Hard hearing others talk about their so kissing their bellies, complimenting the look, etc. ok to be fair I'm crying after reading the comments. I knew I shouldn't have read it. Anyone else feel like, "this isn't how it's supposed to be." Damn sitcoms raising the expectations. 95% certain this will be my first and only kid. It's hard to not want another just so I can have that loving experience, but I know there's no guarantee that the next time would be any different. I mean I was married and my baby was planned. How do you head off these circumstances? Sigh. Thanks for letting me whine.

 HUGS*** I know the feeling this is the second time I am going through the same situation and I will not ever allow myself to go through it again. But as long as my girls are happy I will be happy.

((Hugs)) When my belly first started getting bigger and I could feel him move I cried all the time over every precious moment his dad was missing out on. Id like to say it gets easier but i just got medicated and dad came back to us. I know it hurts but this is what i told myself every day...."he does not deserve this. If he could choose to miss out on these amazing moments, he doesnt deserve them. He doesnt deserve this wonderful baby that will one day be an amazing man who i will never allow do this to a woman. Im going to raise his son to be a better man than he is."

When my son is here it will be way different. I've already started to put the positive spin on it when I got to put his stroller, bassinet, and bouncer together. It's nice to be selfish with it, but I may just punch the next supportive husband I see lol. Then appologize to his wife of course.

I feel you sweety. I do pretty good most of the time, knowing I'm alone well, I try to think of it as I'm not alone anymore, because I can feel life within. Sometimes I really wish my bd lived closer and we could be in a relationship, but other times I know that won't ever happen. 

I try to tell myself "BE HAPPY, You're having a baby, this is what you always wanted and they said it would never happen" Now I'm pregnant and alone. I try to be happy...I am happy, but sad sometimes. I wish I had better strength for you. Just try to see the wonderful. I wish you enough.

When i was pregnant with dd, i would sit there and cry my eyes almost every night. I kept thinking to myself that i couldnt do this on my own abd had all these negative thoughts. I still do at times, even though im going to school to be able to provide for myself and my daughter. And will admit that i am a little jealous of some of my friends because even though they arent married, their so's are still with them.

Exactly.. same here. I feel a bitterness towards couples and even women who just simply have their children's fathers around. I drove myself home from.the hospital after I had my DD, and I was alone for both of my pregnancies. It hurts :( I DONT want more children.. but it wouldbe nice to someday have a baby with a man who loves me and the baby and sticks around. I have no idea what that feels like :(
