Anyone going through it alone

Just wanting to hear from others that are going through/been through pregnancy alone. Would like to hear about others experiences, and how you coped. Feeling anxious at the moment while I'm trying to let it all sink in.

Hi Worried , Just wanted to say I hope you are ok. Are you near by to people that can support you? we are all on here to listen and support but i know that is not the same xxxx

I have quite a lot of support but

Sorry.. Still feel alone, been really tearful but hoping I'll start to feel more positive.

Hope you are ok! I am going through pregnancy alone, but I'm not. I am married, but DH is away on tour so have been alone for the last 7 weeks, and will be till due date. I know it isn't quite the same as if baby daddy isn't around at all.
The biggest thing is to make sure you have lots of support, close friends or family who you can talk to openly without feeling judged. Give yourself a break too - emotions run high anyway in pregnancy, even more so if you feel alone. It's hard, but you'll be ok!

Really worried I'm not going to cope. Feeling fat and frumpy too, worried I'm going to get enormous. Wish there was somewhere nice I could go to for a few months where I can be looked after! Sorry, that sounded so needy.

39+4 now and been flying solo since 20 week's though the ffather emotionally left us long before that, it's hard especially now ds is practically here and I won't lie I'm terrified of having a baby by myself but once he's here I know we'll be fine. How far along are you? Here for hand holding and support, if you ever want someone to chat to or just vent at feel free to message me smile cake

I'm 11 wks. My ex kept/still is pushing me to have a termination but I've made my decision now. My emotions are all over the place and it doesn't feel real. I know someone would come to the scans/appts with me, but I feel I should be independent and do it alone. In a way I'd like to go to the scans by myself, maybe to allow myself to bond with the bump?!

It's nice to hear of others in a similar situation, but sorry you're going through it too. Shame we can't support each other in rl.

I did and he's now three years old the biggest thing I will say is if your ex is anything like mine please ignore him until you have had baby unless he wants to be involved properly. Mine ruined being pregnant with him being so nasty funny thing is he doesn't see him now after months of misery it's his own choice aswell he walked away when my little boy was 3 months
