Pregnant at 37 & Alone

Hi all

I recently found out I was pregnant but the father who I've only been with a year doesn't seem interested, he is very controlling. I have a teenager and a 10 year old but feel very alone. don't have many friends and sometimes feel I have no support. Everyone pressuring me to get rid as my age and the fact it's baby number 3 ....... need to find a support group, any ideas?

    Hi, I'm 40 and a first time mom. My little one is almost 5 months, but I remember feeling the same way this time last year. I don't know of any support groups but if you want someone to talk to, let me know.

    Thank you all it's good to know I have people I can talk too.

    How do you get over the fact someone you loved has let you down.... it's a situation I didn't expect to be in.

    Hi Emma. I am really sorry to hear what you are undergoing. Normally, one doesn't feel that much lonely around kids. And you have two. But since you mentioned their age. I can understand they won't be much of a company to you. The teenagers nowadays don't value parents. And the 10 y/o are also prone to independence. May be you allow the third child to enter the world. Who knows you might find joy? When the baby will keep you busy. And please. Overlook these ages. I'm 34, 35 or 40... pregnant. You are human. Not numbers. Treat yourself nicely. Have a good life, lady. xx

    Keep your head up! I'm sure things may seem really difficult but it best to explore all possibilities. That being said, you can't let others pressure you into doing things you personally don't want to do!
    You can be your own support group if need be!
    Check this out! It might give you some well need positivity and motivation!

    I am really sorry for your condition. I am facing these fertility issues. I am happy for you that you conceived and you are following the right ways. I am hoping for the best. By reading your story i came to know that no one is happy from what actually going through from her life. I am finding it really tough to live now days.

    Hey there! I'm really sorry that you feel alone. Genuinely saying, you shouldn't feel alone with 2 kids. Maybe after the 3rd one, you'll get busy with the baby and you don't feel lonely. In my view, children are a blessing. Getting rid of your child is the worst thing. The rest is on you. I wish you get happiness back in your life and you find someone who doesn't let you feel alone. Good Luck!

    It hurts me to see so many of us in this situation. But it lets me know that nothing is wrong with me or you but more the men in our lives or who were in our lives. Going through this pregnancy alone was nothing I ever pictured for myself and I never wished it on anyone else. But here I am. Crying and feeling weak for always crying. I'm sad and not even excited about it. But I want you ladies to know God loves us and he won't leave our side. Even though we didn't do everything the right way. He is forgiving and we should try and pray and if we pray don't be afraid to pray specific and if you pray specific and it doesn't go as you pray. Just know that Gods plan for your life is better and more than you could imagine for your own life. Take 1 day at a time girl,. Do small things to make you smile. All of the pent up frustration will disappear soon as your baby is here. Good Luck.
