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!

    Pregnancy is supposed to be this wonderful period when a woman grows gradually into motherhood. Surrounded by similarly pregnant friends and wise old relatives who have been there, done that. For the luckiest pregnant women, that camaraderie is exactly what pregnancy. Not to mention birth and parenting is all about. For the rest of us, pregnancy and everything that follows can actually be kind of lonely. If you’re pregnant and lonely, you should know that loneliness during pregnancy is actually not unusual. The first woman in a group of friends to procreate may find herself not only unable to share what she’s going through with her besties. But also an object suddenly worthy of study. A soon-to-be mama with mostly guy friends can feel this even more acutely. And even if a woman has pregnant friends. Her pregnancy may be so different from theirs that she feels effectively isolated. After all, even a normal nine months can be stressful! It can be really hard to meet moms (to be) who are facing the same issues. So perhaps you might consider seeing a counsellor.
