I'm a 33 year old single mom of a nearly 3 year old... and pregnant with my 2nd child.
My daughter's father cheated on me and moved out on me when I was on vacation visiting my family when she was only 6 months old. No warning. Nothing. We had been together nearly 7 years at the time. Never married.
Now i've been dating my current boyfriend since April of last year (almost 9 months) and i'm 5.5 months pregnant... yes, an ooops baby.
I'm pretty much doing this on my own. My daughter and I just moved out of my parents' house and into a basement suite on January 1st. We're doing pretty well. I"m not really sure if I even want to do this with him. He's very immature, has no job,e tc. etc... and he has a 6 year old already that he can barely take care of.
So anyways... here I am.. single mommy of 1 and 1-to-be. I'm not really scared, i've done it once pretty much on my own, but i'm just frustrated with life. This is never how I thought my life would be
I just wanted to say, life is RARELY what we expect it to be And that's not always a bad thing! I do understand how you feel, though. I never expected to be 27 and a single mommy and no dating prospects. However, I find that it helps to look at the other side, too. I have friends who are married, have children, and still have troubles. Even friends in happy marriages have struggles that we, as single mommies, don't have. I'm not saying it's preferable to be a single mom, because I want to get married as much as anyone However, I think sometimes it is so easy to glamourize the life of married friends and think about how easy it is. Just know, there are struggles in every situation.
That said, I know you will do amazing as a mommy to two! And in a year, you won't even think about wanting it any other way Your sweet daughter will have a sibling and a play mate, and you will have another little one to love!
