I got preg by accident. Im very happy now, im 25 wks this week and after the initial shock, I told myself id cope. My family live at least 2 hours drive away and I dont get on with the father. This is my first baby. Despite this, I know its going to be insanley hard, but I told myself id cope and I beleived me. However, everyone keeps going "oh my god, on your own?!" Giving me a look like "you wont last 2 minutes, your insane to even try it!" And its getting me down. EVERYONE has the smae reaction, when you get told something enough you start to believe it. Please has anyone been a single mum, can you just tell me I can do it. Can ANYONE reassure me? I really need to hear that someone else has done it. All the forums are full of married ladies or ladies that are single but are living with mum. Surely Im not that much of a rare breed? HELP!
