Hi. I'm Vanessa and I'm 21. I just lost my fiance in Iraq. He was a marine. We are expecting our first child. It's been really hard dealing with because I feel like all the things we promised this child seem to have been taken away like a stable family. It seems like since it's happened I've been going full speed ahead to try to stay positive and not stressed for the baby but some days it gets hard. I'm really thankful that I will have this baby by him to remind me everyday of him but I'm really nervous about having to raise this child alone. I guess I just really need to in a way find a productive way to get it out instead of stressing and getting sick which I know isn't healthy. This is just where I find myself struggling the most lately.

Wow hun... I can't relate at all and don't know what to say to be honest, but I feel for you and your baby. Find strength through your baby, and know that yes its hard to be a single Mommy, but you can do it. Keep your head up, I wish you all the best. **hugs**

Welcome to the board, honey, and I am so very sorry for your loss

I can;t begin to imagine what you are going through right now, but I really feel for you and your baby. JM is a very supportive place and I am sure you will make many friends here to help you when you are feeling low and any time you need to talk please come and let it all out. We will always be here for you and will always lend you a friendly ear or a shoulder to cry on.

It's totally natural to feel nervous and scared about raising your baby alone, especially as you have been through such a traumatic time. Have you been offered any kind of counselling or therapy to help you deal with your loss and the stress it has brought you? It might help to talk it through with someone.

Please drop by any time, honey. You will be in my thoughts and prayers x x
