I was a single when I was pregnant for my twins and it was very difficult but the moment I found out I was pregnant, I made everything about the baby. That has to be your main focus. When you start to feel movement, it honestly feels that emptiness you feel from your one time significant other. Keep your head up and know that there is no love like a mother for her child and my twins are the most treasured thing in my life. I met my now husband when they were 4 and he is wonderful to them and we are now expecting again. It is all worth it in the end. Reach out to other moms who are going through a similar situation.

I am 39 with a six weeks old baby.  I went through my pregnancy all by myself. You can do it, just keep the faith and be strong. Good luck.

You are in a tough place. A big hugs from me. But ask for help. My last (fchp) insurance even had a counselor that called me monthly. But, right now, you need more often than monthly.

Some resources are:
.Some workplaces have counselors which do 3/4 sessions with you for free.
.There's community based free counseling.
.Talk to your ob. They should have resources in your hospital.
.Call your insurance. They can guide you.
.If the doc suggested meds, take them. They have ones that are safe for the baby.

Most importantly,talk to your family and friends. The good ones, not the crazy ones. You need them more than ever. I am the one to crawl in my own shell, when things get tough, till i figure things out on my own. But, pregnancy is definitely not the time to do that.

Sending love and good thoughts your way.
