    OK so I have a 5 year old with my ex and found myself pregnant (now 8 weeks) and feel so alone and nervous.

    I work and have shared custody of my son but I’m totally terrified of no. 2 as the dad has walked away. Friends are telling me to chase him for maintenence but he begged me to have an abortion and if I went ahead with the pregnancy, I’d be doing it alone.


    I’m 40 and have been told I’ll get very little funding as I work. I’ve proven time and time again that I can’t survive in a single wage but they just brush it off.

    Anyone been in the same situation?

    Hi, I am in a really similar situation. I’m a single mum of three and after a horrific relationship with my ex and subsequent 2 years in court I met a single dad with a daughter the same age as mine. We were together with no signs of trouble until I told him I was pregnant. He has now very coldly dumped me and I am terrified of being on my own with four. I am new to this website so not 100% how to use it yet but if you ever wanted to chat with someone in the same boat that would be lovely.
