Single nearly-a-parent


I stumbled across this community by accident and was so heartened by how supportive everyone seems that I thought I'd post. I'm 20 weeks pregnant, single and frightened half to death; by how madly out of control my body is, by the thought of labour, by the sheer responsibility of being a parent.

Just to find some people who are out there, managing and looking out for one another is so reassuring! I want more than anything to be a good mum- I want my baby very much. It's just that some days are harder than others, and it seems as though everytime I turn around there's another happy couple, or another article on how working mothers damage their kids, or how I should go through labour with no more pain relief than a back rub :(

I'm normally very in control and positive- honest!
