Hello everyone I am new to this group and I am so glad that I have found you. I come here asking for understanding...not judgement. I am 31 years old and have a 9 new old daughter from a 7 year marriage that ended 5 years ago. So basically I had her when I was 21. Anyways, I have shared parenting with her father and even though I think it can be too much sometimes...she deals pretty well. I have dated in the past but never tied the knot again. Long story short I met someone Aug 2006 and we have been on again off again so many times because he is in a messed up situation and I didn't want to nor should have to deal with it. Well, as it ends up I am pregnant. He says he is excited and we will have our life together but we have lost another baby to a miscarriage already (no known cause). I am scared for many reasons. 1) I want a healthy pregnancy 2) What am I going to tell my daughter. 3) I don't want him to be with me only because of a baby but I do want a family life etc, etc, etc.
I need to know that I can do this. What is that old saying...Perpare for the worst, hope for the best? Any advice is welcomed.
