    Hi choosingtogoitalone.

    Thankyou so much for your message.

    Aww congratulations on your pregnacy!!! So glad IVF worked out for you.

    That’s exactly how I keep feeling, I’m so happy about my pregnancy but I am so sad that it’s not the way I imagined it going, doing it alone without someone I love. And then I feel guilty for being sad.

    I just feel a bit lost in myself now.

    I’m going to join a pregnancy yoga class soon so hopefully I will start to feel better.

    How far along are you in your pregnacy?

    Is anyone going to, or has been to the baby show in Birmingham before? Just wondered what it was like and if it was worth going?

    It’s a bit overwhelming and there is a lot of walking involved . Go online and get some ideas by visiting baby  sectionns.you dont want to get too many gadgets as you will end up not using them . write a list of what is needed and who is going to bring you both home from hospital.

    Also do a good food shop beforehand and get basics like longlife milk,nappies, wipes,  loo roll etc.. you will be drained and your don’t wanto be going out shopping.

    Get yourself an A5 note book and start writing things down and go out and get some baby mags . I went to.john Lewis and mother care to get some ideas and prices .if you don’t want new go on line and see what you can get second hand . Buggy is the most expensive and you will need a crib so look at these . Good luck .

    That’s a good idea I’m going to do that now. Is there a particular kind of buggy I will need for a new born or is ant ok? There’s so many different kinds.

    Thankyou x

    It depends if you are driving then try maxi Cosi . When you come out of hospital you will need to put baby on car seat or they won’t let you out..I got maxi cosi because it can adapted..I stopped using when my daughter reached 3 because it was too small. It’s very expensive so look for something affordable. Try to.be positive you should change your user name to something positive..the name ghost is do sad and you got lots to.looknfirward to

    Hi ladies, I hope you’re all doing well.

    I have an appointment booked for this Friday for a termination. I feel pushed into a corner by my ex (the father).

    Ill be 17weeks. I really don’t want to go through with a termination, but as I’ve said in earlier messages I don’t have my own home, I’m not financially stable and the ex is saying I’m crazy considering doing this on my own in these circumstances. He says I’m being totally selfish wanting to keep the baby and my life will be miserable as I’ll have no money, ending up living in a council house.

    I know that no one can make this decision for me, but am I crazy thinking I can do this in my situation?

    You not crazy at all hes just saying all that coz he thinks if you have the baby you be at him for child support and to make himself feel better. I don’t own my own house am in council and you have a way to go to think about everything else if it’s not what you want want then don’t do it.

    You do not listen to your ex because that is why he is your ex.

    You can turn your life around if you are worried that you can’t provide for your child ..the government helps working single parents and they will top.up salary which will help with child care if you decide to go back to work

    Bringing up a child on.your own is not all doom.and gloom and you will.meet people who will.hsve a positive effect on your life.. stay away from anyone who does not have a good word to say

    Of course things are expensive but that’s why we have eBay and car boot sales

    You have bonded with your child only you can make this decision . Just listen to your heart and dont bother with this loser.
