you may ask yourself when are you going to be able to take a piss by yourself....but when you look back on it it's so worth it.

I joined BG in 2008 as a jobless pregnant soon to be 20 year old single mother.
4 years later I am still very active, was recently married to my husband, a girl I met on BG actually led our wedding ceremony. and have a healthy almost 4 year old and trying for my next. This place has been a great source of information.

Sorry to hear you are on your own. It can be done. There are some really great single moms out there.

My mom was a single mom with my sister until she met my dad and they got married when my sister was 5 and he legally adopted her (my sister didn't have a bio father on her birth certificate) and then they had me and my brother and we are all happy and my parents are still together :)

Good luck!

You may lose friends but to be honest the ladies on BG are amazing support. DO NOT let a cat fight that you may see scare you off. I have met some ladies off here IRL and text others frequently. These BG mommas are the best.
