My daughter is 19 months old, and now I'm due in February with my second! I'm really nervous & scared. Has anyone gone through this? All my friends that have 2 kids are/were married and had their husband's help. I live w my parents, but this is my responsibility. Are there any tips? Anything I need to know? Anything would help!

You aren't really a single mom,you are a mom with a dad who refuses to marry. A single is a mom ,who was with a man and he picks up and leaves and she has to do everything for her kids. Too many times women allow men to keep coming to their beds and innocent babies are being conceived, if,he didn't take of your 19 month old,do you really think he is going to move you out of your parents home,you are 100% correct,these babies are your responsibility,go to court ,get support,and don't let this jerk back in your bed. You can make it,but, not with him.

I've been there, my advice no matter what try to be the best mommy that you can be meaning patient and loving, play with them and teach them abc's and 123's and try to teach them good eating habits now that they are babies. Also...don't worry about what all your friends that don't have kids are doing, don't worry about what you might be missing out on. Don't drink and drive with your babies and just always try to remember that your their mommy and all they have is you. You might have parents who help or whatever but no one will love them the way that you do. Make good choices for them because they can't make them for themselves, don't leave them with people you don't know very well or you have doubts...if your heart tells you NO DONT DO IT... then pay attention to that. I just wish someone would have told me all the things that I'm telling you..I made so many mistakes and I have so many regrets. You don't want that for you
