    Just new on here tonight and have just found out I’m preg with a baby from a casual relationship. I already have a 9 YO from a previous relationship. I have a secure home and work full time. I’m wondering if anyone ever has been in a similar boat and if I can do this again on my own as not confident the dad will want to know.

    I’m 31 and hoping to make some new friends too.


    Thanks for reading 🙂

    How are you doing now with everything?

    I’m in a similar situation, I have a stable home and job.

    I’m 13 weeks pregnant, I was with the baby’s dad for 8 months, he wanted me to have an abortion but I’ve decided to keep the baby and haven’t heard from him for 2 weeks.

    I have an 11 year old daughter from a previous relationship and I’m going to tell her about this pregnancy next week when she is back from her dad’s. I am really nervous about telling her, I don’t think she will be happy that the baby’s dad is not wanting to be involved and I don’t want her to stress about me, I hope she will be happy.

    How did your 9 year old react? And how has it been with the dad?

    I am ready to be both your friends I can offer u emotional support through your pregnancy and beyond. It is both your decisions if you want to go through with the pregnancy or not. That is both your decisions. I will be supportive you both either way. You will have the support of all the gingerbread members as well.

    Only you can make that decision. Good luck!

    Thanks Katherine,
