    Hi

    I’m totally new to this! I’m currently a single mum to an 12yr old and I’m pregnant with twins! Clearly not with their father but I must admit I’m lonely like finding it hard to relate to people making friends  as my so called “friends” have run a mile as I’m pregnant! Anyways thanks for reading and hello btw!

    Hello, crikey you must be wondering how you will cope with twins, hopefully you will get some support. I know what it’s like to be single and pregnant, just look after yourself and babies as best you can, be healthy, cry if you need to, get fresh air/walks. I practised something called hypbobirthing to help prepare as first birth was awful – the techniques helped me to relax and I had an incredibly easy birth and quick Labour. I lost some friends but you have to be philosophical, be your own best friend and grateful for any support you get. Stay positive. I just read a book called I am enough by Marisa peer which really helped my outlook. Good luck 😉

    Thank you for your reply, I’m quite heavily into reading atm so I’ll have a look for the book. I know it’s going to be super hard looking after two newborns as well as my daughter but I’m super looking forward to it like I can’t wait to meet my babies and expand my brood!

    Hi there

    I’m really made up for you hun x

    Don’t worry about these ‘friends’. I’ve lost friends over the years but you can make better friends 😀

    Yeah you will I’ve lost count on the friends I’ve lost. Like you I have a 12 year old child but I’m single so probably will have no more babies 😀

    Since I had my son the mums I know were either married or career women or whatever so I think maybe in a way I don’t have that in common. And some of my friends have kids way younger than mine. I still like getting invites to parties. I hope you like parties because you will probably get lots of invites!

    Try your local mum and child play centre. Also you may find mums in the antinatal classes (if yours offers them)

    I’m single too, I’m no longer with my unborn babies dad. We literally do not talk to eachother he even walks past me in town! So I’m 100% doing this alone im scared but soooo excited!

    Most of my friends I honestly don’t bother with and the ones I do they’re still partying etc so Ifvim not alone I surround myself with family. Unfortunately I’m not going to antenatal as I don’t have time due to work commitments and being at home with my daughter, I’m sure once I have my babies my hormones will go back to normal! 😂
