Hi just wondering if anyone else here is pregnant and currently single? I'm 13 weeks pregnant after a one night stand and not found anyone in a similar situation but I can't be the only one. My family are being really supportive but I'm worried what other people will say when I start telling people.

It would be good to chat to anyone in a similar situation

Thanks x

Hi Emma there was a group of us on here that were single parents for various reasons e.g. sperm donation or partner passing etc.

I can't seem to find the post but there was a lot of support and I'm sure there will be some people along soon smile

I wouldn't worry too much about what people will say, as long as you are happy and have the support of your family then sod the rest of them, some people aren't happy unless they have someone to gossip about and if they can't be happy for you are they really people you want around?

I hope everything progresses well with your pregnancy, is this your first? flowers

Im 32 weeks preganant and single. Me and the babies father were together for some time before the pregnancy however the relationship broke down. What i tend to find is not so much people judge but they will unintentionally make you feel like ots abnormal to not have a partner . Im managing just fine and yes i do get emotional sometimes seeing families going thru it together but hey its 2017 and who needs to fit into the 'norm' for the most part im happy as can be and my little lady will be aswell im sure

I'm single after my boyfriend of 2 years split up with me after I became pregnant through a contraceptive failure and wouldn't have a termination, encouraged by his dear mother who also tried to "persuade" me to have one.

My parents and friends are being incredibly supportive which is pretty much the only reason why I'm coping at all, well that plus the counselling I'm having. I'm currently 15 weeks and hoping he still might come round to the idea at some point.
