  • I felt very alone when I was single and pregnant. Felt like I stuck out. Didn't get to do stuff that others did, etc. But guess what, I felt the same when I was married and preg too. After baby gets here it'll help!

  • For me, I would say easier. Since I didn't expect the father to do anything for me or my child anyways. Being the house hold provider and head of the household that does everything. It be easier to not have a big kid in the house that makes my load heavier.

  • well, at least that was for my daughter and sons father. This time around. It helps a lot to be with someone that knows that responsibilities are shared and not fully one to fulfill.

  • It depends on what you make of your situation. Yes mine was easier but I had my parents help and support. I also found a wonderful husband and father a few years later. Things will hopefully look up :)
