I recently found that i am pregnant with triplets by a guy who I just started dating. Turns out I got pregnant the first time we had sex! I have been a single mother for the past 11 years to my son, and I swore I would never do it again, but now here I am and not with just one more baby but three! The father is not supportive at all so i know this is all gonna be on me. I don't see how I'm going to do this. I'm really starting to get scared.

I am single and had twins - it is hard - can't imagine triplets!

Do you want more kids?  What do you think about adoptions?

I would seek help out there for moms with multiples....get looped into support groups..and I would even seek assistance for a while.  3 is alot at one time.

I'm a single mom. My oldest is 16 and my twins are 12. It wasn't as difficult as everyone said it would be when they were infants. For me, twin infants was wayyyyy easier than twin toddlers...once they could run in opposite directions all hell broke loose.

Try to find support groups, even online...it helps to have people you can vent to and who can offer support...if just a message saying " You can do this". As far as actual parenting of multiples...prepare as much in advance as you can. Your pregnancy is higher risk with higher order multiples (anything over twins) and you should plan for possible periods of bed rest if you have complications. I cannot stress enough how much advance planning helps...run though scenarios, If they put you on bedrest towards the end of your pregnancy...how would it affect your day to day life? What areas would you need help with...getting your son to school, paying bills, etc....who could help you? What social service programs might you need to sign up for? Once you deliver it will probably be shear choas for at least the first couple of weeks until you get a routine down...it's really helpful if you have a freezer stocked with meals that just need to be heated up for those days where you are so tired you can't see straight.

Planning is a huge stress reliever for me. The less you leave up in the air, the less you have to worry and stress about! Make sure you file for child support, definitely don't let him off the hook to at least be financially responsible for his children.

How far along are you?
